I’ve seen that there are some folks who’ve gotten DVD Fab Decrypter or DVD Fab Platinum to successfully decrypt a CSS protected DVD on Linux using Wine. I have been attempting this with both the beta trial and the beta Decryptor versions but although it announces a success the files are only partially decrypted.
The settings are at their defaults to use css and all the other copy protection removals. The program itself has no problems installing, uninstalling, or running in Wine.
I have the DVD mounted and DVDFab successfully finds and loads it when started. I just leave it at full disk and set it to a folder in my home directory to place its finished product into. It then proceeds to do its job and announce its success.
Whether I open the files in DVDShrink or try to play them in Kaffeine, they are mostly green or otherwise pixelated and so they don’t play correctly and I obviously can’t shrink and burn them.
The same DVD will decrypt fine using DVDDecrypter in Wine. Shrink works shrinking it down to DVD5 and I can then burn a nice VideoDVD with k3b.
I tried changing the I/O mode from auto to IOCTL but it makes no difference.
I haven’t placed any native dll files into my wine drive as so far no programs have needed that. I’m using 0.40 Wine as 0.41 hasn’t been placed on the Wine budgetdedicated.com server for Debian yet.
The program seems to work, but just doesn’t cut through the css encryption as DVD Decrypter does.
Others don’t seem to have a problem with this, so I’m wondering what needs to be done to get it to do its decrypting job. It transfers the files fine but they can’t be used as they are encrypted.
What does DVD Decrypter do that the DVD Fab programs don’t when run on Wine in Linux?
I have libdvdcss2 running on the system and can play or decrypt using k9copy, DVD Decrypter, and play with Kaffeine or Totem any encrypted DVD’s.
I am interested in DVD Fab since the newer protections will not be able to be decrypted on Linux without something like your program. But at this point I can’t even get it to decrypt the normal css stuff.
