DVD unreadable_.VOB files


Hi,
I would like to look matrix trilogy !!!
i had installed smplayer and vlc
I can't read the DVDs.
By looking the files, I see that movies' files have a .vob extension ???
and i think that these kind of extension isn't supported by both sotwares.
True ?
what can I do ?

at first you can try to copy those file into your hdd (to check if that works). If you cannot copy those files - DVD is unreadable - your DVD is useless.
by the way, VLC should be able to play vob files too, or the DVD itself.

the Matrix was the first DVD I owned, and the First I played on Linux

back then it was a complicated affair
I has to mount the dvd
create two fifos , one for the vid stream and the other for audio.
I then demuxed the vob splitting the streams outputting to the appropriate fifo
then decrypt the vid stream using the "first illegal prime" and remuxing the descrambled video with the audio and finally piping that to player ( xine back then )

Thankfully it is much simpler now
you will need to install libdecss , vlc should then be able play straight from the dvd disk in your dvd drive

in all honesty I'm surprised this does not work "out of the box"

what do you see with this
Code:
apt list libdvdnav4 libdvdcss2

it might be libdvdcss

Code:
apt list | grep libdvd
that should bring up a few things
look for libdvdcss
if it has installed next to it you *should* be able to play dvds

ok I think I understand now

Code:
sudo apt install libdvd-pkg
# Enable automatic upgrades for libdvdcss2?
# accept with Yes when you are asked
sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg
# again accept with yes
then you should be able to play dvd disks with VLC

I can verify this right now but Bodhi is Ubuntu based and BL5.0 is Ubuntu 18.04:

How to Play DVD in Ubuntu 18.04, 16.04 and 14.04

Seems FireRat posted the same info at about the same time.

It brought back fond memories of me on Linux From Scratch writing a script to automate all that fifo demux undecss remux play stuff

The illegal prime was the best part, people were selling T-Shirts with the src code or that prime printed on them.

when a problem is resolved, another one comes :
i've a problem with your illegal prime link.
I think that comes from lightweight midori web browser
And I don't want to install huge web browser as firefox or chromium

Midori has its limitations. We have a more updated version of midori in our testing repo. This new version will open that site, but at first you get a security unknown page. If you look at that midori error page closely there is a link you can click and an option to "trust this site".

Note: you don't have to add our testing repo to install midori you can download the deb file and install it that way.

Also note the updated midori is a work in progress and some features are missing. In theory tho it should work with more web sites. No version of midori is really full featured and fully functional on all web sites. It is currently note as functional as Firefox, Chrome, Opera, ...

ahh, sorry about that

it was just a slice of history
it has the prime number behind a javascript button
some history on who found that number, and a little perl script that fetches the number, converts it to binary and then decompresses it ready for you to compile.

You don't need it for anything these days, it is just a bit of fun.
But that is the exact page I used all those years ago, I was surprised it was still up.


Edit
actually the best thing about it was it added to "The Matrix" Experience
what with all the getting secret hacking codes to play the hacking film
