DVDFab 8.0.6.5 Displays a Cinavia Protection Pop-up During Scan of Resident Evil: Afterlife R1.

While using DVDFab 8.0.6.5 - Blu-ray to DVD - I received the following message during the initial scan: "The disc contains Cinavia protection, you may not be able to play the backup disc on certain players like PS3 (fw: 3.10 and up)." I continued with the backup/conversion process with no problems; however, when I tried to playback the DVD in my stand-alone Sony dvd player the video, on several occasion, would "jitter" or stop completely and then continue on. Is there an effort underway to correct for Cinavia protection?

I have contacted Fengtao on this and I'm sure it will be fixed as always

Thanks for the rapid response StormJumper. I just tried to make a backup of SALT (Blu-ray R1) and it contains the same pop-up as Resident Evil: Afterlife (Blu-ray R1).

The Cinavia protection operates by modifying certain audio frequencies to create a watermark in the audio stream and this watermark survives normal audio processing/conversions.

So far it hasn't been successfully removed.

To remove it the audio will have to be processed appropriately based on the Cinavia algorithms.

At the moment there's no method of establishing how these algorithms work although this may change if current efforts to reverse engineer the PS3 firmware turn out to be successful.

Even if the algorithms can be determined though it remains to be seen if Cinavia can be successfully removed without significantly degrading the audio.

Personally I wouldn't expect this to be beaten any time soon but hopefully I'm wrong.

Yet another reason I've stayed away from going with Blu-ray just too many headaches
to have to deal with at this time. When it get as easy to make back-ups of it as it is a
DVD then I may change my mind about it.

I have to say as for right now I do not want to spend that kind of money on buying any
Blu-ray movies and players and software and not be able to successfully back-up the disc
so the original doesn't get completely worn out and or damaged.

Agree completely. I've stayed away from Blu-ray and have no desire to switch.

+1 getit29 , although I WILL buy them. I just won't spend the money on the discs, software and the burner to try to back them up...

Guys there have been quite a few queries recently regarding Cinavia in relation to various programs.

This is likely to increase and as it's becoming difficult to answer all these queries without cross posting I've created a general Cinavia thread here.

So if you've any general Cinavia related comments we'd be more than glad to hear them there.

TIA

Creating the new thread may inadvertently create cross-posting within itself my friend specially when it involves DVDFab.

If there's any advice that applies specifically to DVDFab then it's more appropriate to discuss that here.

At the moment though no program can remove Cinavia so the only advice that can be given is general and applies equally to all programs.

The Cinavia thread is therefore there for general comments and not only collates the relevant information in one place but has the advantage of being relevant to whatever movie copy software anyone would like to discuss (including whatever future programs or workarounds, if any, that may eventually be able to defeat it).

Members looking for general information regarding Cinavia can now be directed towards one location which will hopefully make life easier for us as well.

Cinavia protection

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
By Fengtao

Dear all,

Download latest version of DVDFab v8070 to copy Cinavia protected Blu-ray disc.

A new protection for audio-video content appeared: it is called Cinavia. It is reported to be used for protection of movie from theaters and disc releases on DVD & Blu-ray. It consists of a multi-level watermark that is embedded in the audio track and, while being theoretically transparent(not-audible) for the listener, it is supposed to resist various transformations of the audio stream like re-compression, analog playback&record, re-sampling, pitch shift, etc. The base levels are analog, but on the top level there's the watermark payload that contains some restrictions regarding the playback environment.

The protection has two elements (one cannot work without the other):
1. The watermark embedded in audio-video content.
2. Cinavia enabled player, that will refuse to play the content if it does not match the restrictions.
Examples:
1. A movie copy made with a camcorder in a theater that contains Cinavia (THEATRICAL_NO_HOME_USE) watermark will stop playing within about 1 minute on a Playstation 3 and display a Message 1.
2. An unprotected (no AACS) Blu-ray backup of "The Losers" (US release) will mute the audio after about 20 minutes with Message 3 (for not coming from a TRUSTED_SOURCE).

We consider that it is useful for the users to know about discs that contain Cinavia protection and about players that have detectors for it.
Also, DVDFab and DVDFab Passkey provide information about original discs that have the watermark.

Blu-ray discs:
The Losers *(Warner Brothers, volume name=THE_LOSERS) (English track only)
The Karate Kid (2010)* (Sony, volume name=THE_KARATE_KID) (most of the tracks)
The Other Guys (Sony, 14dec2010) (English track only)
Resident Evil: Afterlife 2D* (Sony, 28dec2010) (English track only)
Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D* (Sony, 28dec2010) (English track only)
Salt (Sony, 21dec2010) (English track only)
The Social Network (Sony, 11jan2011) (English track only)
Takers (Sony, 18jan2011) (English track only)
Burlesque (Sony, 01mar2011)
* for those, in teritories where the movie is not released by Warner Bros. or Sony, the Blu-ray does not have Cinavia

DVD discs:
Takers (Sony, 18jan2011) (English track only)

Blu-ray/media players that use Cinavia:
Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) firmware 3.10 or higher
Pioneer BDP-V6000
Marantz UD5005
LG BDP550 (fw: 8.31.283.C)
Denon DBP-1611UD

There have been identified a couple of workarounds (listed in the order of usability):
1. Use the audio track from the DVD release of the same movie, particularily handy if it was a Blu&DVD Combo release.
Pros:
Good quality (DVD audio track is probably an AC3, cannot compare to the lossless of a BD but still good)
Works on any Cinavia-enabled player, because the audio has no watermark (future proof).
Cons:
Needs the DVD version as well (may be hard to source a 'clean', matching DVD).
Needs remuxing skills.
The DVD version may be a different mix, so the whole track may not be 100% in sync with Blu-ray release.
Recently, with Takers, the DVD also has Cinavia watermark, making this workaround useless.

2. Embed DTS core in a PCM track, like in the DTS CDs. There is a special way in which DTS compressed can be stored in a WAV file, for example, and eventualy written on a CD-audio. A player such as VLC will see there is a DTS track inside and decode it correctly; others may not know that and will produce a hissing noise (static). So appart from embedding DTS sound in a PCM track, one absolutely needs an external AV-receiver to decode it.
Pros:
Very good quality, the bitrate of the DTS track is higher than of a AC3 one, from a DVD.
Not detectable by the Cinavia enabled player if it is set to pass-through the audio to an external decoder. This way the information about the source of content is lost and the external decoder has no reason not to decode the audio.
Cons:
Well, there could be a reason: if it does not know how to extract DTS from PCM. We tried this a while ago, but could not find an AV-receiver to cope with the DTS-in-PCM track, so we only mentioned it now to present you all the posibilities, even theoretical ones. This is more like: "what a nice idea, too bad I cannot use it"

3. Apparently there is another trick to be tried on a PS3 (only) and it needs you to select optical cable as output in Sound settings and checking all the sound formats (weird and dangerous! see the warning PS3 will display there), then also select the multiple output option. See this and this.
Cons:
We could not manage to replicate it on our PS3.
Seems more like a bug in the Cinavia detector of PS3, so it's quite likely to be patched in future firmwares.

And finally, the first solution to disable Cinavia is here. DVDFab has a new way of creating backups so they don't trigger Cinavia anymore. This solution is particularly useful for PS3 users who were the most affected by Cinavia. What makes it a great solution is that the disc is much like the original, a protected backup so the Cinavia-enabled player will see it as trusted source and will play it back just like the original. People have made protected (isos) backups in the past, but those had the disadvantage that they only worked with the programs that made them; well, these protected backups are supposed to work on standalone players too.

Technical details: the discs created are called BDMV-REC as they are AACS protected recordable BDMV. Another solution would be AACS protected BDAV, like the ones produced by Japanese BD recorders.

Requirements:
original Blu-ray disc with Cinavia watermark. DVDFab and DVDFab Passkey will tell if you have such a disc
a BD-RE (recommended for initial tests) or BD-R disc to store the protected backup
a BD writer
updated writing software. DVDFab checks for it anyway

Pros:
It is a solution to disable Cinavia, exactly as it is disabled for the original disc, due to (AACS) protection layer being active.
DVDFab does all the tricks involved to create such a protected backup at a push of a button.
The disc can preserve all the original features like menus, interactivity, BD-Live.
Broad firmware support: PS3 users with firmware from 1.60 and up to 3.55 can use BDMV-REC discs; fw3.55 is the latest at the time of writing.
At any time, DVDFab or DVDFab Passkey can be used to remove the protection, if you need to.
This is kind of an official solution, because it involves support from AACS standards, the same standards that force adoption of Cinavia
While we tested it on PS3 for now, it may work on other players too. As results from tests will become available we'll update you with. Also it seems that only PS3 has Cinavia detector in current, up-to-date firmware (others disabled it, like LG, or just announced it for future firmware).

Cons:
BDMV-REC is not implemented by all players. BD Players implemented Blu-ray standards as they saw fit to market their products. Not all of them have implemented AACS Recordable BDMV (BDMV-REC). PS3, being one of the best players, did.
If not on PS3, we encourage users to check the playback support for "AACS protected recordable BDMV" either with BD Player support or with a BD-RE.
PC players support protected BDAV, but not BDMV-REC.
Cinavia is not removed, just disabled. Well, whatever works We tried to provide you with a solution asap and this was the quickest.

There is an additional requirement for DVDFab's interim solution to work: your BD burner must be capable of creating a "protected" disc. Mine is not (a fairly new Lite-On 12x burner). My Sony standalone players are incapable of playing back a BDMV-REC disc, so not being able to create a protected disc isn't the issue for me. Since my players have no earthly idea what cinavia is, none of it matters . . yet . . .
I would be very careful about applying firmware updates to players from now on, as unpleasant surprises may be lurking in them.

Well, you may be right. The good thing is, I am very pleased with the performance of my primary player (a Sony BDP-S1000ES), and have no urge to replace it anyway. Hopefully there are hardware requirements for the cinavia rootkit that my players do not meet.

btw - Sony has just released firmware updates to a number of their players. No mention of loading the cinavia rootkit to players is mentioned in their notes related to these firmware updates . . but be very careful. Sony has little regard for their customers - they only care about themselves and feeding their copy protection paranoia.
