    Are you talking about playing it on your computer in Ubuntu? It shouldn't be any different than playing any other commercial, copy-protected DVDs. Make sure you have all the codecs installed. Follow the instructions in the section "Use alternative decryption software" on this page and you should be all set.

    Yes, Ubuntu. It's been several years since I played copy protected DVDs: I remember doing 4gb copies from DVD to DVD , but since then I switched to BT downloads for popular movies.

    I will pretend that you never said this since this is an illegal activity. I don't know if a forum moderator will come here and do anything with this thread because of this statement.

    You can check the documentation here. It's not something difficult, just a couple of commands you need to give in the terminal.
