It seems that AACS 2.0 has been broken: a Russian company called Arusoft has released a program called DeUHD, which can decrypt Ultra HD Blu-ray discs. It doesn’t work on all Ultra HD Blu-ray players and with all movies yet, however.

DeUHD works on Windows 7, Windows 8(.1) and Windows 10. It does its job in the background and will automatically rip Ultra HD Blu-ray movies when inserted in a compatible optical drive. The resulting decrypted movie can either be saved as folder or ISO file to the HDD and played back with software like VLC Player, Media Player Classic, or KMPlayer. Arusoft claims the picture quality is 1:1 with the original.

(In case this is legit)

Hah! It took years for Microsoft and Hollywood to armwrestle how they should bring UHD movies to PC realm (i think there are still no proper players/software to play 4k discs?) and it was all for nothing. Pirates won anyway. Bloody idiots...

I'm betting in the long run, the movie studios will try and corner piracy by making all major movie releases have a subscription service only option. So, you won't be able to buy a physical copy of a movie on Amazon any more, but you will be able to buy the digital version and stream it on your prime account for example.

Maybe they should give up on discs and sell USB mem stick ROMs. All TV's got USB ports now, right?

AnyDVD was my shit. Now days it's just too easy to find streaming or torrent online than to bother with this crap anymore.

Without these programs, no content would be available on Bittorrent nor "free" streaming sites.

That's going to be so many years out just for the simple fact there are millions without real broadband in USA.

It's a bit more expensive, but satellite internet is available just about everywhere. It may not be great for gaming, but it's perfectly fine for streaming movies. You can get 50GB of download data each month (25mb download speeds - 3mb upload) for under $100 / month.

That's definitely a touchy subject around here.

You have obviously never had satellite internet. I had it for years and wouldn't wish it on my worse enemy. If you use too much data to fast, they slow you down to dial up speeds. But they'll sell you tokens to give you an hour of max speed for $20. Latency is terrible. 50Gb isn't going to stream crap, especially UHD/4K. I would take LTE internet any day over that crap

I bet that it's not decrypting the disc at all, it's just got a player in the background and it's capturing and encoding on the fly.

That wouldn't give you a 1:1 copy

this is what they said "Arusoft claims the picture quality is 1:1 with the original."

notice they said picture quality. You can do an encode and have it look just like the original, pretty much 1:1 but compressed.
If you rip a BD to your drive, you have a 1:1, bit for bit, copy, so it's identical.

I've been holding out on this software because the reports of success are very hit and miss.

I did grab the LG drive (wh16ns60) from Fry's a couple weeks for $70 on a 1 day sell.
