    how to play dvd with the given media players?!


    Hi everyone,

    I finally was able to successfully install Mandrake LInux 10.1 in my laptop. I am really excited about trying this distro.
    I tried to play dvd from the given media player softwares but it said that i don't have enough resources...do I have to download some other softwares from the internet to be able to see dvd movies using Linux?! please let me know what can be done.

    Thanks a million

    there should be mplayer and xine rpms given in your distro cds. Otherwise you can download them from http://mplayerhq.hu/homepage/index.html and http://xinehq.de/ .
    these two are the best choices when it comes to watching videos in Linux. You may also use Videolan or vlc.

    Make sure to setup URPMI using the instructions here:
    http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/
    After that, you have to install libdvdcss. You should be able to use this command, if you've setup URPMI correctly

    Code:
    urpmi libdvdcss
    Good Luck!
