Lucid Lynx - Playing DVD's

Recommended Posts

I downloaded and installed Lucid Lynx last night from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ and found that the only thing not to work straight out of the box is to play DVD's.

 

The Totem Movie Player opens and i get the following error:

 

An error occurred

The playback of this movie requires a DVD

source plugin which is not installed.

 

I should know by now where to obtain the necessary plugin but would someone be kind enough to refresh my memory please. Thanks

you need to enable all the repositories in Synaptic that are disabled (universe, multiverse) and also add the Medibuntu repository

 

http://medibuntu.org/

 

and install the package libdvdcss

I did eventually get around to enabling all the repositories in Synaptic and medibuntu. I also installed restricted extras, + libdvdcss2.

 

I can now watch all my favourite dvd's whenever i choose. Cheers!

Or, you could just go to the Ubuntu Software Center in your Favorites, look in Sound/Video and install VLC. It works right from the start, not constantly needing something else like MoviePlayer.
