20.04.1 and libdvdcss

So it's been a couple of Ubuntu revisions(Since at least 18.04 ...?!) that libdvdcss has been unavailable/broken and I see this still has not changed as of today as I am still getting libdvdcss.so.2 library errors when trying to backup some of my DVDs.

Hence is this normal with 20.04.1 out that the problem is still around and is there an official work around for it?

You might try -

sudo apt install libdvd-pkg followed by -
sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

This is a replacement install of libdvdcss.


These steps are also detailed in Welcome :grinning:
