The developers of DVD Ranger have released open source movie copy software. They claim that the software called BDNeXtCOPY is a free and open source successor of movie copy software DVDneXtCOPY and based on the code of that application. Although BDneXtCOPY is open source, the actual source code has not been released yet. According to the developers it will be published soon, ‘after some cosmetic changes inside the source code’.
We received the news from someone who mentioned that this a project of the author of DVD Ranger. DVD Ranger is currently under fire as the company behind DVDRanger claimed that they developed a future proof solution for the Cinavia copy protection.
A copy protection that can be found on many Blu-ray movies. Unfortunately the software has never been released and many Myce members wonder if it will ever see the light. According to the company the delay of the release of the software is caused by legal threats from Sony. It’s an interesting move that the same person now plans to release the source code of DVDneXtCopy.
There are also plans with BDNeXtCOPY. It should be developed in such a way that it can be used to copy or make Blu-ray discs, it should be possible to make 1:1 copies of already copied DVDs and Blu-ray discs. And it should also support GPU encoding and decoding for Nvidia, ATI and Intel GPUs.
