i need a dvd decoder type program like mactheripper is to osx. whats out there?
idk wtf mactheripper does, but i use clonedvd2 from elaborate bytes
it decodes dvd so you can burn/ save them on your computer. it also lets you pick what parts of the movie you want to save and decode.
i like ripit4me because it combines several programs in one and is continually updated
thanks man. ill try em out.
404 legal not found
it is legal. i use mactheripper all the time. i insert my dvd, rip it, and put it back into my library. this way, i can watch movies on my way to work w/o the hassel of dvds.
i dunno about your funky laws in the us of a, but in canada, that is completely legit under personal use laws. i don't even have to own the original, just be the one to make the copy of the original.
convenience has nothing to do with it.......... it's illegal in the US.
canada can allow whatever kinds of theft they want but the answer stands..... it's illegal in the US to rip an encrypted DVD.
well, you can have your laws, but the information i provide is legal in canada. it's up to the user to obey their own country laws.
land of the free....
Next time I'm in canada and need a car I'll remember it's ok to just take yours
sure. just fill the tank up when you're done
the user requesting the info is in the usa. The servers that host ot are in the usa. the corporation that "runs" ot is incorporated in the usa.
Everything indicates that OT must obey usa's laws.
Even more basic... the owner of the board decided he didn't want people to discuss ripping DVDs.
keep in mind that it is legal to copy a dvd, however copying a dvd almost always requires you to decrypt or break copywrite protection, which is not legal
that's like saying "It is legal to walk on the other sidewalk but it is illegal to cross the street"
how many commercial DVDs are not encrypted?
It's not like saying that. Raw copying reproduces the original, bit for bit, including the encryption. Copying to another format requires breaking the encryption. A better comparison would be it's legal to cross the street, but only within the boundary of a crosswalk.
clonedvd2, "[SIZE=-1]makes perfect backup copies of your unprotected movie DVD"
ripit4me requires dvd decrypter which can do raw copying but not until recently so that's not what most people are using it for. They're using it to decrypt.
[/SIZE]dvdfab decrypter does not do raw
dvd shrink, no raw
mactheripper "rips to raw vob files on your PC." I don't know so I'll ask...is it possible to rip a vob to a pc and make it playable from your pc without breaking encryption? I don't believe it is but I'm not 100% sure.
The point of my post? Almost everything discussed in this thread is illegal in the US.
honestly, i thought that mactheripper just copied the video_ts folder off of the dvd to the hard drive
Either way... If the disc is encryptred, it has to be broken before copying it.
no, that won't work on an encrypted disc
if just copying the folder worked then what good would the encryption be?
thanks for the moral and leagal advice but im really not worried about it. i have been doing it for years its just now i have a windows box and being an avid mac user i have no clue about windows programs.
it breaks the encryption to copy it.
How about if you just lock the thread, 7960? It's against forum rules to discuss breaking DVD encryption, so just end it.
