Gee, was I thrilled to discover THAT! I don't have $6000 to pay an evil extortioner.
Had you already (DG)Indexed the files (prior to extortion) or were they indexed after they were made 'non-playable' ?

[ie was it the pre-existing indexing that enabled defeat of blackmailer, or did they index ok even after being obfuscated].

EDIT: I assume that DgSource also indexes files akin to DgIndex.

EDIT: And I dont suppose that you still have samples of the obfuscated files, or do you ?
And what types of files worked OK, VOB ? [I'm guessin' VOB or TS or Mpeg2 Program Stream], and were there any file types that generally did not work OK.
I sometimes post sober.
