Ubuntu: DVD Playback using Xubuntu


I have updated my software and installed VLC and installed the DVD Extras pack as suggested but the DVD will not play. I have tried several DVD's and reinstalled the Xubuntu from fresh and updated and upgraded but still no play I get the error message: GStreamer backend error: No valid frames found before end of stream. I have installed the codecs that came with the Extras pack and confirmed the license agreement. What have I missed....


I searched for solutions to these error messages and found the answer here, that solved my issue with DVD's not playing The page has some useful tips and tricks to solve many problems with your OS. I was instructed to open the terminal and cut and paste this text, sudo apt-get install libdvdread4, followed by, sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh, this has fixed the errors and now the DVD's play as the software installed decryption information to allow this.
