I've never had a great deal of luck with using mplayer to play DVDs.
For one thing, if it ever shows the DVD menu, it only flashes up for a
brief moment.  You've got to faff around with picking the right
title/chapter to play from the mplayer menu.

I've found Xine to be better, and VLC almost as good (VLC seems more
taxing on my system).  But both of them play DVDs properly.
