libdvd drivers for French WebTV

I am trying to get my French Web TV to work under Mandriva 2010.1 . I have installed VLC but the directs me to a Mandriva page stating that I need the following drivers:

urpmi libdvdplay0 wxvlc vlc-plugin-a52 vlc-plugin-ogg vlc-plugin-mad libmatroska0



I have successfully downloaded the libdvdcss2 driver but not the first one. When I try to urpmi it I am told that it doesn't exist.

Does anyone have an idea as to where I should go from here?

Thanks in advance,

Tony Littlejohn

If you are looking for the libdvdplay0 rpm package, you can search for it on RPM-Find. My search returned this page.

Before using this package, you should read this VideoLAN Web page.
