So NPTL seems to be the problem here.
I decided to update my mplayer. Now the bahaviour changed so that the 
dvd starts but the screen stays black.
This is what the log shows

Trying the cmdline gives

Seems like dxr3 is not supported.

The funny thing is that with a different DVD the cmdline starts playing 
the dvd but nothing is displayed even though the same error is shown.
