Actually, I don't think installing all the gstreamer codecs will help
with DVD playback... what you'll have to do is first go to
System>Administration>Software Sources and make sure you've got main,
universe, rsetricted, and multiverse checked off. Then, run the command
< sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/install-css.sh >
