MakeMKV developer working on tool to easily convert Ultra HD Blu-ray 'official' drive to 'friendly'

Originally published at:

The developer of the Ultra HD Blu-ray (UHD) ripping application MakeMKV, appears to be working on a tool that makes it easy to convert an ‘official’ UHD Blu-ray drive to a ‘friendly’ UHD Blu-ray drive. Currently this can be done by following rather lengthy technical guides. The tool from the MakeMKV developer should make it easy for everyone.

Is friendly better than official?

It sounds that way. It seems “official” drives only work with certain programs, such as PowerDVD. (IMHO, this anti-competitive practice should be illegal.) “Friendly” drives, on the other hand, have no such restrictions.
