Realnetworks (yeah from the bloated real player) has launched RealDVD, which allows you to rip DVD’s to the computer and well, read this:
RealNetworks publicly launched RealDVD, a new program that makes it possible for PC owners to easily rip their DVDs to a computer with digital rights management (DRM) security included.
It will typically take between 10 to 40 minutes to rip anywhere from four-to-eight GB of data, and users have the ability to watch the movie as it’s ripping. Each ripped DVD is encrypted so it cannot be inadvertently shared or stolen by others. In addition, it’s possible to save the movie to a portable HDD or USB key, then watch it on up to five other computers that have RealDVD installed.
The regular DRM from the DVD and Real’s additional level of DRM will make it more difficult for people to rip DVDs and try and put them on a peer-to-peer network.
I haven’t tried it and I was wondering if anyone else did here and wants to share some experiences?
