I believe the totem with Fedora has dvd playback disabled.
The GStreamer plugins for libdvdread/libdvdnav read and load - but I  
think the upstream GStreamer backend developer has disabled dvd  
playback in totem, I can't get it to work (I have gotten it to work in  
older GStreamer backend totem) and the ChangeLog seems to indicate it  
has been disabled currently, I'm guessing some of the major hacking  
that went on with it broke it.

But totem-xine can play dvd's.
I don't use that, but I do use ogle - it works well, you can get it
