It is not.

Sometimes and for some not yet known reasons (most likely the moon
phasis and a bad karma :), DVD playback is completely fscked up when
libdvdcss & libdvdread don't match the recommended version.

Of course YMMV with your hardware and software but in the general case
these two versions of libdvdread & libdvdcss are the only one currently
well-tested (and supported).

Do you mean interlaced frames (dunno the exact phrase) ?  If that's
that, try with the postprocess filters (man mplayer & search -npp). As a
quick hint, '-npp lb' or '-npp de,lb' might be what you want.
