which got me here:
In VLC: Tools->Preferences->Video->Output to X11 Video Output.
So.... VLC working with the change ...GREAT!!!!! I have DVD playback!!!!!
Also, did same for GNOME MPlayer and it works!
Tried to do the same for Mplayer (Totem) but can't find where to change the video output, is it a terminal command? So Mplayer stil crashes. If you have any ideas, let me know
And THANKS to you guys to help me get it runnin. Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'll watch a movie!
