Just installed Fedora 18 and can’t wait to watch Starship Troopers or Matrix? Well no worries here, just need to install a few packages. First we need to install libdvdnav and libdvdread which will allow us to play non-encrypted DVD’s.
$ sudo yum install libdvdread libdvdnav
To read encrypted DVD’s we need libdvdcss2, which in this case is available from atrpms.
For 32-bit systems:
For 64-bit systems:
Now we need something to play them so lets go with VLC.
$ sudo yum install vlc
That’s all we need and we are ready to start watching our favorite DVD’s.
