Libdvdcss2 has no effect on VLC

Post by ksquared » Thu Feb 08, 2018 10:41 pm

Hi!

So I keep "RCE Region Protection Suspected" from VLC. I installed libdvdcss2, however, this seems to have no effect: even after several reinstalls and reboots, it seems as if I get the same error no matter what I do.

I also tried to install Handbrake, however, I can't select a title even though it scans 30 items or so when it starts.

I don't have any other way of watching DVD's and I'm NOT going to buy a specialized player, so I really appreciate any help on this.

I would list my troubleshooting steps, but they've been totally ineffectual so I don't think there is much reason to.

Thanks in advance!
