Hi, I am Linux newbie and really enjoy working with it. What do I need to do in order to force Linux to play my DVD movies. What software do I need? I went through HOWTO pages on linux.com but I just cant beleive that I need to go thru more than four pages of issiuing commands in order to achieve this. Any help welcome!

Thanks a lot

The reason its hard is because the DVDs are encripted and under US law its illegal to decript them without paying lots of money to the movie industry.

Its currently not illegal here (although they are working on it).

You should be able to get eveything you need from:
