[QUOTE=Kerry56;2734449]^ A few points regarding the post above mine. The sentence stating “[I]If you own DVD Ranger CinEx HD you get CinEx HD free.”[/I] may not be particularly clear to those not familiar with the programs from DVDRanger. If you own DVD Ranger CinEx HD, the [B]CinEX HD Utility[/B] program is also available to you at no cost. Hope that helps explain that they are two different programs. [/QUOTE]
No disagreement to that point.
[QUOTE=Kerry56;2734449]AnyDVD HD is not a free program, so when DVDRanger et al recommend using it, they [B]are[/B] actually telling you to invest in another program just to use theirs.[/QUOTE]
But Anydvd HD isn’t cheap when bought standalone if one wants a lifetime license otherwise they will have a 1 or 2 year license subscription to have to renew after their time runs out that can be a expensive purchase should one not use it often enough for their own needs. Or if they forget the subscription is over they will find out when they go to use it the next time and have to go through the renewal process again. Just thought I point that out for others wanting software to backup their DVD/BD movies.
[QUOTE=Kerry56;2734449]AnyDVD HD is not the only Blu-ray decryption program. DVDFab can do this as well, and there is currently a free option called MakeMKV, which can make a complete backup of a Blu-ray disc, or output to a main movie only .mkv file. MakeMKV is free to use for Blu-ray while it remains in beta status, and has been in beta for many years now.[/QUOTE]
No, DVDFab is also there as well but considering the problem the US been giving them and their site that also makes users consider will this program still be good if they get hit again. Slysoft so far haven’t gotten the full hit yet but I know they are trying as well.
