During a recent fresh install of Fedora 35 I had trouble finding believable documentation on how to set it up to play DVDs. So here is a brief guide using vlc as a player.
The key component, libdvdcss, is not provided by the main Fedora repositories so the process is broken down into the following stages:-
- Add the required repositories
- Install libdvdcss
- Install a player of your choice
Add the required repositories
sudo dnf install rpmfusion-free-release rpmfusion-free-release-tainted
sudo dnf install libdvdcss
Install a player of your choice
I use vlc.
sudo dnf install vlc
… and you are finished.
