InterVideo Announces CSS-Compliant Software DVD Player For Linux

April 05, 2020 | InterVideo, Inc. has announced that it will release a software DVD player/decoder for the Linux operating system, called LinDVD. Linux DVD will allow users to playback DVD movies, interactive DVD titles, and Video CDs. The decoder/player includes integrated MPEG-1 & 2 playback, a VCD 2.0 player, and SVCD playback. A full multi-channel Dolby Digital audio decoder will also be included. InterVideo has a long-standing Content Scrambling System (CSS) license, enabling it to produce and market legal DVD player/decoder software. The lack of DVD solutions for Linux have been well-publicized recently, including the widely reported case of programmers who reverse-engineered DVD's CSS with the infamous DeCSS, resulting in lawsuits from the DVD industry against the engineers and Web site owners who published the DeCSS code.
