I just tried xine with libdvdnav4, libdvdread3 and libdvdcss2 1.2.8 and
it crashed as you described. Using totem instead (based on the
underlying xine libs at the moment) did not crash though it did output
the same errors.
yes.. i can open totem but when I play a dvd.. no movie screen is shown and then it just hangs.. sigh
