@olli "In addition, it removes region codes and user prohibitions from original DVDs you watch on your PC." are you saying that DVD Decrypter cant/doesnt do that, if so, I'd suggest you check it out again.
No need to. If I insert my original region mismatched DVD, I can watch it with AnyDVDs help right away.
WIth DVD Decrypter I need to rip first, waste harddisk space,...
> @frisk I fully understand what your saying, but the DVD has to be ripped off the DVD to your HD at some stage either as a stand alone operation or during a conversion. <
You're wrong. With AnyDVD it doesn't need to be ripped. The DVD appears to be unprotected, region free, macrovision free, prohibition free, ... from the moment you insert it.
> DVD Decrypter has far more features available than AnyDVD has. <
No, it has different features, as they are different products for possibly different purposes. Don't get me wrong, DVD Decrypter is a fine product.
> Just as a test, rip a dvd9 to your HD with DVD Decrypter in File mode and see what time it takes. Then install AnyDVD and simple use Explorer to copy all the files to your HD off the same dvd9. Then let me know which is substantially quicker than the other. <
In my tests they were almost identical. What makes AnyDVD faster - you don't need to rip to the harddisk in the first place, reducing the "rip time" to 0.
I call that pretty fast!
