Hi folks

I have installed both ubuntu(with gnome) and kubuntu recently and 
neither of them seem to play DVD "out of the box". Is there a specific 
reason for that(copyright laws or something?)?

It strikes me as a issue that should be addressed to start to pull 
people away from Windoze. lots of windoze user will not use linux if it 
can't play DVD without hassle.

My installation was on sony vaio laptop which played all DVD with 
Windoze no problem (windvd, powerdvd).

If anyone can shed any light then thanks!
