Slysoft releases AnyDVD beta that beats Cinavia

Posted 05 March 2013 15:49 CEST by Jan Willem Aldershoff

Slysoft has  released a beta version of AnyDVD that disables the Cinavia copy protection for various Blu-ray playback applications. The beta makes it possible to play backup copies of Blu-ray movies with Arcsoft TMT 5.3 and 6.0 and Cyberlink PowerDVD 12. The Cinavia protection has become mandatory on Blu-ray players since 2012 and prevents playback of taped and copied movies.

The copy protection works by adding additional information in the audio stream of a movie which can be detected by hardware and software Blu-ray players. It might not always be directly clear that the content is protected by Cinavia. Backups might play for 20 minutes and then mute the audio or stop playback of the movie entirely.

There has been a lot of discussion on the protection on our forums recently. The US/EU based developers of DVDRanger have posted that they have a working solution, but so far no actual proof has been released. As the company took pre-orders several members are afraid they’ve lost their money. Also because according to DVDRanger they are facing legal action from Sony which means their Cinavia module might never be released.

Also DVDFab has broken the protection for several movies and has posted several solutions to bypass Cinavia on their website. Slysoft is based in Antiqua and DVDFab is based in China, both countries are currently not actively combating piracy which means legal threats from Sony will have less or no impact on the future of both companies.

The beta version of AnyDVD is only available for paying customers, thanks to coolcolors for posting this on our forum

A new release version was just put out, as well, so it's now out of beta.

Yes, please be careful about using terms like "disables" or "removes". AnyDVD does neither.

With AnyDVD HD enabled, I was able to watch a Cinavia 'protected' movie on my PC with TMT 6 without any issues whatsoever.

Slysoft looks like they'll get rid of Cinavia right before everything is said and done.

Just remember, this doesn't REMOVE Cinavia. It only disables the Cinavia check for the software players listed. Nonetheless, this is quite handy.
