Getting DVD Playback to work

April 20, 2006 at 12:29 pm Leave a comment

The trouble with most Linux distro is that they don't come with right decoder. I suspect that this may be some sort of legal issue. In any case, DVD playback do not work out of the box.

Bubbaslash from htpcnews suggested the following site:

I followed the directions and downloaded all of the packages and run pkgtool. It quickly install all of the packages. Playback works now, but the video is jerky. I suspect I need the correct video card driver.
