Encrypted DVD Playback in Fedora 26

Photo in a matrix style of a DVD

Playing a DVD on Fedora 26 is not too difficult. Once the libdvdcss libraries are installed.

visit http://download.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcss/ and download the newest tar.bz2 packageĀ  e.g. 1.4.0

$ tar -xvf libdvdcss-1.4.0.tar.bz2
$ cd libdvdcss-1.4.0
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

 

I had to add the following line to my /etc/ld.so.conf

/usr/local/lib

 

then a quick

sudo ldconfig

and DVD playback should be working again
