You want vlc-1.1.13-i486-1alien.txz.
To install it, as root, run:
Code:
installpkg vlc-1.1.13-i486-1alien.txz

Slackbuild for libdvdcss.
Get both the source and the Slackbuild from that link and save them to your Downloads folder. Then do something like the following
Code:
cd ~/Downloads
tar -xvf libdvdcss.tar.gz
mv libdvdcss-1. (*hit tab for autocomplete*) libdvdcss
su
sh libdvdcss.Slackbuild
installpkg /tmp/libdvdcss-1 (*hit tab for autocomplete*)
For Erik's VLC package, grab the vlc-blah-blah.txz package out either pkg or pkg64 depending on your computers architecture. Then navigate to where you saved the package and run (as root)
Code:
installpkg vlc-blahblah.txz
That should be all you need to play dvds in Xine or VLC. Slackware comes with most Multimedia codecs out of the box.
What is not right? see my output

$ mv libdvdcss-1. libdvdcss
mv: cannot stat `libdvdcss-1.': No such file or directory

I was writing that post from memory and thus I haven't used the full and correct file names (hence the *hit tab for autocomplete* part). You want to move the libdvdcss source archive into the folder you created when you uncompressed the slackbuild (should be ~/Downloads/libdvdcss ).
The full command is
Code:
mv libdvdcss-1.2.11.tar.bz2 libdvdcss
cd libdvdcss
su
sh libdvdcss.Slackbuild
That will create a libdvdcss slackware package in your /tmp directory which you can install with the installpkg command.
