Critical

The usage and distribution of the libdvdcss library is illegal in some countries (e.g. USA). The plugin can be build and used without this library, but then CSS protected DVDs cannot be played.


Configuration

Parameter

Parameter (short) Parameter (long) Description
-C <DEV> --dvd=<DEV> use <DEV> as DVD device (default: /dev/dvd)

The command line starting VDR (i.e. in runvdr) has to be extended (replace sdX by DVDs device node):

-P'dvd -C/dev/sdX'

Other

Problems

  • Some buyed DVDs are not played, plugin segfaults && shows in logfiles "libdvdnav: ifoRead_VOBU_ADMAP vtsi failed".
  • read here: German DVDs with new copy protection
  • Solution:
    • use other versions of libdvdnav and libdvdread
      • libdvdnav_0.1.10-0.2-3.tar.gz
      • libdvdread_0.9.7-2-1.tar.gz
