John, that doesn't make any difference, actually. It's just as bad
with accelerated rendering as without.

It also, some of the time,  complains about being unable to open
the disc, or a complaint for every file. sometimes not. but I can
open each file fine in other tools, because the disk is mounted.

So, I'm wondering if there's something wrong with the libdvdcss from nux.
In the past I've always used the one from, er, I don't remember which
repo, but it was an older repo where the only thing still there was

I'm just now in the process of building 1.3.99 from videolan.org, so
we'll see.
