I am trying to play a movie on ubuntu and it will not work. It tells me that I need to install dvd decryption. I was researching online and found out that I need to install libdvdread4, I did that. I also read that I needed to install libdvdcss, and this is where there was a problem. I ran:

sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh into the terminal and got the following:

I am wondering if there is any other way to install libdvdcss. Thanks

  • The bug is now fixed, updating and trying the script again should now work. – Mateo Oct 12 '13 at 19:48

The script was trying to pull a package from the Medibuntu Project, which has been discontinued.

You can try installing libdvdcss from Videolan's website instead.

http://packages.medibuntu.org is gone. The packages have been removed because there was no one to maintain them. Videolan still maintains these files in deb packaging. You can find libdvdcss2 here http://download.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcss/1.2.10/deb/. You will need to search for the rest but they are there
