• AnyStream is having some DRM issues currently, download with some streaming providers (Netflix) might not always be available in HD.
    Situations like this will always happen with AnyStream: streaming providers are continuously improving their countermeasures while we try to catch up, it's an ongoing cat-and-mouse game. Please be patient and don't flood our support or forum with requests, we are working on it 24/7 to get it resolved - but it will take a few days. Thank you.

"Title: Wer früher stirbt, ist länger tot
Country: Germany, RC2
Release date: 22nd February 2007
AnyDVD version used:

When i insert the DVD AnyDVD disables itself stating the disc is defect.
So i had a friend check his DVD and he encounters the identical problems, so it is safe to assume the disc is not defect.

Here is the AnyDVD message for the disc:
"Summary for drive E: (AnyDVD
HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H22N 1.00 06/08/05
Drive (Hardware) Region: 2

Media is a Data DVD.
Booktype: dvd-rom (version 1), Layers: 2 (opposite)
Size of first Layer: 1853440 sectors (3620 MBytes)
Total size: 3025127 sectors (5908 MBytes)

Media is CSS protected!
Video Standard: PAL
Media is locked to region(s): 2!

Warning: .bup file location is wrong, .bup processing disabled!"

The next strange thing, Windows shows the size of the disc to be 15,2 GB, also confirmed by my friend.
There are 6 IFO files on the discs, two of those have a size of 976 MB each, which is why i cant send them to Slysoft."
