Ubuntu – How to play DVDs in Ubuntu 16.04?


Ubuntu is unable to play DVDs.
I used regionset to change the region.
libdvdcss (the newest version) is installed.
I enabled the option "No DVD menus" in VLC, and it doesn't work.

What should I do?

Best Answer

On Ubuntu 16.04 type in the terminal

sudo apt-get install libdvd-pkg

After installing libdvd-pkg you must run this command

sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

This should allow DVD Playback

If you're still having trouble, most likely the region of your device is not set properly (or at all). Install regionset by typing

sudo apt-get install regionset

and then run
