AnyDVD HD Defeats Cinavia


Remember Cinavia? It was the audio based DRM “protection” scheme supposed to finally put an end to the Blu-ray plastic liberation movement. I don’t have any discs to test it with, but SlySoft is claiming that the latest rev of AnyDVD HD can disable detection in all of the retail Blu-ray players. If someone has a recomended disc to check this out with let me know in the comments and I’ll have a look-see.

  • I’ve never had the

    I’ve never had the displeasure of running into an issue with Cinavia.  I rip all of my Blu-Rays to mkvs using MakeMKV and use XBMC for playback, which apparently avoids the problems playing Cinavia discs.  I have a lifetime sub to AnyDVD HD, but I haven’t used it in ages.  What’s ironic is that I’ve been able to completely avoid the whole Cinavia mess by using free software, although I plan on purchasing a license for MakeMKV after I get a couple of bills paid off.  It’s definitely worth the cost.

    • For the most part the first

      For the most part the first time I watch a BD it’s in a commercial player (I want to check out what’s on the disc and whether it’s worth my time to do the full-on MKV treatment) so this is an essential feature for me when Cinavia gains more prevalance especially if it finds its way onto TV on disc. Those always stay ISO.

    • I’m in the same boat, AnyDVD

      I’m in the same boat, AnyDVD is great, but after converting my ISO’s to MKV’s, I haven’t needed it. 

  • Thanks for the confirmation

    Thanks for the confirmation and titles.

  • When I saw the phrase ‘retail

    When I saw the phrase ‘retail Blu-ray players‘  I thought of actual dvd players.  In case anyone else misunderstands the article, it is referring to  Blu-ray SOFTWARE players.
