Smile HOWTO: Make DVD playback work with libdvdcss

Took some searching and reading to figure out the answer to this in a clean and easy way, but it's an easy enough thing to do, so I figured I'd post it up.

RPMFusion, great as it is and all, has one glaring omission. So, for the time being, Livna is still around to handle this issue.

Code:
su
rpm -Uvh http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/10/i386/livna-release-9-2.noarch.rpm
yum install libdvdcss
And voila, DVD playback works in VLC player again.

True, you could just install the libdvdcss RPM manually, but this keeps it all in the repos and such. And if RPMFusion ever does come to its senses, then this will presumably migrate nicely.

Bee, this may not be a 'how-to' that's up to YOUR level, but if you check, you'll find over 500 threads about the issue. Clearly, some members, perhaps new to Fedora, can use this info.

I found a mirror: it resolves all the dependencies. RESOLVED.

Updated to Fedora 14

You can find libdvdcss2 and libdvdcss at atrpms. You need to install libdvdcss2 first.
Open a terminal type:


Fedora 14 x86_64:
Code:
su
rpm -Uvh http://dl.atrpms.net/all/libdvdcss2-1.2.10-5.fc14.x86_64.rpm
rpm -Uvh http://dl.atrpms.net/all/libdvdcss-1.2.10-5.fc14.x86_64.rpm
Fedora 14 x86:

Code:
su
rpm -Uvh http://dl.atrpms.net/all/libdvdcss2-1.2.10-5.fc14.i686.rpm
rpm -Uvh http://dl.atrpms.net/all/libdvdcss-1.2.10-5.fc14.i686.rpm

You could always install the atrpms repository but you may find conflicts with other packages from rpmfusion so it's best to disable it once you have installed it:
Fedora 14 x86_64:
Code:
su
rpm -Uvh http://dl.atrpms.net/all/atrpms-repo-14-3.fc14.x86_64.rpm
Fedora 14 x86:
Code:
su
rpm -Uvh http://dl.atrpms.net/all/atrpms-repo-14-3.fc14.i686.rpm
To disable the atrpms repository (recommended):
Code:
su
gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/atrpms.repo
Change enable=1 to enable=0 to disable it.

To install packages with the atrpms repository disabled:
Code:
yum --enablerepo=atrpms install libdvdcss2 libdvdcss

Re: HOWTO: Make DVD playback work with libdvdcss

Fresh install of Fedora 14 I used the following to get Movie Player to play dvds

In Terminal
su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub...na-release.rpm'

downloaded libdvdcss from the following mirror http://mirror.atrpms.net/livna/repo/14/x86_64/
install with archive manager

In Terminal
yum install libdvdcss

Okay. Thanks. But just for the record, there doesn't seem to be much point in that first step which installs the livna repository if you then in the next step go to the ATrms repository to download libdvdcss for a manual installation in the last step. That one package is the only package that Livna maintains for us.

You know, I have decided to skip the livna repo installation with Fedora 14. I just installed libdvdcss from backups. It hasn't been updated in a long time anyway.

A late reply, but since matthewf500 already went first... According to rpm.pbone.net, the package libdvdcss2 provides libdvdcss2 and libdvdcss. So what you said does no harm probably, but the second step may not be necessary.

Re: HOWTO: Make DVD playback work with libdvdcss

By the way, Otto, thanks very much for this post, commentary from ijits notwithstanding. In fact I could not play DVDs in Fedora 14, I am relatively new to Linux, and this fixed me up.

Well IMO, there was only one ijit above. And as you can see under his username, he eventually received his well-deserved reward. Everyone else above posted serious and sane replies intended to help readers.

Re: HOWTO: Make DVD playback work with libdvdcss

It only took 2 years!

By the by, how can I confirm that I am using libdvdcss2 or some other dvd library for playback?
