Bug Description

when trying to play a store bought dbd I get the message "Could not read DVD. This may be because the DVD is encrypted and a DVD decryption library is not installed."
AS an extreme newb to linux I have no idea how to remedy this.
I am running edubyntu 11.10 if that helps

You have to install libdvdcss (this may be illegal depending on where you live).
