One hurdle was the libdvdcss..
There arent any 64 bit versions left i think. everyone seems to be stopping hosting libdvdcss..
The Jem Report - Hacking OpenSUSE: Heres how you can compile and install it. Didnt work for me though. got an error
warning: user sam does not exist - using root
Heres what i did instead..
Googled for libdvdcss2-1.2.8-0.pm.2.x86_64.rpm. Found it on pbone.net
The above actually didnt work... When I tried my brand spanking new U2 Vertigo DVD, Kaffeine kept complaining and VLC would just turn of.. After hours of seaching and relaxing with my guitar on my new bean bag :P... i figured it out and double checked it this time...
The latest version of libdvdcss source can be downloaded from http://download.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcss/
Right now the latest is: libdvdcss-1.2.9.tar.gz
suto root. run..
Power up VLC and enjoy!!
Kaffeine had a bright green screen and wont play dvds though.. but thats for another day...
Hello Hello... Can I please go Vertigo?!!!!!
