I can't get VLC Movie Player to play my DVD movies. It recognizes that the movie is in the player, but won't play. I know the player is good becuz I can watch the movies on Winblows :x
Any opinions on what Debian app might be a better choice for a movie and music player? ..... seems that my D600 had Mplayer, but I'm not sure if that is the best available in the Debian packages.

It should really have all the stuff it needs, except maybe to read the encryption. Do you have libdvdcss2 installed?

If you want my PERSONAL opinion, if you don't mind the bloat, xbmc plays movies much smoother. I like Clementine (slightly more minimalistic music player with playlist support based on the same core as amarok) for music.
