Ever tried to play your favorite DVD movie, just to find that you couldn’t since it was encrypted!. First time I tired it with the magical combination that allows you to do wonders (Linux+mplayer,VLC and Xine), I got the following error message: ” Encrypted VOB file! Read DOCS/HTML/en/dvd.html”. Seemingly, libdvdcss2 is required to play Encrypted DVDs, and it was not available in some standard repositories. But as usual, anything is possible under Linux, and the magic works here too 🙂
To install libdvdcss2 under Ubuntu (Dapper),
This script would automagically install libdvdcss2 for you, from the appropriate sources. And then its a matter of watching that DVD of yours in your favorite player! Is that cool or what??
