    I read a post from James saying "AnyDVD does not support 4k UHD disc playback."

    Is this still true? If yes, any ETA for which version will be supporting it?

    This is the key feature to get me to repurchase a license - thanks.

    Yes.

    No ETA. I would expect them to be following UHD but there's never been a 100% statement they will release one. They haven't said that they won't either. Really comes down to finding a weakness in the protection mechanisms and that takes time.

    Check in every week or so, I have no idea what the plans are.

    I'm just waiting for one of James' BETA releases to say;
    "4K discs now supported"
    "Please report any problems"

    :)

    Video games use heavy DRM too, but once in a while game publishers would remove DRM of older games and sell them on places like GOG.com. This is not to encourage piracy necessarily, but to promote good will among their customers, because some game publishers also know that DRM inconveniences everyone. I wish the movie industry would do something like this, and remove DRM on movie discs and sell DRM-free versions of them after a certain time. But I guess it is a totally different industry, different economy, different customers, everything.
