    See what VLC guys say : http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-mandriva.html
    First download & install 'Easy urpmi' ( http://plf.zarb.org/)

    Now open the Terminal Window and login as Root :
    $ su -
    (Enter password)
    # urpmi libdvdcss2 libdvdplay0 wxvlc vlc-plugin-a52 vlc-plugin-ogg vlc-plugin-mad
    This installs the required packages to play VCD/DVD etc.,
