    You need to install libdvdcss. First you have to go to easyurpmi and follow the instructions to setup the various main, contrib, updates and plf repos. After that start the GUI software manager and search for libdvdcss, then select it for installation.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
