That was weired, the dvd played probably
25% then all of a sudden freeze(only mplayer everything was fine);
then a reboot, then the dvd played all the way through without any issues.
I did a few days prior clean the lens on the disk drive, so maybe this
had something
todo with(can't see how), Maybe the lens is so clean, it can pickup on
scratches on the disk,
Anyways better to post when something like this occurs than not at all.
