I do have libcss and libdvdread
I need to use mplayer -dvd 1 rather than -vcd 2
It was with a dvd - it now works as far as playing what I assume is the first

cdrom group rights)

Ahh - now the movie seems to play past the first end of file - I think this
must be a permissions problem - someone has said add write access to the dvd
