Building libdvdcss DLL for Windows using MinGW

  1. On Ubuntu 18.04, install the MinGW development environment for Windows:
    $ sudo apt install mingw-w64 build-essential

  2. Download and build the latest libdvdcss for 64-bit Windows:
    $ cd
    $ mkdir mingw && cd mingw
    $ wget
    $ tar jxvf libdvdcss-1.4.2.tar.bz2
    $ cd libdvdcss-1.4.2
    $ ./configure --host=x86_64-w64-mingw32
    $ make
    $ make DESTDIR=~/mingw install-strip

    The resulting DLL is saved at ~/mingw/usr/local/bin/libdvdcss-2.dll.

    Note: For a 32-bit build, use the configure option "--host=i686-w64-mingw32" instead.
