Then, as I said, I suggest you have a more precise look at the Drip
source code and see how exactly it uses libdvdcss. My understanding is
that it does not at all. (I hope I got the wording right this time)

Linking drip with libdvdcss is utterly useless since drip does not
use any libdvdcss function.

Grmbl, please read carefully my first message in this thread. Drip
has nothing to do with libdvdcss, only libdvdread uses libdvdcss.
