Subject: [Livid-dev] About CSS decrypting - why don't you...

Hello out there,

I am new to this list, and with great interest I read about your progress on
CSS unlocking and decrypting.

There is one thing I don't understand: Why don't you take a look at the
existing software decoders that are available for Windows? I've got
installed 4 of them (XingDVD, WinDVD, Cinemaster engine, PowerDVD) and each
one is capable of playing every CSS encrypted DVD I own. In theory it should
be possible to take out the CSS decrypting code part and use it in the LiViD
project. Even copyright reasons hold you back from re-using the code, it
should help to learn a lot about the process.

Any comments about this?

Greetings from Munich,

Andreas

This is what has been done.
