Just FYI: The "Sex and the City 1" DVD 1 (Region code 2 but NTSC
format funnily enough and sold in the UK) fails with vlc
(0.2.73-0.2.83) as well. It tries to play the individual titles on the
DVD but fails after the first 1sec or so---that first 1sec or so is
intentional "white noise" eventually superimposed with the HBO logo
(if viewed on a normal DVD player).
