Had VLC installed via Mac's precompiled VLC image already, but it wouldn't
and still won't play the DVD. Was hoping the MacPorts version would and that
I could otherwise upgrade it easily like I did the VLC player under Ubuntu

Installed the latest VLC .dmg again. Had errors reading the DVD again. The
DVD that did run under VLC/Ubuntu with the mentioned added dvdread4. Posted
a message on the VLC forum.
