How To Enable Playback of CSS Encrypted DVDs on Your System

Problem:
Many commercial DVDs are encrypted with CSS (Content Scramble System) which can make them to not play in VLC or any other mediaplayer.

Solution:
Install libdvdcss2 on your system!


How To:   PEPPERMINT 6

Update the Package cache:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
Run the pre-installed script:
Code: [Select]
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
If you get "command not found" you're probably trying this on Peppermint 7  :P

If you're sure you are on Peppermint 6 try again with:

Install libdvdread4:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libdvdread4
Run the installed script:
Code: [Select]
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

This should now make that CSS Encrypted DVDs play on your system, a restart may be needed!




How To:   PEPPERMINT 7

Update the Package cache:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
Install libdvd-pkg:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libdvd-pkg

Select (if not already selected by default) the <Ok> button with the Tab key and hit Enter to confirm.


Select (if not already selected by default) the <Yes> button with the Tab key and hit Enter to confirm.

Configure libdvd-pkg:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

Select (if not already selected by default) the <Yes> button with the Tab key and hit Enter to confirm.


This should now make that CSS Encrypted DVDs play on your system, a restart may be needed!
