Hello,

I have a DVD that plays on MacOS using VLC, but will not play on
Debian using VLC.  Some details
Disc: Video Format: NTSC, Audio Format: Dolby, Media Format: Standard Definition
On MacOS 10.12.6 plays using either:
	Mac OS DVD Player App version:5500.70l, Framework Version: 5.9.6
	VLC on Mac: Version 2.2.8
On Debian 9.3 on Asus EEE PC 900A.
	VLC on Debian: Version 2.2.7
		sees disc title, spins disc, then nothing
	SMPlayer on Debian: Version 16.11.0
		sees disc title, spins disc, then error
			Exit code 2 "Failed to recognize file format"

Any suggestion?

Thanks,
John Hosack


Do you have libdvdcss2 installed?
