Description

I was unable to read/play a DVD on Ubuntu despite have the extras and restricted packages. The disc would show up, however the contents were unable to be seen or played. This is a symptom of disc encryption, and can be fixed by installing libdvdcss.

  • Install libdvdread4
    sudo apt-get install libdvdread4
    
  • Run the install-css.sh script:
    sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
    

After the installation the DVD contents are now readable and playable.
