    Can't get DVDs to play

    I've followed the guide here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...ts/PlayingDVDs, but still can't play DVDs. I get the following from vlc -vvv

    Re: Can't get DVDs to play

    That webpage is now a bit outdated, so see http://www.videolan.org/developers/libdvdcss.html where you can see the following about installing libdvdcss2

    Last version of libdvdcss is 1.2.13.

    Our Debian/Ubuntu repository can be accessed by adding the following content to /etc/apt/sources.list

    deb http://download.videolan.org/pub/debian/stable/ /
    deb-src http://download.videolan.org/pub/debian/stable/ /
    And by running

    wget -O - http://download.videolan.org/pub/deb...n-apt.asc|sudo apt-key add -

    No need for that, the install-css.sh script has been updated to point to the vlc repo.

    Thanks for that info.

    I had not caught up with that fact, and as I previously used the medibuntu repos, I did not use the install-css.sh script either.

    It does indeed save a bit of a fuss.
