My company is in a position where we need to distribute VLC on our Ubuntu 14.04 image. How can I install VLC without libdvdcss, or, how can I remove the libdvdcss bits?
There's nothing to remove, the only connection between
vlc packages and
libdvdcss2 is that
libdvdcss2 (which is a very weak dependency — made necessary by the fact that the standard repositories don't carry
libdvdcss2). It's perfectly possible to install
libdvdcss2 as is.
