Enable Encrypted DVD Playback in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat
Ubuntu doesn’t support the playback of encrypted DVDs and you need to apply the following steps to achieve this. It should work on both Maverick Meerkat as well as Lucid Lynx
To play DVDs, you also need to install libdvdcss by opening a terminal and entering the following in addition to installing the restricted extras package:
sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2
You might also want to install restricted extras to allow support for other restricted formats.
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
After these steps, you should be able to use any media player like Totem or VLC to play the restricted or encrypted DVDs in Ubuntu.
