I'm trying to play a DVD created with DVD95, and get this error.

I've tried:

$ apport-collect 453267

...but it says libdvdnav isn't installed. Then verified in synaptic and it's installed. Reinstalled libdvdnav and it's the same.

I don't think apport-collect would bring much more at this point.

What's needed is someone to pass the problem upstream and get it fixed for real. I don't know if upstream is still active though.

There is only one assert(0) in playCell, so this is probably the code getting hit:

  if(!set_PGN(vm)) {
    /* Should not happen */
    return play_PGC_post(vm);

Just stumbled upon the same issue in raring as well.
