This guide will tell you how to enable DVD playback in ubuntu (linux) system.
DVD playback is not a feature that is installed by default due to license restrictions. This will show you how to install DVD playback capability on your Ubuntu linux machine.

Note: In some parts of the world using DVD playback is not legal.
Installing DVD playback is Very Easy. You’ll need to install the Seveas Repository before you’ll have access to it

First you need to edit your /etc/apt/sources.list using the following command
sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list
and enter the following sourcelist save the file and exit

deb http://mirror.ubuntulinux.nl edgy-seveas all
deb-src http://mirror.ubuntulinux.nl edgy-seveas all

Now you need to copy the key using the following command
wget http://mirror.ubuntulinux.nl/1135D466.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

Update your source list using the following command

sudo apt-get update

Install libdvdcss2 using the following command

sudo aptitude install libdvdcss2

or, if you prefer not to install Seveas repository you can run the following command to automatically download and install the appropriate files

sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/./install-css.sh

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
