Are you trying to play one of those nasty new DVDs from Sony (new
protection scheme)? In order to get them to work with mplayer you need
to compile a version of dvdnav from the mplayer svn server, recompile
the svn version of mplayer to link against it and use
dvdnav://<track_number> instead of dvd://<track_number>.
