Quote:

Blu-ray players could top the Christmas list, but the format has a long way to go

Sales of Sony's premium product have disappointed so far, accounting for just 12% of DVD player sales in Europe

Two years ago, Sony was brimming with confidence: in April 2007 it produced an internal presentation of sales projections which reckoned that by the end of 2009, 27m players would be in use, and 85m discs sold.

Blu-ray player sales have grown rapidly this year , but they still make up less than 12% of DVD player sales in western Europe, according to data released recently by the analysis company GfK Group.

"Sales have been disappointing for the industry," said Richard Cooper, senior video analyst at the media analysis company Screen Digest. "They were expecting that it would be adopted more quickly. But you wouldn't choose to launch a premium upgrade product in the middle of a recession."

Blu-ray is a high-end product it is difficult to persuade people to upgrade to more expensive, premium products when they are surrounded with "good enough" cheaper ones. DVD was able to supplant VHS video because it offered direct access to any point on the disc, was more robust than tape, and had extras such as deleted scenes, commentaries and multiple languages. Even so, it took just over 10 years for DVD to completely kill off VHS sales.

Looks like a free trial version....after you download it (WinX BD Decrypter), you are invited to purchase a full version as the trial offer cautions that you will only be able to a decrypt a BD source no larger than 3.5GB. Yeah this is bait and switch. Slysoft's 21day trial of AnyDVD/HD allows you to use the software as you wish within the softwares overall limits, Not some watered down free version. Don't waste your time get Slysoft's AnyDVD/HD. The best SD/HD decrypter on the market......period!!!!!!

Lower the damn prices on blank blu-ray discs to a dollar each and you'll see blu-ray skyrocket.

Until then, Sony can get stuffed with their greedy selves.

Why do people always single out Sony when there's news about Blu-ray?
There are plenty of brands that produce BD-R and BD-RE discs. The Blu-ray association is also comprised of a number of companies, of which Sony is only one. Plenty of movie studios are releasing on Blu-ray, again, of which Sony Movie Studios is only one. So why single them out?

No kidding!!!!!!!!

I mean how can a Blu-ray movie cost 20 bucks or less and blank media be 25.99 (supermediastore.com)???

Can you say S-C-A-M?

No one in their right F'ing mind would pop 25 bucks for blank media. Four discs and you can go out and buy a 1TB Seagate drive.

By the time blank blu-rays come down, blu-ray will have died out. Give it 4 years from now.

1328.12.2009 18:58

Again, it looks like a bunch of people (not all) talking out of their hind end because they lack any ability to reason.

If you're gonna hate on Sony for Blu-ray, you have to equally hate Panasonic, Pioneer, Phillips, etc. to not be a hypocrite. Some of these forums are like listening to partisan political hacks on TV who just make up nonsense (i.e. lie) for anything they have no other basis for their position.

FYI...

Current Blu-ray Royalties
-------------------------
$9.50 - Player
$14 - Recorder
11 cents - BD-ROM
12 cents - BD-R
15 cents - BD-RW

Current Blu-ray Disc Manufacturing Costs
----------------------------------------
~$1.30-1.50ea - BD-ROM (movies)
~$2-4ea - BD-R (25GB)
~$4-7ea - BD-R (50GB)
~$5-8ea - BD-RW (25GB)

Perhaps some of you aren't aware or don't remember what blank CD-R and DVD-R recorders and media cost at first???

A single layer ridata BDR costs $3...less if you buy more than one at a time. If your local store charges $25...then I would not buy ANYTHING from them.

This program is a scam...it isn't free; it is just a trial, and not as good as other trials. I can't think why DVDBack23 would even post this unless he works for WinX or something.

Great post! Have to agree with you.

I see a lot of hate on Blu-ray (even more so since some people think Blu-ray = Sony and Sony = Blu-ray), but:
- Blu-ray prices are dropping faster than DVD prices did in the same time-span, especially blu-rays with commercial movies on them
- Blu-ray market penetration is a bit ahead of DVD penetration, also in the same time span

I think there's a lot of negativity towards blu-ray, mainly because:

- Sony is involved and some people seem to think they are the biggest evil on the planet (I think they just made some good calls and some bad calls in the past, just like any other company)

- I'll just come out and say it: some people are used to being able to pirate their DVD movies easily and cheaply. They don't want to buy their movies, they just want to download/borrow and burn to blank media. Blu-ray has better encryption, making it harder to copy and blank media is (for now) too expensive. So they complain. To them I say: tough titty, suck it up! I pay on average 14-15 USD for my blu-ray movies, which is a fair price IMHO for a movie I really like. For that price I get the movie in full 1080p, lossless audio, as well as extra's and in some cases digital copy or the DVD version thrown in. I pay even less per disc for TV series.

Ditto that.....I back up SD DVD and BLU-RAY all the same. I buy my BLU-RAY and prefer SONY products over most electronics (and disc media too). Yes the media is expensive for BLU-RAY and to your point I get all of the extras special features on my BD back ups too, thanks to AnyDVD/HD and DVDFAB BD to BD. My comment about the BD WinX software is factual as what they offer is nothing but slick or common promotion ploy and to this I say from my experience, get AnyDVD/HD. "REAL CD/DVD and BD DECRYPTION"!!!!!PERIOD. :)

You know what. I downloaded the slysoft trial version at one time and it didn't work. I tried to contact the company but didn't get any useful support. By the time they announced they had more success in cracking the BD+, my 21 day trial period had already passed and they never allowed me to run that program again. So I never bother to buy their products anymore.

How is this not as good as AnyDVD? Can you spell out the details?

as they state, you are only registering a trial version? Sounds like false advertising to me then. We should all do that then start a class action lawsuit! Would be the perfect way to pay for AnyDVD HD for those of you who didn't get in on the free lifetime updates ;-)

Even Bill said clearly that BD would be the last physical media format..

That's why people aren't buying. Who buys a 25 year old horse unless they need to feed the dog?

This is a nice bit of scammerware we have here.. There are other methods and free tools which with a little care can do exactly the same thing. Puzzles me why people always think paying for something gets them "the best" .. many many times it doesn't.. windoze and norton are the two most obvious examples..

anybody with the tec care to give this ripper a shot?

This sounds a fair game to me. Yes, you are only registering a trial version but it's free. You have the option of buying an upgrade later but it's not mandatory.

I pay around 17 for 10 traxdata single layer BD-R discs, they work a treat, from Amazon.co.uk

But it doesn't say anything about registering a trial version with that info, it says to get the FULL Version for Free, use that info.

247.1.2010 18:01

I downloaded the "so called FREE" Full Version of WinX Blue-ray Decrypter. The company's words were:--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I did exactly what was suggested on two different computers & each time after typing in the Reg Name & Reg Code I clicked on REGISTER as advised. In both cases, nothing happened except the Register screen froze & I had to reboot the computer to get rid of it. I tried it again unsuccessfully to registere but to no avail.
Has anyone else had the same problem. Any suggestions?

I had a similar problem. Not only that, every time I ran that trial version and regardless what blu-ray disc I ran it on, it stopped immediately with a message saying "Process Finished". Yes, but it's a process finished without gettting any thing done.

I also tried to contact them for support but it turned out that the email address was also fake.

I wonder that as well. It's always specifically "Sony" instead of all the companies involved with the BDA.

Of all the different media on that site you specifically single out 1 type of BD-r (Dual layer 50gb to be exact) from that store instead of what most people on average would buy ~ 25GB 4X Verbatim Branded Media 10 Pack for a total of around 250gb for $29.25 or just $2.92 each disc from that same site. Quite a different picture from your $26 "example" of the cost of a BD-r! And that doesn't account for any other sites that have deals or just an overall lower price for the same media.

@ONER, BLU-RAY HOLLYWOOD fight against a raging black market that stands to greatly depreciate what's left of retail purchased movie media industry. In the last 3 years or so BLU-RAY writers along with BD media have surfaced to the retail public. BLU-RAY/SONY/PLAYSTATION 3 won the HD format war. BLU-RAY is practically selling your HD/TV's and BD stand alone players. BD players and writers are now included with current model PC desktops and laptaps. The BD media and it's high cost is the golden egg. SLYSOFT/AnyDVD/HD the baddest DVD/BD decrypter on the planet is waiting in the wings to RIPP BD media industries head off as they prepare to release CloneBD. I back up my BD titles and I'm glad for this advance in technology that allows for me to do this.

But I cant be mad at the BLU-RAY industry for trying to hold on to their investment even by the skin of their teeth. I purchase my BD media primarily from JAPAN where the media is no doubt cheaper...but no not cheap. BLU-RAY back ups in terms of cost is a "BIG BOYS" hobby in terms of cost and interest as many people still don't own a BLU-RAY player let alone a BLU-RAY version movie. Be patient. The way I see it when it all comes down over the next 6months or so, I'll be a year plus ahead of the BD back up game in terms of know how and in ownership of legitimate BD back up software.

One thing you've got to know is that most blu-ray movies were recorded on double-layer discs. To my knowledge, almost all double-layer blank dics are still over $20 a piece. Do you have any recommendation for where to get some cheap double-layer blu-ray blank discs?

Who cares, almost all of play these over home networks, attached hdd etc. I have ripped 200 blu rays and have them for access at anytime but never burned one. they cost on average $$0.70 to store on hdd at 10 gb. They are on my WHS and stream to any TV in my house. And it doesn't take more than two oer three minutes o temporarily copy to a laptop hard drive if I want one on the road.

How do you play these movie files on the big screen TV? How about the quality? Look as good as blu-ray discs?

NEW GIVEAWAY! Have you guys noticed the news in PRNewswire that WinX Blu-ray Decrypter is being away again before Sept, 15?

This time is different. This giveaway comes with a big upgrade, so this software can, according to the news, decrypt "any Blu-ray video discs, even encrypted with recent AACS MKB v25, BD+ and BD-Live, etc., and transform 3D Blu-ray to 2D video". Also, it is said to be able to both backup BD to a M2TS file or a complete folder.

Admittedly this kind of giveaway products may have some limits. But I saw the detailed info on a PDF that WinX Blu-ray Decrypter on this giveaway has no limit on functions at all! The only limit is not support for lifelong upgrade. But I think it is also worth trying for free.

Note: Activate the software before Sep.15 after free downloading.

3410.9.2011 4:23

I got it working no problem but the rip wont play no iso format output either.
