A Caribbean firm called SlySoft claims to have broken the copy protection technology used on some Blu-ray discs designed to prevent video content from being copied and pirated.
Probably not very long. Knowing Sony, they are spending a whole lot of money working on a patch to fix that hole. The hackers will go at it again though. Sony, just needs to let it go. I don't even think, people are willing to sit down and download a movie that is worth over 50GB.
what you've never heard of compression. apparently it's an alien programing technology that enables 50GB worth of data to be compressed in a 110KB. then after you download it it'll decompress back to 50GB and you'll have all the viewing pleasures of full 1080P on your TV screen all in a matter of seconds. you don't even need a high speed Internet connection. 56k will do just fine.
Seriously ?!? The can compress BD's already ? Holy Sh!t, that is news to me. I figured, it will be a few more months before they come up with a compression method for it. Damn..
hopefully thats sarcasm back firing on me.
No no, I seriously did not know that. I mean, I know about Winrar and .zip compression methods but I figured even with those, it would still be about 30 to 40 GB for a 50GB blu-ray movie.
hey decapitator you're confusing me man. you do know i was being sarcastic right. or don't you? why do i feel you're pulling a fast one on me? ahhhh, i give up, i don't care anymore. it's been a bad day from the start and there's no signs of stopping.
I think he got you there. At first, you were being sarcastic, but then he played around with you. LOL. Good job, Devil may cry guy.
hey, you live and you learn. lightning don't strike twice. what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. the time will come when i have my vengeance and it'll taste soooo sweet. i'b be careful decap no one makes a laughing stock outa me and gets away with it.
I don't know. I need to know more about this "claim" from Slysoft. They were claiming last year and nothing came out. If they do have cracked the BD+ and thats a big if, then it really doesn't matter because a nice little firmware update to change the encoding-key and boom they have to start all over.
Most Blu-Ray owners are honorable, and would never use a pirated movie/game on their Blu-Ray player.
this is old. They have been so quiet lately, so that means they haven't cracked BD+ yet. The article is old. You don't need to work that hard to change the coding scheme for BD+. Very little tweak, then the hard work will start over again. slysoft = slice me softly.
Will be broken again and again. Human = Human.
yeh can't wait one day i'll be able to download blue ray games and movies.don't need to pay sony anymore
