dvd playback

Hey all,

I'm having some trouble playing dvd's. Totem Player says the data is encrypted and won't play it; mplayer does play it, I get the sound, but the picture is completely distorted. From what I've been able to gather, I need 'libdvdcss' for the encryption, but this doesn't come with the 7-CD mdk 9.2 I'm using. Doe anyone know where I can find this library for d/l? Any other tips are welcome, too.
