libdvdcss is installed, and verified by playing other DVDs.
remembering off-hand, I installed medibuntu, followed the instructions at the ubuntu Restricted Formats DVD page
(including regionset), install w32 codecs and as many "dirty" formats as I thought would be related.
The DVD is "playing", via mplayer, but with a load of CRC errors and really bad video artefacts. This shows that
libdvdcss is installed, but not working perfectly with the given disc. The GUI players refuse full-stop to play the
*shrug* unless otherwise given reason, I'll assume this is something related to hardware. It's just very weird that it's
that specific DVD and that it works perfectly on my FC10.
