Publisher's Description

AnyDVD works in the background to automatically and transparently enable read access of the contents of a movie DVD as soon as it's inserted into the drive. The DVD will become useable to your windows operating system and all programs on your computer, such as DVD-Backup-software like CloneDVD, Pinnacle InstantCopy, Intervideo DVDCopy and others, then supporting any DVD. AnyDVD optionally disables the RPC region codes, thereby making the movie region free and comfortably viewable on any DVD player and with any DVD player software.

AnyDVD is capable of disabling unwanted movie features such as forced subtitles, forced delays, and no-skip marks, giving you full control over your movie experience. It also allows you to launch an external application whenever you insert or remove a disc, and prevents unwanted software like 'PC-friendly' from automatically launching when you insert a video DVD.

Company enscenated a planned "takedown" of their company, there hasn't been any lawsuit, it was a great way of decieving their paying customers.

Surprised to see this here, hehehe. I'll give them A for effort for continuing to try and stay alive after the entertainment industry had them shut down. Currently no way to buy a license, so I wonder what's the point..... Unless you keep using AnyTrial v0.2 to keep resetting the 21 day trial(with AnyDVD closed, or in safe mode). Currently using DVDFab Portable. I've read up on their woes, and seems they were not quite in the same predicament that Slysoft was for a few years leading up to its demise... As of now.
3 stars for effort in staying alive

The same conditions that closed Slysoft could (will) close RedFox - I just do not trust these people enough to pay up.

Annoyingly I paid for a Slysoft HD licence a week or so before they closed down. No warning was given & IMO they cynically continued to take people's cash down to the the day the website disappeared when they probably knew the end was near well before then - bas****s!

The lifetime licence will probably be measured in a hamster's lifetime if that - Be warned.

I too have DVD Fab but how long it will last who knows?

Anyone have a bargepole?

Unfortunately your lifetime downloads were their lifetime. You are going to have to buy a new license to get this version forward to decrypt any new codes from this point forward. Those of us that thought we had our lifetime for the relatively high fee are the ones screwed. Fortunately I have DVDFab which is still working, but will they do the same thing. Look for a lawsuit in the future.

Slysoft products have always worked well on all my computers. I have all of them except Game Jackal. Luckily I purchased free lifetime upgrades with all of them and they were much cheaper back then. Unfortunately for over a week now I've been unable to get updates or even any download because their website has been shut down with no notices of why. All I can think is that they were shut down by government for some illegal business practices. So if you don't have a copy of their latest software and already paid for it you're basically screwed. Hold onto any install copies you have because they can't be replaced

I've used this for years now. I guess it was cheaper back then as I got it bundle priced with cloneDVD. But I still get the updates for no charge and has always worked even through several PC's and multiple operating systems. Sadly I have less need for copying discs anymore as I usually stream online now..

Anydvd and clonedvd are the 2 program to use period.
But......., they are all fashion right now 1.they are to expensive 2. Now they are good program the do the same 3. If you want a movie for your collection just downloaded from the internet 720 or 1080 get a good burning tool , Nero, Roxio or 123 copy Right now movie store that rent movies are gone or will be gone., and then why do you need this.

Hands down works better than anything else I've tried.

Frequent updates. I've had very few issues. and they've been fixed in updates or a setting change.

It's so nice not being forced to sit through trailers warnings and other crap that you can't skip or FF through. I've also gotten a few problem discs to play that for some reason wouldn't w/o using AnyDVD. Though that may have just been a fluke.

I had a few retail discs with Cinavia that TMT would flag as pirated, AnyDVD fixed that irritating little problem.

I'm a bit tight with my money, but I sprang for a lifetime license.

Hey Outlier...the software you'll want is Handbrake:

http://fileforum.betanew...or-Windows/1131991349/2

Use x264 as video codec, with the mp4 file extension with large file size (I prefer mkv because you can add chapters etc). I Use constant quality at RF 16 for HD rips (may be overkill, lower is better, many people recommend 22 or 20 for HD. I use RF20 for DVD rips). Use high profile, Film preset, I use the slower setting.
On the picture tab, Anamorphic=Loose, Modulus=16, Cropping=automatic. For audio use passthru if it's an AC3 file, otherwise you're compressing a compressed file. If it's DTS I like to compress with Nero AAC in Foobar2000 and remux the audio with MKVMerge, because the AAC options in Handbrake for Windows aren't good quality but they don't allow Nero's AAC encoder because of licensing issues.
People on the internet will argue all day about the settings I've just given, but it should be a good starting place since all the options can be bewildering for novices. Also you should definitely try MakeMKV as an alternative to AnyDVD HD for ripping blurays to the drive.

I first watched reviews of software, then went through the trial programs until I found what worked consistently without problems. I have never been disappointed in AnyDVD HD's performance, or simplicity. My experience is that this excellent software with a great company behind it. The best in my opinion. Now if I could find the best (free or share) program for converting 1080p *.iso files or VIDEO_TS files from HDD to adjustable compression MP4 files, I would be very happy. (along with recommended ratio) for can't tell difference on 70-100 inch screen.
