Playing Cinema DVDs problem

I'm getting really modern thse days: I finally bought a DVD player. a
friend lent me the Thomas Crown affaire (MGM, 1999?) and it played very
well.

So I rented Batman (Warner, 2008) and it's one problem after another I
have libdvdcss installed, of course. None of the 2 videos are bootlegged,
they're official commercial releases. There are a few scratches on the
DVD.

SMPlayer refuses to play it. I then found out that it was possible to play
encrypted for time zones DVDs with this command:

mplayer -sb 2500000 dvd://

and it does play. There are a couple of minutes of silence at the
beginning, then it plays in Spanish. Of course, I could learn all of
MPlayer's commands, but I'd prefer to use an interface. So, I added "-sb
2500000" in Preferences, Advanced, Options for MPlayer, Options in
smplayer

 and everything seems OK till past TITLE_10:

-----------------------------------

ID_DVD_TITLE_10_LENGTH=74.033

*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in

Here's the output for:

           ************************************************
           **** Your system is too SLOW to play this!  ****
           ************************************************

Possible reasons, problems, workarounds:
- Most common: broken/buggy _audio_ driver
  - Try -ao sdl or use the OSS emulation of ALSA.
  - Experiment with different values for -autosync, 30 is a good start.
- Slow video output
  - Try a different -vo driver (-vo help for a list) or try -framedrop!
- Slow CPU
  - Don't try to play a big DVD/DivX on a slow CPU! Try some of the
lavdopts,
    e.g. -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts lowres=1:fast:skiploopfilter=all.
- Broken file
  - Try various combinations of -nobps -ni -forceidx -mc 0.
- Slow media (NFS/SMB mounts, DVD, VCD etc)
  - Try -cache 8192.
- Are you using -cache to play a non-interleaved AVI file?
  - Try -nocache.

If none of this helps you, read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html.
