It is possible to play a video on your computer from an external dvd
player device. However, it is much simpler to just play the dvd from
your computer's dvd drive. You do have one, right? If yes, then please
give the  following command in a terminal and paste the output here:
$> dpkg -l *dvd* | grep ^i

and somebody will be able tell why you weren't able to play a dvd on
your computer.
