Thank you! You saved the day, I can now go to sleep and watch Space Ghost: Coast to Coast tonight; just what I needed.

I had to do a bit more to get mine working but your help has helped me. I made a blog as well explaining what I needed to do.

Thanks for getting me started.

Here's an easier way:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh


Done... Plus I can watch all the web content as well ;)
