Hi!
Running on GhostBSD 11.1 Beta I found it's also possible to do this via pkg:

Code: Select all

sudo pkg install vlc

Code: Select all

sudo pkg install libdvdcss
Greetings :)

No offence, but I've found smplayer to be a much better media player. You should give it a try. ;)

No worries! :D

Don't forget to install smplayer-skins and smplayer-themes as well, for a better looking player. 8-)
