Is it an plan to develop AnyDVD for Linux OS?
You are correct.I would like it, but James said it's unlikely because of it being closed source.
You have a point. Unfortunately BSD has even less market share on desktop systems than Linux.I might chip in with the comment that unlike with Linux, there is only ONE version needed for BSD as all do speak the same "language" (package)
So what about a BSD version? Do it once and it will work with all BSD flavours.
Closed Source? No problem for BSD.
Sorry, Linux freaks, butBSD kicks *ass*, including the penguin.
FreeBSD/PC-BSD Kernel 6.1 -p11

You are correct.
So what if it's a closed source application?
There are many commercial applications on Linux (some of them very expensive) that use their own drivers that are of course also closed-source modules. The kernel becomes "Tainted", and that's all.
The only side effect is that kernel developers won't accept "OOPS" messages from a Tainted kernel into consideration for debugging.
Post #7 also states why there is no version for linux as well Supply and demand has to really be real high as updates for it to do latest movies time that it takes is in the factor too. Another words due to limited people using linux and the time it takes to create such a version is too cost effective to the company. Just my thoughts.
Just my oppinion:
If you guys don't offer a Linux version of <insert-cool-application> then sooner or later someone in the open source community is going to write it. Unlinke you, that someone will release it for free, and it will run on all platforms: linux, bsd, windows, mac.
i know this is a rather old thread so I apologize for raising it from the dead, but I'm an anydvd/clonedvd diehard and my recent switch to linux has left me at a loss for my backup needs.
if anyone objects to this post please have a mod delete it as I'm not sure it's appropriate to ask about other programs, but I was wondering if anyone had any tips on what's out there for linux (ubuntu) as far as decryption and backup software that's as good (or almost as good) as the anydvd and clonedvd combo.
i didn't want to create another linux thread and since I know the issue has already been talked to death.
I'd rather keep vmware as a last resort option...I'm trying to rid myself of windows for good and it seems as though slysoft is the only thing keeping my system dual boot at the moment! (so consider that a compliment!)
You might install Wine and then try AnyDVD. There is decryption software for Linux and if I am not mistaken RI4M was done for Linux as well as Shrink and DVDD. I would try the Wine route first as there are several apps at are Windows based that work w/ Wine.
thanks for the suggestion! I had totally forgotten about rip it 4 me.
And hello again . . .
oh ouch haha. thanks for the heads up
and hello to you too
Well, if you do find it, I don't recommend allowing it to connect to the internet.
I'm not sure what Linux users use to backup movies, sorry.
Do you like otters?
