totem cant find libdvdcss?


hi all, i'm installing ubuntu 7.04 on a friends laptop. I'm having a problem getting dvd playback working... doesn't usually cause problems but this one is strange.

I open up totem and try playing a dvd but get the following message,
Quote:
The source seems encrypted, and can't be read. Are you trying to play an encrypted DVD without libdvdcss?
I have libdvdcss2 installed to the latest version (1.2.9). Also have libdvdread3 (0.9.7), libdvdnav4 (0.1.10-0.1), totem-xine, medibuntu repositories installed and have even tried easyubuntu which i don't normally find i need.

Get a lot of this output string when I open a dvd from a terminal in totem.
Quote:
*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:1631 ***
*** for pgcit->pgci_srp[i].unknown1 == 0 ***
Any ideas? I've looked every where but am at a loss.

I've always found mplayer much easier to work with. gxine is also a better choice.

I have everything that [URL="http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_F...ack_capability"] tells you to install.

I've tried gxine and get the same error, although worded in a different way!

just my here, but gxine is not the best application out there for audio. Having tried it on several machines and distros, have never really gotten it to work properly. I prefer mplayer. Gxine will skip, lose files that you know for a fact are there and all of that. Might suggest experimenting around.

I really like VLC... Xine is OK to. I don't care for Totem, Mplayer or gxine. I have Totem and Mplayer for Firefox plugins, but thats about it.

cootetom, I have no idea why you're not able to play DVD's. I've followed the instructions on that link many, many times, and never had a problem..

Ditto

I am having *exactly* the same issue. Using Cassandra 3.0 (Mint). Works fine on my laptop - but the same OS on my desktop (a new Acer) I get the same messages. Question: could the problem be related to hardware in some way? Any other ideas? I don't think the player we choose is the issue.
