I finally got around to installing a dvd player. I followed the
instructions for Resticted Formats Playing DVD someone posted for me
last week, but I get an error message from Totem Movie Player that it
can not read from resource.
If I try to play a commercial dvd from VLC I get a title page showing
the movies title with a choice to play movie and some other things but
in about 1 second it disappears and I have the choice to push play pause
etc across the top and a blank white box. If I push play it repeats
title then blank screen
At this point I can play a home movie dvd with Totem or VLC although it
does give me a green stripe across the bottom of the frame.
Can anyone give me any suggestions on how to get the commercial dvds to
In your opinion which program is the best choice for playing DVD there
are quite a few of them?
