Definitely something is wrong with your VLC (probably an older version) since I can play US DVDs with VLC . In my understanding DVD standards in US a lose because of proprietary **** so you might have been just unlucky to pick the one with really strange coding.

I would strongly suggest you try MPlayer (if everything fails to play some format usually MPlayer works). I am also able to play DVDs with gxine.

I was able to play DVDs in the past with Kaffeine when I run PC-BSD for a short period of time. Since, I run Gnome I didn't bother to install Kaffeine.

I am NOT able to play DVDs with Movie Player from Gnome and I have not really tried XMPS although I have the application on my computer.

I hope this helps
