Re: Playing DVDs in Frdora 25

To play Video DVDs , I would install a program called "kaffeine"

that is KDE based, but works fine on my Xfce desktop.

if you want to play music, I recommend xmms , xmms-mp3 (or xmms2) , also available from the rpmfusion repositories.

EDIT: but my favorite of all time is always "mplayer" , (dnf install mencoder mplayer mplayer-gui) , with that one you just type: mplayer dvd:// in a terminal.
b ut kaffeine is the most user-friendly, GUI tool.

Re: Playing DVDs in Frdora 25

for commercial DVD you need libdvdcss as well or they aren't accessible.

i recommend the remi package

Thanks, I use VLC most of the time. I thought libdvdcss was installed. I will get it installed.

Re: Playing DVDs in Frdora 25

I think a better (and legal, at least here in the US) way to play DVDs in Linux is to connect a "normal" external DVD player to a TV tuner card in your PC. That way you can use the DVD player's remote and use all its features just like on a TV, while watching the DVD through a program like tvtime (in the Fedora repos). That's what I do on my F25 system, and it works perfectly, as it should (since it's basically like watching a DVD on your TV set). Playing DVDs in Linux through software like mplayer which depends on libdvdcss hasn't always worked well for me - libdvdcss still has problems with some DVDs (not to mention being illegal in the US).

Re: Playing DVDs in Frdora 25

I'm in Canada. We do not have the extreme RIAA rules about codecs, etc, We developed non RIAA software that needs those codecs. We need those software codecs to use our software. It is an honor system to not use the RIAA copyrighted​ struff. Wel respect those RIAA rules to the letter.

Re: Playing DVDs in Frdora 25

I like pkgs.org. I haven't had to use it in awhile, so don't know if it's still as good as it used to be, but putting in libdvdcss in the search box brings results for both F25 and F26.

In a case like this, I'm not sure if this is best (replying to a more or less finished thread) or if you'd have been better off starting a new thread, but at any rate, using pkgs.org is often quicker, in my experience, than rpmfind.
It used to have a better interface for my purposes though, where you could easily navigate in w3m a text based browser, but regardless, it is often a good site to find packages for a distribution.

Re: Playing DVDs in Frdora 25

it helps to read the file distribution entry and know which build and architecture of Fedora you are using. All the information is there. e.g. Les RPM de Remi for Fedora 26 for i386. that's fairly self explanatory. you either use i386 for 32-bit or x86_64 for 64-bit.

the latest builds are at the top and the oldest builds further down.
