1. AnyStream is having some DRM issues currently, download with Amazon, Netflix and Hulu is not possible at the moment.
    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.

    8) I fixed a DVD last night that would not play. One of my favorite movies had a scratch on it. Big scratch. Dooo
    Anyway, toothpaste and a clean soft wet rag buffed with toothpaste worked. The disk looked looked like #$&! but it played. Made a back-Up and chunked the other in trash.

    Backing up your DVD's is a idea!

    Thanx Sly Software

    If you used a toothpaste with flouride you could have kept the original disc as it would not have decayed any further ;)

    I'ves saved a few using toothpaste (gel type) or Brasso to buff out scratches.

    I've saved a few and lost a few using this technique. It's a hit or miss... Use only as a last resort.
