I tried to open a dvd movie with k3b but is says to install libdvdcss to get DVD video decryption support. However I downloaded the libdvdcss-1.3.99 and installed it without error messages. Any ideas why it doesn't work?
I use Debian Jessie.
I downloaded and unpacked libdvdcss-1.3.99.tar.bz2
apt-get install libdvdread4 (showed I had it already installed)
# make install
# make clean
I opened k3b again but it said I need to install libdvdcss.
Finally I opened open synaptic package manager and I tried to look for libdvdcss and I found libdvdcss2 and I marked it for installation. I installed that one and after that k3b worked. However it gave me the message that I still need to install transcode. I installed it in synaptic manager and reopened k3b but got same message. What to do now?
Thanks for the correction... I didn't install with apt-get install because when I tried I actually typed libdvdcss and didn't work so I went to synaptic manager when libdvdcss2 was listed so I installed it.
Now since you mentioned it, I went and uninstalled transcode from synaptic manager then reinstalled it with apt-get. Guess what? It actually works now with k3b. Thanks, both issues solved
