'libdvdcss' is a cross-platform library for transparent DVD device access with on-the-fly CSS decryption. It is used by libdvdread and most DVD players such as vlc because of its portability and because it does not require your DVD drive to be region locked. It is simple (only seven functions in the API) and is intended to remain so.
