How to play a DVD on Fedora 25 with libdvdcss. John Cartwright February 9, 2017 1 Comment Playing a DVD on Fedora 25 is not too difficult. I already had the extra repositories added to enable multimedia playback support, but I could not play a DVD. So I downloaded the libdvdcss library. http://download.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcss/1.4.0/. Then I built and installed it. darkstar% tar -xvf libdvdcss-1.4.0.tar.bz2darkstar% tar -xvf libdvdcss-1.4.0.tar.bz2 darkstar% cd libdvdcss-1.4.0darkstar% cd libdvdcss-1.4.0 darkstar% ./configuredarkstar% ./configure darkstar% makedarkstar% make [root@darkstar libdvdcss-1.4.0]# make install[[email protected] Then I had to add the /usr/local/bin directory to the ld.so.conf file in /etc. [root@darkstar etc]# cat ld.so.conf include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf /usr/local/lib[[email protected] Then run the ldconfig command to tell the system about the changes. [root@darkstar etc]# ldconfig[[email protected] Then DVD playback should work fine on your Fedora system. This will also be true for an Ubuntu system. Install the ubuntu-restricted-extras package and then follow the steps above to get encrypted DVD playback working.
