+kaffeine for Debian
+The Gstreamer support is experimental and has been disabled.
+Due to patents problems, the Lame Mp3 encoding plugin isn't available.
+CSS issue
+CSS is sold by the DVD industry as a "copy protection", though it's more of a
+"view protection" as it makes DVDs unviewable with unlicensed players. To play
+these DVDs, a library is needed to decode them, libdvdcss. Due to possible
+legal issues, Debian cannot distribute libdvdcss, but it is available on other
+places on the internet. If it is legal in your country to use css, you can run
+ /usr/share/doc/kaffeine/
+at any time to download and install it.
+Thanks to Mikael Hedin <> for the script.
+Region issue
+With a brand new DVD drive, it is necessary to set (at least once) the
+region/zone setting, allowing it to decrypt the DVD's sold in this geographical
+zone. Be careful, hardware vendors often limit the number of such
+modifications. You can use regionset utility to achieve this.
