    You can use a debian package as has been suggested or perhaps experiment with building your own:

    Medibuntu will need a new maintainer

    https://launchpad.net/medibuntu/+announcement/11219

    Surprised this went under the radar considering how critical medibuntu is.
    While things like gstreamer do okay we do need things like libdvdcss for certain DVD's so I hope a new maintainer comes before 13.10 or 14.04

    Re: Medibuntu will need a new maintainer

    This has been posted in the multimedia forum over a month ago. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2135070

    I agree that this is critical for new users who expect basic multimedia support like dvd and w64 codecs from Ubuntu. On the other hand, for more experienced users this may not be a big problem. I compiled libdvdcss from the tarball downloaded from Videolan (which is more updated than medibuntu)

    Re: Medibuntu abandoned

    Yeah sorry, but this bothers me as not everyone can manually hand code this sort of thing.
    Hope it will have a new maintainer as really compiling can be rather a hard thing.

    The little mini-guide I put together for building libdvdcss actually only involves copying a blob of text and then pasting it in a Terminal window

    True but I suspect that the script mentioned on that page downloads libdvdcss from Medibuntu.

    I am not sure if you are replying to my post or another but my own offering downloads from videolan not Medibuntu.

    Yeah but its a little intimidating using a terminal for a newer user, whom I consider every time.
    I rather link to ppas or webpages they can link to a .deb from
