I have nero 7 on a computer with a new blueray/hd-dvd rom drive. I have nero 8 on another computer (I could uninstall both and swap copies on computers). I’m mainly looking to playback and rip movie only to my htpc (maybe even compress a little). Nero’s site of course is vague. It seems that both versions are blueray capable with a 25$ plugin, but it also seems that nero has pulled the plugin from their site (maybe trying to push nero 9).
So is nero 9 my only option for this (with nero, I know dvd fab can some of it)? Are there any good free tools like dvd decryptor or shrink for blue ray? I have tried digging through the toold listed on video help but I’m still wadding through all the programs and what they do). Fyi, I have anydvd-hd to help with ripping but it only rips the whole movie. IS there a clone dvd version for blueray yet? I also may want to play with bd9/bd5 (blueray on dvd media) down the road but don’t really have a need for it now.
