Sorry to reply to my own post, but I seem to have fixed the problem and some
others I was having. Since I have been unable to find any reference to what
I did in any FAQ I thought I would post here for those that might be
experiencing the same. As well as the problem above, previously although I
did not experience the problem described above I needed to login as root to
get it play past the first segment of video. Now I can watch a complete dvd
without logging out of my personal account.
1) Build a new kernel with the udf filesystem in it (as a module)
2) Change the mount point for the /dev/dvd to be
a) auto file type rather than iso9660
b) allow users to mount it.
I don't know why these two changes worked - but I can now watch dvds and
before I couldn't :-)
