Hey! DVDFab will do the best to protect the existing customer's interests. DVDFab can't decrypt the AACS Blu-rays protection in the US market.However,DVDFab can work very well together with the free Addon named Woookao to decrypt it.

Everybody knows that Woookao is just an older version of DVD Fab PassKey Lite that you guys are distributing through a dummy chinese server. When it was first released you guys didn't bother to pull the version information out of the properties dialog box so it was plain as day. I see you got smarter and wiped the version info from the current download, but the cat is already out of the bag. It's PassKey Lite which means it just decrypts AACS but doesn't do anything about the newer BD+ and Java protections. So, I'm guessing that in response to the legal actions DVD Fab took out the AACS decryption but left in the code to handle BD+ and Java because they probably weren't covered in the current lawsuit. So for the time being, installing PassKey lite (a.k.a. WoooKao -- where did you get that name?) replaces the AACS decryption and supposedly allows DVD Fab to function once again -- I wonder if anyone here has actually tried it. I say for now because the MPAA will most certainly catch up and file more actions to get you to remove BD+ and Java circumvention. Good luck with the chess match.

For now, it is a much better solution for US customers to just download the European version of build 9.1.5.6 from:

I stuck with free programs for the longest time, just because I didn't want to spend the extra $50 or $60 or whatever when there were good free options. I finally wanted to enjoy the east of functionality I saw in DVDFab, and pulled the trigger a few months back.

Ugh.

That's all I have to say. I hope my 2 year license holds up.

Recently DVDFab removed their Blu-ray copying and ripping capabilities due to legal issues in the United States. It can no longer decrypt AACS blu-rays in the US version.However,luckily a new tool has emerged on forums called Woookao which is easy to set up free addon can work very well with DVDFab and being able to remove the latest protections on new releases.

Here is the tutorial for you all : Backup Blu-ray movies with WoooKao and DVDFab:http://www.myce.com/article/tutorial...-dvdfab-72113/

I think they are just doing what they can to try and convince new users that they should still pay full price for their software even though it has lost 90% of its utility when it no longer could decrypt BluRay. A smart shopper who is made aware of the score, is not going to pay full price for a bunch of mediocre utilities and then have to depend on the continued availability of a "mystery" 3rd party free app. as the missing piece to make it work. What happens when they get sued to remove the BD+ cracking module. I guess if I were a new user I would be spending that much money on an AnyDVD HD license.

Well of course in our country -- that is what this thread is about. DVD Fab Website is blocked in the US.

Are you a licensed user with a reg code? The free version apparently stopped working for newer releases after v9.1.3.6. Other licensed users have reported the EU version works for ripping BD's.

I don't know anything about ripping BD audio with DVD Fab. I don't even know if it can do that.

I have had a forever, or whatever it's called, license with DVDFab for a while now. To rip hi rez audio from a "Blu-ray Audio ONLY" disc or a regular BluRay Movie (concert Video), I also needed to use FabKey (forget exact name).

This really sucks. I just want to rip the music audio to place on my server.

By the way....thanks for your response.

Do you mean PassKey?
PassKey for BluRay is not available in the US any more.

What module is your license for.

thanks for the quick reply, so If i dont have passkey installed anymore (removed it the other day) but i have several old versions of dvdfab, should i assume that Woookao has been removed and its something else entirely thats causing my rips to fail?

Yep, I'm in the same exact place. I want full HD video and audio. Plus Ultraviolet is still a little discombobulated. You have to access through multiple services or you have to remember to remember which service it is you want to access through. Disney is doing its own thing. You get me a service that has full HD streaming and I'm on board.

Restrictions on format shifting aren't primarily about reducing unauthorised distribution, they are about milking every last dollar from existing copyright. Over the past 30 years we've shifted from VHS to DVD to Bluray, and now to Digital. With physical distribution media, the copyright owner has been able to gain a royalty from each the format shift (first you bought a movie on VHS, then you bought the DVD version, and finally you bought the Bluray version). Software such as DVDFab allows the consumer to format shift to the latest distribution media (digital) without paying a royalty to the copyright owner.

Secondly, the world was traditionally segregated into distinct distribution markets with each market having different pricing based on what the individual market was prepared to pay for the product. Generally this also included an intermediary who had the exclusive rights to distribute in that particular market, and took a cut of the sales. This enabled the copyright owner to maximise their profits. DRM on DVD and Blu Ray allow the copyright owners to maintain these structures and economic rents. With increased globalisation and associated ease of access by consumers to other markets, consumers realised they could parallel import content at a much cheaper price than buying locally. In order to do this, tools such as DVDFab are necessary to remove the geographic restrictions on the media.

Format shifting and market segmentation are the biggest cash cows for the content industry, and hence their desire to limit the availablility of tools which challenge their exclusive monopoly on distribution.


I pay for the digital version whenever it is available. I like to be able to say, I spent money on every available version so the studios can't say they lost money. But they aren't even offering a full HD streaming service or digital copy. What they are really doing is hurting themselves just like the MPAA did with digital music. The MPAA fought and fought. And now you can buy high quality DRM free audio on iTunes. I buy one copy and I play it on all my devices anywhere I happen to be. Furthermore, I don't even have to pay for the entire album. I just buy the songs I want.

Which contributes more to the "death" of the industry than any piracy. Not that any of the content owners would ever admit this.

It says "The suit seeks millions of dollars to be paid by each of the companies for violating the Audio Home Recording Act of 1992. The Act protects against distributing digital audio recording devices whose primary purpose is to rip copyrighted material."

I do not think they have a case because ripping is not the primary purpose. In fact I have never done it in my BMWs. My music from various sources is loaded to the car HD from thumbnail drives. Most people use it that way. They could outlaw the ripping in the car and my music files will still get to the HD easier.

If they don't then what's next. Play a CD in your car with the windows down and get sued for not paying public performance royalties?
