DVD in Fedora 8

Man, what a long time since I’ve blogged. So I own all the software for DVDs on my computer. I had to make it work in Linux.

I googled around on how to do this and got 8 million different answers. I kept seeing this

Error: Missing Dependency: libx264.so.56 is needed by package ffmpeg-libs

error. So finally, I found this link on Fedoraforum.org which showed that someone had figured out they needed to issue a

yum remove x264

in order to remove the offending “Error” generated by yum. This remove all of my problems and the final “yum install” whatever software I wanted command resulted in the ability to playback DVDs.
