Default DVD access


I'm having this really frustrating problem.
Perhaps I'm misunderstanding file permissions.

Here's the problem:

When I try to access my dvd at /dev/cd0c with ogle (and other players for that matter) my Openbsd will only allow this as root.
Now, I tried to create a video group, add myself and the directory to it. Resulting in the same error message(see end of post) as before.

Tried to make a ln -s of the dir, which results in a link that is in the wheel group, as I am i the wheel group and the read permission is set for "wheel"; shouldn't I be able to access the directory? That route didn't work either
The Openbsd FAQ doesn't go in to this and only offers a few examples of players to use.

Sorry to bring you this noob question, but I'm trying to switch all of my computers to OpenBSD and these multimedia features where kind of pre-configured in most of the linux distros that I used before I switched.

Anyway, thanks for your time, Z.

ERROR[ogle_nav]: faild to open/read the DVD
DVDSetDVDRoot:: Root not set
PS: my system is a standard OpenBSD 4.5 and the PKG binary install of Ogle.
