The ripping software (makeMKV, AnyDVD) will need to deal with the copy protection.
I suggested it because I use it all the time and it works very well.

Um...You are sort of right. TMT5, prior to ver. 188.8.131.52 doesn't have Cinavia yet. But it will, unless you don't upgrade. And if you don't upgrade then there will be BluRays that simply won't play. After you upgrade you will
have a problem playing rips in TMT5 because there is no ripping software (yet) that can remove the Cinavia watermark. The only
Cinavia infested media type that TMT5 will play, by license, is store-bought-officially-pressed disks
(or 'direct playback of disks'). There are plenty of other (non-licensed) players that can play Cinavia infested rips, but TMT5, because it is licensed, is not one of them.
Here's what ArcSoft beats around the bush to say: http://www.arcsoft.com/Forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=10631&title=cinavia-protection-in-tmt5
... Google 'tmt5 cinavia' for links to the truth.Edited by olyteddy - 12/17/12 at 9:11pm
