“fra-gi-le”…must be Italian.

by gorthx

Totem, the default video player that comes with Ubuntu, was telling me I didn’t have the right plugins to play videos.

These steps got me partly there (I could see the DVD menu at least):

cd /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/
./install-css.sh
sudo ./install-css.sh #grrr...
sudo apt-get install totem-xine

But then I got a message about needing libdvdcss when I tried to play the video (even though, according to my package manager, it was already installed). So I downloaded the package from here:
http://packages.medibuntu.org/pool/free/libd/libdvdcss/
and re-installed it. :P

…and I’m now watching “A Christmas Story“. While I sew. All is right with the world.
