Recent changes to AnyDVD have drastically degraded the ability of the software to work easily with programs other than their in house hawked CloneDVD from Elby. They say this was “inadvertent”, of course. Today there is a new (locked) thread on their forum that places the blame for all this on all the “other softwares”, and tries to obscure the fact that the real problem is a limitation of AnyDVD not being able to remove structural copy protections in the background. They go as far as to lie: “These programs have trouble letting AnyDVD do what it needs to do before starting the post-processing.” The real truth is that AnyDVD cannot do these things, with or without these programs running. (Then they (of couse) take a moment to tout CloneDVD as the final solution.)
So to end with a question?
If this change to AnyDVD was as “inadvertent” as they claim it to be; why are they lying about the very nature of the issue at all?
