Ubuntu 12.04 DVD Playback


For some reason the encrypted library for playing back DVDs (libdvdcss) is not install as part of apt-get and therefore must be done manually.


Download the library and install DVD library:
sudo apt-get install libdvdread4

Then run the install script for the decryption library:
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh


Very easy to setup once you know how.
