Missing plugins for Kaffeine

I cannot play DVD movies with Kaffeine. The message says that I am missing plugins. Can anyone tell me which plugins are required? Many thanks.

You need libdvdcss on all distributions to be able to watch coded dvd's

Not needed for dvd, but for other multimediaformats is w32codec

If you run opensuse, you should replace both xinelib and kaffeine with libxine1 and kaffeine from the packman distribution. See for more details about packman.

Re: Missing plugins for Kaffeine

Another option is to go with KPlayer + MPlayer + libdvdcss. This works quite well, and you will very rarely if ever need the w32codecs stuff. MPlayer supports most codecs natively or through ffmpeg.
