In this HOWTO, we consider you already have a little knowledge about Linux, and you
know how to use a DVD. If not, good howtos can be found on the Linux Documentation

There are different packages because vlc has "plugins" which provide features
but also enlarge the executable and require external libs.

<heading>What is this DVD device you keep talking about</heading>
<p>
This is a file which is "linked" somehow to your dvd device.

<sect3>
<heading>Linux users</heading>
<p>
Usually, you dvd device is /dev/hd? (if you have an ide drive).
For instance, if you DVD player is master on the second IDE device,
it will be /dev/hdc.
</p>
<p>
It is very useful to create a symlink to this file, called /dev/dvd.
To do this, as root, type (if your dvd device is /dev/hdc for example) :
<verb>
ln -s /dev/hdc /dev/dvd
</verb>
Also make sure you have read AND write permission to the device
(otherwise dvd decryption won't work).

Under BeOS, the dvd device looks like
