Hi, I have a DVD that is training and I have noticed an interesting form of protection on it. It has typical Folders and files and is working fine if you watch the videos from the DVD. I noticed the protection when I tried to drag the files to my hard drive, they copied over fine. I did this because when I have files on a DVD (training and stuff) I usually want them to play in my own player so I can use the pause button on the keyboard. Also it is more convienient. The breakdown of the DVD goes like this:
Quicktime Movies (the movies I can only access from DVD)
Example files (the files that you use in tutorial)
Quicktime Tutorial Libs (this is the folder that seems to have something to do with the security)
In the Quicktime Tutorial Libs are these files:
So the problem is that without running from the DVD the quicktime movie will not play. They only seem to play from the application that runs at autorun when the DVD is inserted. I want to know about this because 1 I want to play the .MOV files in my own player. 2 because I think that this type of security feature is cool and interesting, I would like to use it in some of my own projects. If anybody out there has a clue or more about this please let me know.
