I ran into problems with MIB (1, region 1, widescreen) using ALSA.  Using
OSS-Emulation solved the problem with the last release.  I was helping them
debug it but somehow I managed to botch ALSA and I can't get the latest 
version to compile, but I'll figure it out eventually  (I want digital-out
on my SPDIF).

So far, I really like mplayer -dvd 1.  For most of my discs it 
"just plays the movie" without having to watch/skip intro's, FBI warnings,
et al.... It doesn't do AC3/DTS passthru, but I need a receiver first ;)
