Ready for RipGuard?


Distinguished Member

"Macrovision says its new RipGuard technology will thwart most, but not all, of the current DVD ripping (copying) programs used to pirate DVDs."

"Macrovision said the new technology will work in "nearly all" current DVD players when applied to the discs, but it did not specify how many machines could have a problem with RipGuard."

"RipGuard is expected to be rolled out on DVDs from the middle of 2005, the company said."

Note the "nearly all"

There's a short thread in the HTPC forum .. it'll not be un-breakable, it can't be if DVDs are to be at all playable on existing PCs with existing versions of Windows and OS/X.

Look for updates to AnyDVD et. al. sometime soon. :)

Also, it remains to be seen how quickly it gets adopted by the Hollywood pigopolists, especially if reports start coming in of DVDs not working on widely-used CE DVD players.
