The others (mplayer, xine, etc) can play unencrypted dvds if you
install libdvdread which is free. To play css encrypted dvds you need
to also install libdvdcss (non-free).

In what sense is libdvdcss non-free?

In the sense that a US or EU citizen can be arrested for posessing or
using it, or in the US even giving a URL to it.

Sounds like it is not libdvdcss that is not-free, but the residents of the US or EU. But then again, I am just stating the obvious...
