This module allows to control an so called AtmoLight device connected to your computer.
 +
AtmoLight is the homegrown version of what Philips calls AmbiLight.

You can find there detailed descriptions on how to build it for yourself and where to get the required parts.
 +
You can also have a look at pictures and some movies showing such a device in live action.

      --dvdread-css-method={title,disc,key}
 
                                Method used by libdvdcss for decryption
 
          Set the method used by libdvdcss for key
 
          decryption.
 
title: decrypted title key is
 
          guessed from the encrypted sectors of the
 
          stream. Thus it should work with a file as
 
          well as the DVD device. But it sometimes
 
          takes much time to decrypt a title key and
 
          may even fail. With this method, the key is
 
          only checked at the beginning of each title,
 
          so it won't work if the key changes in the
 
          middle of a title.
 
disc: the disc key is
 
          first cracked, then all title keys can be
 
          decrypted instantly, which allows us to check
 
          them often.
 
key: the same as "disc" if you
 
          don't have a file with player keys at
 
          compilation time. If you do, the decryption
 
           of the disc key will be faster with this
 
          method. It is the one that was used by
 
          libcss.
 
The default method is: key.
