Slysoft has closed down

SlySoft has shut down its website and ceased sales of the popular Blu-ray ripping software AnyDVD

Very, very annoying for people who like to play DVDs and Blu-ray discs through their HTPC.

I used to use MakeMKV for remuxing so I can do various editing and playing around in AVS.

But then DVDFab had a couple giveaway events to hand out free Lifetime Pro versions of their Passkey.
Which operates like AnyDVD-HD but is separate from other DVDFab encoders and tools.

I'll probably buy MakeMKV when it's out of BETA.
I was so glad DVDFab had their promos.
AnyDVD-HD for life was too pricy and didn't really like the idea of paying any less until I could buy lifetime.

It's good there's more options out there.

Trying to find an alternative now... I had Anydvdhd lifetime for years now. That to rip and BD-Rebuilder to convert to MKV was great.

I got a license for DVDFab Passkey when they were giving them out free. Going to have to reach out to their support because there are issues with it working and listing any drive as a source to rip from, even though they are listed in the settings screen.

What other options are there to rip and feed to BD-Rebuilder?

I'm rather surprised they caved in now. They are based in Antigua and develop software that's perfectly legal there, is it not?

I wonder why they didn't register their company in more "civilized" countries like Russia or China?

BTW. Is MakeMKV a Russian project?

Going by the name of the developer (Mike Chen) it looks more like Chinese...

So it looks like Mother Russia is the last safe place then At least scums from AACS LA won't kill MakeMKV. I'm sure that russian courts will dismiss any claims from company located in USA. Especially now in these times.

Where do you get that from? Still seems to be up and running and probably having the sales day of their life.

The only thing I see is the announcement about UHD, but nothing that would impact functionality of their existing BD product.

I admit I haven't investigated further (for I assumed the results are the expected ones).

China will be curbed down soon.

Er, DVDFab has been selling and updating their Bluray decryptor outside the US uninterrupted all along. US users can even access its online database without a problem, they only did the bare minimum to redirect US users to another web site. You should investigate further, they haven't shut down at all.

The UHD statement is most likely because they don't have the technical expertise to immediately crack AACS2, so they're going to have to wait until someone releases (or sells them) a crack.

Will it still work for people who bought it? Or did it phone home to get the decryption keys rendering it now useless?

Unless they release an offline version of the database, it will only decrypt discs which you have the key locally cached for (ie. those that you decrypted once before)

It would appear so, yes.

It will continue to work for all discs that have been released until now and a portion of discs that will be released in the future. Future discs that are protected by an updated key or a new BD+ will not work.

AnyDVD did not require a phone home to decrypt. There was an online decryption database, but that was for recently released discs. Those new decryptions would then be put into the local database of the newest versions of the program. So if you always kept it updated to the latest version you would not technically need the online database.

This does not seem to be the case based on my testing (after I got home from work).
