'mplayer -v' for verbose output.

Did you read the info file for vlc regarding optional dependencies?

Output of mplayer appears to be fine, besides from the fact that your version is older than Mplayer-nodeps.tcz (which I would recommend whenever you get an opportunity to switch).

I meant to imply that you would use the '-v' option in addition to the regular syntax of what you try to achieve.

Xine and Mplayer often require libdvdcss to read a DVD.  I am not sure if VLC requires it outside of it's normal install as I have not used it for DVD.  And normally I don't mount the drive to read a dvd
