    Cant play DVD with 11.04

    I put in the Fast and Furious and wanted to watch the movie on natty. I cant play the movie becuase it says
    Code:
    Could not read DVD. This may be because the DVD is encrypted and a DVD decryption library is not installed.
    I have installed Ubuntu restricted extras and also libdvdread4 and still doesnt work. Any suggesstions?

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu You need to install packages for decrypting the movies.

    32bit
    Code:
    wget -c http://packages.medibuntu.org/pool/free/libd/libdvdcss/libdvdcss2_1.2.9-2medibuntu4_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libdvdcss2_1.2.9-2medibuntu4_i386.deb
    64bit
    Code:
    wget -c http://packages.medibuntu.org/pool/free/libd/libdvdcss/libdvdcss2_1.2.9-2medibuntu4_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libdvdcss2_1.2.9-2medibuntu4_amd64.deb

    Has this changed since Maverick? I also have Maverick installed on another partition and it can read dvd's.

    +1 I haven't had to do it yet myself but I've done some reading on it and I have that repo installed in synaptic (for future use).

    By the way - I think it may be libdvdcss2 (sometimes called libdvdcss) that you need. Check me on that someone please.

    Thx

    Just a note, you'll also need this even if you install VLC, which out of the box doesn't support encrypted DVD's.

    libdvdcss2 is what is required and is what uRock's command installs. You are right.

    Even having libdvdread4 installed doesn't automatically install libdvdcss2 (though it does provide a script in /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4 called install-css.sh which will do the job of installing for you, if used). I believe this may be for legal reasons with regard to what the distro itself can distribute.

    You should always use the medibuntu repo for codecs.

    I did the suggested install above.
    I also installed the Restricted Extras.

    I still cannot play DVDs and still get the message that the DVD Decryption Library is not installed

    I verified that libdvdcss2 installed.

    Thank you! This worked! I was able to play DVDs before I upgraded but was getting the error message listed in the first post.

    Thanks Urock! This worked very quickly and easily. I just switched from Windows XP yesterday and was a little worried about command line, but this was no problem. Now I can watch my movies!
