Dont waste your time. VLC WILL NOT play mpg files on a linux machine. Only on a Windows machine will VLC work.

VLC v1.1.9

If you have problems playing DVDs with v. 2.x.x for example video audio sync issues, ActiveX issues, DVD or drive not recognised issues, then try going back to versions 1.1.2 through 1.1.9.
