Playing DVDs

Most commercial DVDs are encrypted with CSS (the Content Scrambling System), which attempts to restrict the software that can play a DVD. By installing the libdvdcss2 package you can play encrypted DVDs. To get it installed you need to fallow this steps:

  • Open a terminal. Select Applications->Accesories->Terminal if you are in a Gnome session or ALT+F1 (ALT+F11 to go back) if you are using the LinuxMCE interface.
  • Type this set of commands:
sudo apt-get install -y libdvdread3
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/
  • Insert a Video DVD in the LinuxMCE drive to test it ;)
