Until now, I used a desktop computer under Windows to play movies on my TV. My external hard-disk is encrypted with Truecrypt. I mounted my volume with Truecrypt, and launched VLC to play movies (quite simple )
New user of OSMC with a Raspberry, I wonder if there is a way to implement Truecrypt into it, in order to use a USB encrypted disk with OSMC ?
Many thanks; I’m almost sure that it shoud work, however, I don’t have Linux version of Truecrypt 7.1a (the last “clean” version of Truecrypt), and didn’t find a safe place to download it… Bad luck
Thanks anyway !
Linux’s default encryption program (cryptsetup) can mount newer version truecrypt containers and drives. If your drives have been encrypted using an ancient version of truecrypt, then you need the truecrypt binary to unlock them in linux.
$sudo cryptsetup open /dev/sdX -t truecrypt desired_volume_name
$sudo mount /dev/mapper/desired_volume_name /mnt/mount_point
