Question About AnyDVD HD Future Compatibility

    Hey all,

    Just a quick question, what's going to happen once BD+ begins being implemented. Is the software going to be rendered useless for copying Blu-Ray movies?

    We don't know.
    I haven't found any thorough description yet, about how BD+ will actually work. So I'll better make no promises, we'll have to wait and see...

    As I can imagine, even without BD+ AACS can use several techniques in future discs which are within current specifications, but which will make decrypting significantly more difficult task.

    E.g. they can start encrypting titles with multiple keys, using different key, say, for each 5 minute interval of .m2ts file. Probably they can also make .m2ts file non-continuous, i.e. you will have to follow some rules to play it back in original order. These measures will render currently available simple tools like BackupBluRay useless. Knowledge of disc structures will be required to successfully decrypt and play such disc. Will AnyDVD HD be ready for this type of response? Or maybe it already is?

    I'm not even talking about inevitable key revocations, which is also a great concern for everyone who has some rough idea how AACS encryption work.

    No. AACS set up the rules, they can't do anything a today's "AACS-certified" player won't play. So all they can do is stick to the specs. And AnyDVD HD can handle the specs.
    They might start adding what DVDs already have today: bad sectors and all that crap. Same game different name....
