there is...

I've now tried

mplayer dvd://1 -vo sdl -ao sdl -dvd-device /dev/sr0

still the same output, window appears about a second, stays black an 
MPlayer exits...

Ok, back to the roots, I'll try to build it again, maybe I overlooked 

BTW, libdvdnav is only necessary for DVD menus, right? The internal 
libdvdread from MPlayer is sufficient to play DVDs?
