LinDVD from Corel was a commercial proprietary software for Linux for the playback of DVDs and other multimedia files. The latest version supported ultra-mobile PCs (UMPCs) and mobile internet devices (MIDs), as well as a streaming media and a wider range of standard and high-definition video and audio encoding standards.[1]

LinDVD can play copy protected (CSS) DVDs. Certain distributions like Mandriva have included this software in their commercial Linux distributions, and Dell is now[timeframe?] preinstalling it on their Ubuntu systems.[2]

Corel removed all information about LinDVD from their webpage, that is, LinDVD is not supported anymore.
