Just fot information

I did not even know about DVD-multimedia.I have always installed libdvdread, libdvdnav, liddvdcss2, I needed to install
Libdvdnav-dev on a non debian distribution
Once think it was Manjaro when I was evaluating that distribution.

On ubuntu they have libdvd-pkg which I thought Debian would also have on the repo nope.

This package is available in the Debian repos. You just need to edit your apt sources accordingly.
Then you could have installed this package using apt instead of downloading and installing the package manually.

Really what is the URl cause for this Debian repo. Must be different than the repo URLs the system has by default cause all are checked.

Contrib needs to be enabled to get that package, and I think it references packages in non-free, so that also needs to be enabled. These are not enabled by default on Debian which ships a fully libre distro with the ability to easily enable for non-free packages.

Code:
apt-cache showpkg libdvd-pkg
Package: libdvd-pkg
Versions: 
1.4.2-1-1 (/var/lib/apt/lists/deb.debian.org_debian_dists_buster_contrib_binary-amd64_Packages) (/var/lib/dpkg/status)
 Description Language: 
                 File: /var/lib/apt/lists/deb.debian.org_debian_dists_buster_contrib_binary-amd64_Packages
                  MD5: 69ffcc3dc82cec634c830f1c06c90f5e
 Description Language: en
                 File: /var/lib/apt/lists/deb.debian.org_debian_dists_buster_contrib_i18n_Translation-en
                  MD5: 69ffcc3dc82cec634c830f1c06c90f5e


Reverse Depends: 
  libdvdcss-dev,libdvd-pkg
