Can't play DVDs

I am trying to play a DVD with Crunchbang Waldorf. What is needed to enable this?
I tried with VLC and couldn't get it to work. I tried to install gxine and mplayer which wouldn't install, so don't know what else to use.

Thanks

I tried with /dev/sr0; didn't make a differece. /dev/dvd is a link to /dev/sr0

Re: Can't play DVDs

I think you need a more recent version of libdvdcss but I'm not sure how you would get it outside of deb-multimedia, which I don't recommend (because it implies adding an additional third party that you need to trust and then there's the issue of dependencies etc.).
