Can pureos play comercial dvd's at all?

I have tried play dvd’s with vlc… no succes.
then installed libdvdcss… still no succes.

then i gave up u have tried other dvd players from software manager.
they all can’t play the dvd.

Have this all to do with pureos? is it unable to play commercial dvd’s?

Its a codec thing, but I’m not sure which. You might have to do some web searching to find what you need.

I once managed to play a DVD using the NON-FREE :crying_cat_face: package libdvdcss2 from https://deb-multimedia.org/. I would recommend to disable the extra repository again afterwards, to prevent replacing many other programs already in PureOS with those versions from deb-multimedia.org (or use apt pinning to prevent this).

Another alternative could be https://packages.debian.org/bullseye/libdvd-pkg
