Well, whoever wrote that simply forgot about libdvdcss. You only
need it if you want to play commercial DVDs.
Are you sure?
AFAICT packman has 1.4.0 from four years ago. VLC has 1.4.2 from 6
months ago. ??
Packman doesn't have the package, I just looked.
Yes, but it is not published. Try to find it here, for instance:
Then, if you look again at the packman build servive, "repositories" tab:
you notice that publishing is disabled.
I don't know about repository names. What I do
know is that yast says
the libdvdcss2 I have installed has a URL of
So specifically, it appears to me that all the required packages ARE
available from videolan as the web page says and not as you intimate.
Confussion. I did not say that videolan does not have the required
packages, but that packman doesn't.
Yes, videolan generates the package:
Telcontar:~ # rpm -qi libdvdcss2
Name : libdvdcss2
Version : 1.4.2

Summary : A library designed for accessing encrypted DVDs
libdvdcss is a simple library designed for accessing DVDs like a block
device without having to bother about the decryption.
Distribution: SuSE / Leap_15.2
It has been generated by the videolan project, yes, but I have it
downloaded from http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/openSUSE_Leap_15.2/
. It is
a fact, I don't have the videolan repo in my list.
To know what repository it was actually installed from, a different
double query is needed:
Telcontar:~ # zypper se --details libdvdcss
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
S | Name | Type | Version | Arch | Repository
| libdvdcss | srcpackage | 1.4.2-1.3 | noarch | Libdvdcss Repository
| libdvdcss-debugsource | package | 1.4.2-1.3 | x86_64 | Libdvdcss Repository
| libdvdcss-devel | package | 1.4.2-1.3 | x86_64 | Libdvdcss Repository
i+ | libdvdcss2 | package | 1.4.2-1.3 | x86_64 | Libdvdcss Repository
| libdvdcss2-debuginfo | package | 1.4.2-1.3 | x86_64 | Libdvdcss Repository
Telcontar:~ # zypper lr --details | grep Libdvdcss
32 | opensuse-guide.org-repo | Libdvdcss Repository | Yes |
(r ) Yes | Yes | 99 | rpm-md |
First query says that I have installed "libdvdcss2" from repo "Libdvdcss
Repository", and the second says the URL for "Libdvdcss Repository" is
