When I put in a DVD, Totem Player opens but I get an error:
Could not read from resource.....The same DVD works just
fine with Windows Media Player on the same dual boot machine.
Any clues why it doesn't work with Totem Player.

I should have added that it DOES play CD's and also Streaming
radio.

Download the VLC media player for Ubuntu.

Using the VLC media player was the only way to get my DVD to work with open SUSE 10.3.

Doesn't matter what media player you use, Totem, VLC, Mplayer -- none of them will play your DVD until you install libdvdcss2.

Thanks for the web site. I did look into that earlier but don't have enough knowledge
to use the sudo thing...I was hoping I could just do it from the synapic manager.

Found this, and just double clicked on it and it worked.
Just had to install it:
http://download.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcss....2.9-1_i386.deb

Playing a DVD as I speak. :thumbsup:

As an aside, hate to bring Windows up here but right now it works better than Totem.
I've been getting language changes using the same DVD with Totem and the lib install.
I'll have to keep working on it.
