Easy Debian DVD

If you think you can play dvd on plain Debian just by inserting dvd in the tray, you are wrong. But fortunately we can install needed library easily. I did the steps described on this page.

1. Add these two line into “/etc/apt/source.list”.

deb http://download.videolan.org/pub/debian/stable/ /
deb-src http://download.videolan.org/pub/debian/stable/ /

2. Add apt-key for this repository by doing this:

wget -O - http://download.videolan.org/pub/debian/videolan-apt.asc|sudo apt-key add -

3. Update the apt.

sudo apt-get update

4. Install libdvdcss2.

sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2

5. That’s it! Now you can play dvd with your favorite video player.
