libdvdcss 1.4.0 Description:
libdvdcss is an open source, simple and unique library software designed from the ground up to be used on DVD playback applications for unscrambling and accessing CSS-encrypted DVD content without having to pay for expensive products or bother about the decryption process. The library is portable, as it is currently supported on a wide range of operating system, including GNU/Linux, BSD (FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, BSD/OS), BeOS, Solaris, HP-UX, Microsoft Windows (95/98, NT/2000, XP), and Mac OS X. It also offers simplicity, as it only includes seven functions, and freedom, which means that it can only be used by free software products. In addition, it works better than most similar projects, simply because it doesn't require the user to set the region of his or her DVD drive.
