Hi!

Can't you read the DVD? Can you read the DVD in another computer? Can you read another DVD in the Fedora 14 machine? It might be your DVD-reader that's failing.

Or can you read the DVD, but VLC can't play it? Then you might have a copy protection failure. There are currently 6 forms of copy protection which apply to DVD's.

Please follow this guide: http://ranjith.zfs.in/fedora-14-post-installation-guide/

Section Enable Restricted Repositories in Fedora 14 will let you install VLC and other restricted software. When done, do (as root):

yum update
yum install vlc


Section DVD and Video Players for Fedora 14 will help you gain DVD playback, with or without VLC.

I'd suggest you try another DVD movie in your computer. There are some DVD movies that can't be played in Linux even though you've enabled restricted repositories because of the copy protection used.
