    can someone please tell me that there is a way of capturing video from a DVD without using 8 different programs and 43 different file types and all the rest of it!!!

    all I want to do is capture a few mins of DVD onto my hard-drive, as a file that can be played in mediaplayer etc.

    Please someone help if you can.. all I can find is endless tutorials on using hundreds of different programs and a really evolved process... I just want to capture a bit of film...

    Many Thanks to anyone that has any ideas

    Piers

    DVD Decrypter is the best for ripping dvd to HD and use PowerDVD to play the video.

    That's all there is to it.

    So I've had a link removed by nutcase_1uk to the DVD Decrypter website. To a piece of saoftware that is legally available to download for free and is legal to own and use.

    [What was meant to be a private PM removed by Spectre]

    Are we going to have discussion of these on the forums banned now?

    Following on from the above, it appears nutcase_1uk is not adverse to using software capable of "piracy", but also of providing instructions on how to do so within the forums.

    Have a look at http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=60972 and make up your own minds.

    It certainly appears to be worse than the software I recommended

    That software can no other use than creating illegal pirate copies and by publishing that URL you are promoting piracy.
    As per the forum rules, that link was fairly removed.
    We've recently relaxed the rules relating to piracy. Previously this thread would have been deleted immediately.
    Piracy is illegal and we don't allow it's promotion.
    If previous discussion have done worse than your thread then they should be dealt with aswell.
    Please stop whining about the forum rules. Just deal with it.
    Nutcase - will you please see to that?

    The link to the progam was what was altered, not mention of it. Noone has said that discussion of piracy is banned.

    Yes, that thread linked to broke forum rules. Now it has been brought to my attention again I have moderated it accordingly. Moderators are not above the rules, even for posts made before becoming a moderator.

    This is a good time to remind forum users that if they find a thread which they believe breaks forum rules, or they otherwise find offensive, that is what the 'report post to moderator' button is for.
