Mythdvd uses an external program to play dvds.
I suggest using xine, mplayer or ogle from an xterm for testing purposes so you can see the output from the program.
After you have the command working, it's a simple matter of changing the dvdplayer command in mythdvd.
This link is a good place to start to get xine working correctly.
