Hi guys.  I'm new to Fedora Linux.  I installed VLC Media Player so I could watch my DVD's.  I can't watch the DVD's because I'm having the "Fedora does not have the necessary codec to play this file" error.  Is there a work around or an alternative player so I could watch DVD with Fedora 14?

Hi Eckel Andrea

You need to Install some packages to be able to play DVD on Fedora. You should install the one called libdvdcss.

Just install livna on your computer and you will have it.

When it's done, go on add/remove in libdvdcss it should be already available, install it and restart your computer.

Thank you

You probably installed an old version of the VLC media player that still doesn’t support DVD playback. The latest version at the moment is very much capable of playing back DVDs. To download the latest version of VLC media player for Fedora, go to VLC media player for Fedora. Follow the instructions on the page to download the correct version from the repository.

The majority of the VLC media player packages for Fedora can be found on RPM Fusion. For users with Fedora 22 or higher, they recommend to use the RPM Fusion for Fedora. The Fedora edition of the VLC media player can play most multimedia files especially audio CDs, DVDs, VCDs, and different streaming protocols.
