A mailing-list has been set up for support and discussion about
libdvdcss. Its address is :

   <libdvdcss videolan org>

To subscribe, send a mail to <listar videolan org> with the following
words in the mail body :

   subscribe libdvdcss

To unsubscribe, do the same with the words :

   unsubscribe libdvdcss

When reporting bugs, try to be as precise as possible (which OS, which
distribution, what plugins you were trying, and so on).


The VideoLAN web site at http://www.videolan.org/ is a good start for
information about MPEG and DVD playing. Have a look at the documentation
section, as well as the bookmarks.
