xmovie, see www.freshmeat.net claims to be able to play DVDs.  the source
is available but only the binaries have the encryption code in it.  i dont
know if it uses decss(?) or not, if its not available lemme know i can
send it to u.  available in glibc2.1 only i believe.  it crashed on both
my debian 2.1 systems but ran ok on my mandrake system(dont have a dvd to
test but the program loaded)

i emailed the author about a binary for glibc2.0 but he hasnt replied
yet(~3 weeks ago)

btw this is a software-only decoder i believe, you need a powerful(really
powerful) machine to run it on, say 450-500mhz or better.  it is
multithreaded so dual cpus really scream according to the www page. he
tested it on a dual celeron 500 i think(i run dual celeron 466)
