View Full Version : [ubuntu] amd64 DVD encrypted movie

November 2nd, 2008, 06:34 PM
I’ve been on every website on the internet for two days searching for a solution.
At this point I can start a DVD movie and see the FBI warnings and menu just fine.
But when the movie starts it becomes total junk to view on VLC.
On Mplayer-Xine and others I receive a notice “Are you trying to play an encrypted DVD without libdvdcss?”.
After installing over 100mb of suggested “solutions” I’m only thus far.
The only one I can not get is xine extra plugins, since there is no support for amd64.

I think I have the same problem, I can't reproduce ecrypted dvd files in my amd64 ubuntu 8.10. Did you find a solution?

have you read the thread at the top of each page in this forum index:
Sticky: [all variants] Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto (Multi-page thread 1 2 3 ... Last Page)

it suggests you need to enable the Medibuntu repository and run sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2 libdvdread3 libdvdnav4 vlc
