I've tried VLC, Totem and MPlayer and while they differ in their unique kind of choppiness, none of them play smoothly.
The Ubuntu documentation suggest enabling DMA but the instructions don't seem to apply to a SCSI device.
How can I get the playback of DVDs to be smooth?
In case it matters, it's a BluRay player:
