Actually, the DVD image should be independent from the encryption ... the only 
difference there should be is that the image from the copy protected DVD is 
scrambled, an image from a not-copyprotected DVD is not ;-)

The only thing what the libcss code is there for is to descramble this raw 
data and make it mplayer friendly ;)
