debian wont play a video DVD


This is the first time I've installed Debian.
It's 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP Sun May 6 05:12:07 UTC 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I've got sound but Debian won't play my video DVDs.
Is there a simple fix for this problem ?

What app are you trying to play a DVD with?


For starters:
add the deb-multimedia.org repo to your sources.list and install the libdvdcss2 package.

MultimediaCodecs - Debian Wiki - http://wiki.debian.org/MultimediaCodecs
