Enable DVD Playback

Install the required software library to play commercial DVDs in Zorin OS.

Most commercial DVDs are encrypted with CSS (the Content Scramble System), which attempts to restrict the software that can play a DVD. You can enable the playback of commercial DVDs in Zorin OS by installing a third-party software library called libdvdcss.

To install libdvdcss, please open the Terminal (Zorin Menu → Utilities → Terminal), enter the two commands listed below, and follow the on-screen instructions:

sudo apt install libdvd-pkg
sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

Afterward, you should be able to play DVDs using the default Videos app in Zorin OS.
