The VideoLAN team is proud to announce version 0.0.1 of libdvdcss.
libdvdcss is the cross-platform library used by vlc, the VideoLAN
Client, to access DVDs with transparent CSS decryption. It is the first
library based on the vlc codebase, but others are planned.
* Cross-platform. Works under Linux, BSD, Windows, BeOS.
* Simple. No useless calls, DVD authentication and CSS decryption is
done in a completely transparent way. Also, the API only has 7 exported
functions, and we hope to eventually have only 6.
* Free. Like almost all the VideoLAN codebase, it is GPLed.
The official libdvdcss page is:
The API reference can be found here, together with sample code:
You can download 0.2.80 via HTTP or FTP:
To avoid useless mailing-list forking, developers are encouraged to
use the vlc mailing-lists for discussions about libdvdcss.
