Rocky's #1 Favorite Media Player: VLC Media Player

I love VLC media player; it uses the "libdvdcss DVD decryption library" to Playback your encrypted DVD Movies. On Windows and Mac OSX this Library is Installed with VLC Media Player. But on Linux you Must Install it Separately, the easiest way to Do this is by Installing "libdvdread4" from your Distro's Software Center.

Or by typing this Command in the Unix/Linux Terminal:

Command Entered into the "MATE Terminal 1.8.1"














Then Hit "Enter", You'll be Prompted for your Admin "Super User" Password, It won't show the password; just type it then hit "Enter" again.

VLC Media Player also can Play Every format of media file; and it has been said that if VLC Media Player can't Playback the Media File, Nothing can. VLC Media Player can Even Playback  DVD Video Disc Backups (.iso), as if it was an actual Media File.
