I've Loaded Everything suggested, I could search for, and almost all the multi-media apps available, and My DVD's will not play. The Device is found, /dev/sr0 as well as the required links to /dev/dvd (for some programs). Every lib...so has been found and installed. The Codecs are current. Somethings missing still. I'm frustrated.
33 years I've been writing software on everything from Univac 1080's to PC's. I've never had this much trouble with any OS on a single function.
P.S. My copy of BeOS 5 Still plays them on an old 16 Bit Machine. Even the VLC I use there will not run correctly here!
