When I try to play video DVDs on Ubuntu 11.10 always get this error message: "Could not read DVD. This may be because the DVD is encrypted and a DVD decryption library is not installed." I tried to solve this with adding restricted-extras and libdvdcss2. But i still get this message. Any ideas to fix that?
Hello I have researched websites with no success. I am attempting to install both the all-20110131.tar.bz2 to play Multimedia and libdvdcss2 to rip dvd''s. I found a site for the all-20110131.tar.bz2 and performed the instructions below and now get a message that it needs MPEG2 plugins. What is this why so hard? I do want to learn and use Linux. For libdvdcss2 for ripping I could also use help.
I am trying to figure out what is happening. I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on an external hard drive and tested it on two different machines for playing DVD. I use the same rented DVD from the neighbourhood video store.
i have in the past got encripted dvds to play,,,bur for some reason, i cannot now....i have used the 2 popular repositories, and i install everythihng...but everytime i try to get dvds to play, say encripted....i can remember last time i got this working,,it was onlly about 3 entries into the terminal...anyonen helpme....
thus us what i just installed, no success.
I am currently trying to create a shell interface for mplayer2 specifically for DVD playback. The (apparently unsolvable) problem is that the audio has gaps at the chapter marks on some DVDs during playback in dvdnav:// mode, and I get "ac-tex damaged" messages that I don't get in dvd:// mode (MacPorts-mplayer1 in Mac OS X has the same problem).
