Running into a problem playing DVD's on 14.04 LTS. I have installed all libs in various sections and do get the menus and initial menu videos to play however when the main movie plays the video become garbled. I also have a Windows XP VM running under VMWare player and it plays smooth with VLC so I don't think this is a hardware problem. Also have installed the lib-bluray stuff and keys...

VLC is caughing up many errors while the video plays. Seems to be bad dvd decrypt keys somehow??

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS x64 VLC 2.2.0-git Weatherwax

dmesg for bluray player

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Do videos already in your HDD play fine? In other words, does this issue occur only when you play videos from your DVD? Please add this info to your question description..(You can do this by pressing the 'edit' button above... –  Venki Jun 3 at 13:51
