Hello, all!

I just installed Pardus, and I really like it. My main question is how do I play back dvd movies. Looks like the dvd codecs are installed, but the movie still won't play.

Is there a way to play encrypted dvds in Pardus?

Thanks for the help!

Pardus will play encrypted DVDs "out of the box". What program are you using for playback?

I'm using Kaffeine. Looks like it's the default. I also tried MPlayer, but no luck. I get a message that says something about my dvd being crypted and that in my country I may or may not be able to play dvds.

When I get back to my machine, I'll try to get a screenshot of the message.

I thought it was supposed to work, but when it didn't I thought maybe I misunderstood.

Thanks so much for your reply, roverrat.

Respectfully,

Let us know.  I'll have to check the packages, but I'll have to post some things to check.

Hi, guys!

I'll try to post a screen shot here to show you what I'm talking about.

Thanks for your help.

Anybody have any ideas, or have seen this message before?  Huh?

What happens when you click "OK"?

Check that you have the package libdvdcss installed. It's the one that does the decrypting.

Okay, guys...

I at least got it to play.

Nothing happens when I click "OK." The little box just goes away and Kaffeine just sits there. But if I hit play again it will play.   Shocked  Now if I press stop and play again, it tells me that the file at /media/hdd can't be found. Then I have to quit Kaffeine and restart it, go through the same thing as mentioned above, and it will play again. It's a little quirky, but at least it's playing, so I'm cool with that.

Thanks for your help!

Respectfully,

David
