First of all VLC wouldn't play DVDs at all, then I downloaded a recommended library. It now trys top play the DVD, but I get a Green screen. Audio is fine.

Running Ubuntu-MATE 16.05 on G5 Mac PowerPC

  • What graphics card do you have in that G5 Mac PowerPC? – user589808 Nov 19 '16 at 12:36
  • Just says mac 20" under hardware, nothing specific. Is there any specific way to find out? On bootup it does mention something about radeon – Bob Young Nov 25 '16 at 2:52

I had the green-screen issue on Xubuntu 17.04 and fixed it via the following:

  1. In VLC select Tools -> Preferences
  2. Select the Input/Codecs tab
  3. Change the Hardware-accelerated decoding option to Disable
