Also I'm unsure if it is a problem with the decryption keys (do they still change keys on plain dvds?) or some other issue (different container or encoding).

It would certainly help if you

1.) Told which mplayer version you're using
2.) Told if, and if so how, you compiled mplayer yourself
3.) Gave your exact command line
4.) Gave the exact output of that command including, but not limited to,
the actual error message.

because for some strange reason my crystal ball refuses to tell me those
things today.
