Decrypting CSS

gNewSense comes with a script that installs libdvdcss. This will enable DVD playback.

Ensure that you have an active internet connection. Then, run this command:

sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/install-css.sh

Enter your password when prompted. You will also need to install Gstreamer's ugly set of plugins:

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly

Once completed, you should be able to play DVDs.

Multimedia Player

The default multimedia player in gNewSense is Totem with Gstreamer back-end. However, it may not display DVD menus properly.

To have a more thorough DVD compatibility, you should install Totem with the Xine engine:

sudo apt-get install totem-xine

You run it either by clicking on the Totem (Xine) in the Applications > Sound & Video menu or by entering totem-xine after hitting Alt+F2. Then, choose the Play Disc option in the Movie menu.
