Fluendo, the company that's largely behind G-Streamer and produces legal audio/video codecs for Linux, has now launched its own DVD player solution for Linux. Fluendo's new DVD player software is, of course, built upon the G-Streamer framework. This Fluendo DVD player software costs about $28 USD and is fully certified and is considered a legal piece of software free of any audio/video patent issues in the US. This software also supports DVD menus, multiple angles, CSS encryption, subtitles, etc.

More information on Fluendo's DVD player for Linux can be found out in their press release. Sadly, there is no Blu-ray Player for Linux, yet. Last year CyberLink released its own DVD player for Linux.
