Ok so I've tried to focus on the actual error message:

playCtx, Error: Attempting to setup a player, but it already exists.

But I'm not finding anything that seems helpful. I see archive posts
suggesting that i switch to the builds repo - my mythfrontend is
already built from source.

I went and read the source code on where this error is thrown from and
that wasn't very clear to me either:

00360 bool PlayerContext::HasNVP(void) const
00361 {
00362     QMutexLocker locker(&deleteNVPLock);
00363     return nvp;
00364 }

Any help on this would be appreciated. Where as I can play this in
VLC, I am unable to slow the DVD drive down and it's way too loud by
default. I'd like to use the internal player since I can use
setup-->video settings to adjust the DVD speed.
