Whatever player you use, may need to get plugins/libraries from non-US
sites such as livna.org or some of the freshrpms.net group (see
http://lists.freshrpms.net/mailman/listinfo/freshrpms-list) to play
commercial DVDs.  Fedora Core packages will never include these due to
patent/copyright issues, and take into account your local legal
situation.
