  The Restriced Codecs article recommends an application that was

Bug description:

  These two help articles both recommend the Fluendo DVD Player for
  legally playing DVDs. However, Fluendo announced that they would be
  discontinuing their product as of April 11, 2021, and new licenses
  don't appear to be available anymore (https://fluendo.com/en/blog/post
  /oneplay-dvd-player-product-discontinuation/). As such, these
  instructions are no longer accurate.

  The AskUbuntu community is currently searching for alternatives
  april-2021), but, in the mean-time, at least a note saying that the
  software was discontinued will be helpful.
