    Default Installing codecs for playing DVD.

    Hey there, just a second ago, I tried to play a DVD using Totem and obviously, I had to install the drivers. I followed the information on-screen at downloaded the one click install thing for all the codecs I would need. After waiting for a couple of seconds, the wizard type thing told me that everything had finished installing and completed successfully. Apart from the fact that the DVD still wouldn't play, and prompted me to repeat the whole process again... Which I did, and surprise, still no luck.

    I'm I missing something really simple? Why isn't it working? Does it normally work for people?

    Thanks.

    Hey, these are the packages I installed already.. They didn't seem to have any effect on being able to play DVD's.

    Thanks anyway.
