I mounted a DVD ISO from an external drive with AcetoneISO2 but I can't play the movie. I tried with VLC and Totem with no success. ┬┐Does anyone know why VLC or Totem can't play the movie? (I also tried to play the DVD ISO directly with AcetoneISO2 but it did not work). Thank you

What does it do? Does it give you an error? Have you tried to install these libraries? libdvdreadlibdvdcsslibdvdnavgstreamer-plugins-uglygstreamer-plugins-bad

Install libdvdcss from the livna repository. That should give you the required functionality.

Thank you for your answer but unfortunatedly I already have installed the latest version of libdvdcss and the problem persists

Does the problem persist with other DVDs?
