AnyDVD HD with BD+ support enters beta

AnyDVD HD with BD+ support enters beta It looks like SlySoft has a beta of AnyDVD HD available that's capable of copying Blu-ray movies with the new BD+ protection. BD+ was released to prevent Blu-ray discs from being ripped after workarounds to decrypt ACSS on Blu-ray and HD DVD became public.
SlySoft has included with the release notes a couple of jabs at Blu-ray in general and 20th Century Fox in particular, whose release of Fantastic Four Rise of The Silver Surfer on Blu-ray (with BD+ protection) caused playback problems on certain standalones until Firmware updates were released. From the change log for AnyDVD 6.1.9.6 beta:

"Note to Twentieth Century Fox: As you can see, BD+ didn't offer you any advanced security, it just annoyed some of your customers with older players. So could you please cut this crap and start publishing your titles on HD DVD? There are thousands of people willing to give you money."

"Note to people considering to invest in HD media: Please buy HD DVD instead of Blu-ray. HD DVD is much more consumer friendly (e.g., no region coding, AACS not mandatory). Don't give your money to people, who throw your fair-use rights out of the window."

They should come up with something where if you copy a disk thats the last time you could play it or copy it or anything cheap disposable DVD's that you have too copy if you want too re-watch them.


Probably not possible right.

Well said and done , slysoft. HD DVD is the better format

I am not surprised Slysoft likes HD DVD. Well they are by no means lazy having to crack a new version of BD+ everytime its updated would be a big pain.

Hate to say it but movies that i want pay to see/own in hd are all in blu camp =( look at amazon.co.uk:s hd-dvd list few overrated movie and many old ones... Lol im not buying old ones again only because of hd. I also would like to have 50gb discs...so yea blu-ray discs are also superior unfortunately it belongs to greedy, stubborn and old-fashioned company called sony...

?I think Slysoft has some 'pull' when it comes to choosing Blueray or HD DVD. Millions depend on Slysoft. I wish they would start making some HD DVD hardware and include it with their software. It would sell like crazy!

Bah.....The first format to release the Indiana Jones/Star Wars/LOTR/Jurassic trilogies will win.

(a guy can hope, can't he?)

It's too early to choose a side. Thumbs up SlySoft! You'll come through, nicely!

(I don't even have a HD television, yet.)

HD-DVD will be more user friendly

if you want someone to copy your DVD,
.....Encrypt it.
if you want someone to copy your DVD soon,
.....use a new encryption.
if you want someone to copy your DVD right now,
.....claim the encryption is unbreakable

After reading this i think this has made my mind up of what format i will be choosing and maybe it will be the same for many others. :)
