Microsoft patent spies on consumers to enforce DRM

    It's annoying, that is for sure.

    I bought a couple of movies for the kids, but don't want them handling the media. I ripped the movies onto my HDD, then I ran handbrake and encoded them to MP4 files and put it on my PS3 media server. Started watching the movie and all was well for 20 minutes. Then Cinavia kicked in and the sound went away. Decided instead to just play back from my 360, but found out that while it doesn't kick out sound for Cinavia, but it cannot fast forward or rewind the streaming MP4 file.

    So darn annoying.

    Hi there
    rip with AnyDVD to a virtual ISO -- works every time and no Cinavia B/S.

    From the Virtual Iso you can convert to other formats such as MP4 --- no CSS or regional coding --works perfectly.

    Cheers

    Are we on one of those movies where a company run the world ? Nest James Bond can be on 007 trying to save the world of the infamous Balmer and coke playing as mini-me Balmer

    Thanks Jimbo. I was hoping to not have to purchase AnyDVD in order to rip my movies. I think I read that the newest version of DVDFab now remove Cinavia...I just happened to not be using the latest version. I use DVD Fab as it's free.

    I'd throw the TV out the window first! In fact TV is so bad now, I may as well throw it out the window.

    I suppose a person could use sick beard and couch potato to avoid such intrusions. (not that I would ever, of course....)
