Exclamation DVD's?


I have purchased a movie in DVD. The problem is that the DVD is locked so as it to be viewable only in TV DVD's.

Is there a way to watch this movie in Linux?

you need libdvdcss to access the encrypted bits (i don't really understand this but it works)

go to http://rpm.pbone.net

type in libdvdcss and hit search
find the mandrake 9.2 version, download and install

then go back and have a go with xine
