I still have to open the dvd on a windows machine, in this case XP, go to its .dvdcss directory copy the key for the DVD
c:\Documents and Settings\......\.dvdcss\<name_of_dvd>\<key_data>
and put it into
on the BSD machine for it to unscramble. All of the players will work with that. None of them will work without the key from the windows machine. Anyone have info on that? Thanks.
I'm sure that some of you have been into DVD's for years. I just recently started looking into it. I've read about what CSS is and how it works with the hardware etc. I thought that libdvdcss would generate the keys necessary to play a DVD without having to get at least one of the keys from a "licensed" OS - hardware device. What am I missing here?
