I have installed libdvdcss2, but I still get this error when trying to play DVDs:
libdvdread4 was installed by default (This is a new System76 Pangolin Performance). I ran the install-css.sh script, and it completed with no problems.
I can confirm that libdvdread4 and libdvdcss2 are installed:
[email protected]:~$ dpkg -l | grep dvdcss ii libdvdcss2 1.2.12-0.0medibuntu1 Simple foundation for reading DVDs - runtime libraries [email protected]:~$ dpkg -l | grep dvdread ii libdvdread4 4.2.0-1ubuntu3 library for reading DVDs
Here is Solutions:
We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.
The instructions on the Ubuntu Documentation site were quite right. As david6 pointed out, I simply needed to read further down the page and set the region code.
1. Install libdvdcss
(libdvdread4 came installed with the laptop.)
2. Set my region code
After making sure the universe repositories were enabled:
sudo apt-get install regionset
Before setting my region code, I read the regionset documentation at /usr/share/doc/regionset/README.
I set my region to 0, North America.
3. Fix poor playback
After setting my region code, playback was possible, but the video was very distorted. So I read further down the DVD playback page. Deleting ~/.dvdcss/ did the trick.
rm -R ~/.dvdcss/
Playback still isn’t perfect… In Totem media player, the menu is slightly distorted, and in VLC I have to disable menus entirely. But once the video is rolling, everything works fine. Thank you January and david6 for your help!
This should work:
sudo apt-get install libdvdread4 sudo sh /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
Try re-installing all DVD support:
sudo apt-get -y install libdvdcss2 libdvdnav4 libdvdread4 sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
I had the exact same problem and it was just region set all the time I followed the steps on the following site which then got it working for me 🙂 I still can’t understand why I didn’t have to use it on the last version of ubuntu but oh well at least it works and I know to look at it next time if I need to.
Use the following link for steps…
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
