I've grabbed the output from mplayer and the dump from ktrace/kdump and
posted them at:

>From mplayer.txt, you see that it's complaing:
"Couldn't open DVD device: /dev/dvd"
Now /dev/dvd is a symlink to /dev/acd0:
[ adamk at sorrow - /usr/home/adamk ]: ls -l /dev/dvd
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 3 Aug 25 15:54 /dev/dvd -> /dev/acd0
And /dev/acd0 looks like:
[ adamk at sorrow - /usr/home/adamk ]: ls -l /dev/acd0
crw-r--r-- 1 root operator 117, 0 Aug 25 15:36 /dev/acd0
Note: user 'adamk' is part of the 'operator' group. In addition, I've
tried this as root just in case there's some strange permission thing
going on. Still no luck.
