DVD problem: Totem cannot find libdvdcss


I'm trying to set up DVD playability on my new Debian laptop. I've installed totem and totem-xine, and after opening totem with a DVD in my drive (Apocalypse Now Redux), totem informed me that the DVD was encrypted and I probably don't have libdvdcss. So, after finding it was not in the default Debian repositories, I Googled it, found the site, downloaded the source, and compiled it (./configure, make, make install). I go back to totem, and it says it still cannot find libdvdcss. How can I resolve this?

Strange I have libdvdcss .
Code:
apt-cache search libdvdcss
libdvdcss2 - Simple foundation for reading DVDs - runtime libraries
libdvdcss2-dev - Simple foundation for reading DVDs - devel files
libdvdread3 - Simple foundation for reading DVDs
libdvdread3-dev - Simple foundation for reading DVDs
You might have tried "libdvdcss" not "libdvdcss2" also you will probably need "libdvdread3" if it's not installed already.
Hope this helps

Another thing you want to do is reinstall Totem, so it can find the new lib. Go to synaptic manager and find Totem, click on it and choose "reinstall" Then you might have to restart X by loggin out and ctrl-alt-backspace back in

It says libdvdcss2 is referred to by libdvdread3, but it's not in my repositories. I'm using the standard repositories:

Code:
#deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ sarge main
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ sarge main

deb http://security.debian.org/ sarge/updates main
What repositories should I add for it?
