Hello everyone,

I have found Ubuntu to be a fantastic linux distro with awesome wireless internet support, but one area I found lacking was that it does not come with "out of the box" playback of DVD movies. I read through the FAQ on the Ubuntu site was a bit confused on how to install a mpeg2 decoder for Ubuntu and which media player (Xine?) to use for playback.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
