VLC spits the error:
Playback failure: DVDRead could not open the disc "/dev/dvd". Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/dvd'. Check the log for details.
and the same thing for /dev/sr0
When trying to play through mplayer:
mplayer -dvd-device /dev/sr0 dvd://1
MPlayer SVN-r35920-4.7.2 (C) 2000-2013 MPlayer Team 203 audio & 421 video codecs mplayer: could not connect to socket mplayer: No such file or directory Failed to open LIRC support. You will not be able to use your remote control. Playing dvd://1. libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.12 for DVD access libdvdread: Could not open /dev/sr0 with libdvdcss. libdvdread: Can't open /dev/sr0 for reading Couldn't open DVD device: /dev/sr0 (No medium found) No stream found to handle url dvd://1 Exiting... (End of file)
I get the same result when I don't specify the dvd-device except '/dev/sr0' is replaced with '/dev/dvd'
So far, I can't access my DVD with any program, including VLC, mplayer, handbrake, etc. I am not too sure about mount points. Could that be an issue? I have ldm installed and followed these instructions. What else can I do to narrow down what is causing the problem?

A couple of thoughts.
Does lsblk show /dev/sr0 as your optical drive?
Does lsdvd or similar show there to be a chapter 1 on the DVD?
mplayer dvdnav:// -mouse-movements
Have you used this DVD drive with Arch before?
extra/libdvdcss 1.2.12-1 is from early march, but you have MPlayer SVN-r35920-4.7.2. Are you up to date?
pacman -Ss dvdcss mplayer extra/libdvdcss 1.2.13-1 [installed] ... extra/mplayer 35920-1 [installed] A movie player for linux
Edit: Spelling, grammar

Oh man I'm embarrassed. I was trying to play/rip the BluRay version of my DVD. Everything is up to date, I have used DVDs on Arch before... Everything is fine. I feel like an idiot. No problem here.
Edit: at least no problem that wasn't caused by my oversight. God, that was a day wasted...
