Do you want to get around the need for HDCP complaint video cards? Good news everyone! Slysoft has release an update to their AnyDVD line dubbed AnyDVD HD. Obviously Slysoft is not based in the US. At any rate, AnyDVD HD will set you back around $80 and will bybass AACS and HDCP :). Blu-ray owner fear not, they are working on a Blu-ray version as well. It certainly didn't take long for next gen DRM to be by passed.
AnyDVD HD comes with same functionality as AnyDVD, but with additional features for full HD-DVD
(High Definition DVD) support, including decryption of HD-DVD movie discs.
Allows you to watch movies over a digital display connection, without
HDCP compliant graphics card and HDCP compliant display. No need to buy
an expensive monitor. Sweet!
Playback your discs on your PC with PowerDVD Ultra, which
otherwise do not run (titles released by Studio Canal, The Weinstein
Company, Kinowelt, Optimum Releasing).
AnyDVD HD is the "must have" utility for the serious home theater enthusiast
using a media center / home theater PC.
Another amazing feature of AnyDVD HD is "magic file replacement ™".
Remaster any commercial movie disc using simple XML scripts. These scripts will
"magically" replace the files on the physical disc. You can customize
discs as you like without even making a copy to harddisk!
