Ubuntu – Could not read dvd despite having restricted extras


I still can't seem to play movie DVDs on my Ubuntu 11.10 even after installing restricted extras and after trying this

This[a] is the error message that I get with movie player.
VLC doesn't play the DVD either.

What gives

[a]Could not read DVD. This may be because the DVD is encrypted and a DVD decryption library is not installed.

Best Answer

Open the Terminal under Applications > Accessories > Terminal and run the following commands:

sudo apt-get install libdvdnav4 libdvdread4 gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly

sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
