I couldn't update my system today, because of dependency problems with libdvdcss, I removed libdvdcss and it's dependency libdvdcss2. Update was successfull after that but now I can't install libdvdcss back, because it's not in the repositories.

From rpmfind.net link:

libdvdcss is a simple library designed for accessing DVDs as a block device without having to bother about the decryption.

What has happened?

Do I lose the ability to play dvd's for some time or have they changed something so it comes from somewhere else?

EDIT: It seems that I originally installed it with yum from the atrpms repository following this guide. I thought it should have been standard for rpmfusion but it didn't come from there.

    yum search libdvdcss? You can install libdvdcss from source if you have to. But there should be third party packages available for fedora if they are not available in the official repositories. – Faheem Mitha Aug 30 '14 at 6:15
  • @FaheemMitha My understanding is that it came with/from rpmfusion. I installed it with yum a while back. – somethingSomething Aug 30 '14 at 6:20

    Well, do a search online. If necessary, you could build your own rpm using older rpm packaging. See the source tarballs at videolan.org/developers/libdvdcss.html – Faheem Mitha Aug 30 '14 at 6:59

    It's available from atrpms.net – garethTheRed Aug 30 '14 at 10:52

I answered my own question with:

Update was successfull after that but now I can't install libdvdcss back, because it's not in the repositories.

What has happened?

Follow the directions on this site for installing audio, video and dvd support on your Fedora.


Exerpt from http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f16.html for installing libdvdcss on Fedora:

DVD Playback - The libdvdcss is required for DVD playback. Due to non-technical reasons, the package does not exist in the RPMFusion repository. For only this package an alternate repository will be used.

Please use the ATrpms Repository:

[mirandam@charon Download]$ wget http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/files/atrpms.repo
[mirandam@charon Download]$ sudo cp ./atrpms.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/atrpms.repo
[mirandam@charon Download]$ sudo rpm --import http://packages.atrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms

To install the package:

[mirandam@charon ~]$ sudo yum --enablerepo=atrpms install libdvdcss

NOTE ATrpms may conflict with RPMFusion hence it is kept disabled. Previously the Livna Repository was used for this however Livna has been unreliable.

UPDATE #1

I've been downloading this package from rpmfind since this stopped working, hope it can assist anyone in the future.(and also this one: libdvdread)

  • This is not working anymore, don't know if it will again. – somethingSomething Feb 15 '15 at 9:31

I managed to just clone the project from the repository, from the project page: http://www.videolan.org/developers/libdvdcss.html - copying an "autogen.sh" file from some other project, as it seens to be missing, then running autogen.sh --prefix=/usr; make; sudo make install.

Fedora's mplayer could them see and reproduce a DVD - but not the system-installed VLC.
