Let us know how you can connect to the net without a network connection. That is some fantastical piece of hardware that you have that can connect to a network without a network connection. It could make you billions...

I think slysoft answered for me as to the legitimacy issue:

Thank you for your e-mail.

Yes, that has got our attention. Thanks for telling us about that.

We're dealing with this as you read my reply.

What a complete and utter waste of time and effort. What is the point of installing this product if it cannot: a) Open the disc without AnyDVD being present b) Open a region free BluRay Disc c) Support drag and drop for a BluRay region free disc. Have unloaded this rubbish software and consigned it to bin 13. Most of the software I have downloaded from GOTD I have enjoyed and gone on to successfully upgrade to newer versions. To say I am somewhat disappointed is a great understatement.

For those who want to back-up their Blu-Ray DVDs but don't want 25GBs of space gone after each DVD, they can be converted to a BRrip at about 7GBs or a BDrip at about 800MBs. (the just delete the original Blu-Ray rip. I highly recommend you take the time to learn how to convert to a BDrip in .MKV format.

BDRips are encoded directly from the Blu-Ray disk, so it's far better quality than a DVDRip and it's not much different than a BRrip. They usually have a resolution of 720p or 1080p, and are encoded using the matroska (.mkv) container and x264 codec.

There really isn't a DVD or Blu-Ray software program that doesn't have a freeware alternative. Searching how to create BRrips or BDrips will provide a lot of tutorials with links to freeware programs.

I've tried & I just can't see a situation or use where I'd recomend Odin Blu-ray to HD Converter. In a nutshell it's supposed to re-encode Blu Ray video to 1080p or 720p wmv, mpeg2, or AVC. Wmv is coupled with Windows Media Audio, mpeg2 with mp2, & AVC with AAC, all with the choice of mono or stereo -- all but WinMedia is locked at 44.1 sampling. Frame rate [fps] is locked at 29.97 -- most all BD video is 23.97 or 24 fps... there isn't a good way to make that work, or a reason to. Installation will likely break ffdshow, the Haali media splitter, & some Cyberlink apps if you have those installed -- it may also break mpg2 (& possibly any) video handling in your Windows install.

That all said, If you've installed Odin Blu-ray to HD Converter without first doing a backup of some sort, you *might* want to leave it that way until you can find out if everything video still works on your PC/laptop. Then rename the program's folder, Or delete *To Recycle Bin* etc. -- you want to purposly & *temporarily* break everything in that folder -- & try all your video apps again. If everything works OK with the folder there, & breaks without it, you may want to leave things that way -- IOW don't uninstall. OTOH if everything works OK without the Odin Blu-ray to HD Converter folder, uninstall. If something like ffdshow or a Cyberlink app doesn't work either way, re-install them. However if Windows mpg2 &/or h264 handling is broken either way, you might have a bit of work on your hands best handled with some assitance in one of the video forums.

RE: alternatives... Today the front page at videohelp.com has several alternative &/or related apps that are either new or a couple of days old -- visit their tools section for more.

This giveaway (like most others) does not have free upgrades. If blu-ray goes through another major change, you will have to buy this program to get upgrades.

I have just downloaded -- no testing done yet -- but reading the first several comments *maybe* a quick summary RE: working with Blu Ray will help... note that even a *summary* may seem complicated, but most anything Blu Ray is right now.

There are 4 apps I'm aware of that by-pass the DRM on Blu Ray discs, & they are updated often as new protections are always appearing. DVDFab is one, which copies the disc or movie to hard drive or disc, and it has a built-in converter. When you copy the entire disc with DVDFab, the results may/may not play as-is. The developer is also working on an app that just bypasses the DRM so you can access the contents of a protected Blu Ray disc -- it's up to you what you do then. So far it doesn't always work, is in Beta, & while it's in Beta it's free. The 3rd app is AnyDVD, which works along the lines of the Beta DVDFab Passkey app I just talked about. Their trial does have some limitations, & the app itself installs a driver which can sometimes have compatibility problems with what you've already got installed -- back-up your system if you want to be safe. The 4th product is MakeMKV, which works like DVDFab in getting a movie to your hard drive, but it doesn't attempt to keep it in any sort of Blu Ray format the way DVDFab can.

Now, AFAIK there is only one app that can extract audio/video from a an unprotected Blu Ray disc layout (whether on the disc or your hdd), & that's eac3to.exe, & every conversion app uses it. It creates MKV format video files, & converts DTS HD audio to DTS &/or AC3. There are a handful of apps that attempt to keep the orig. menus & such, but it's really hit or miss, more often miss because Blu Ray discs can use Java to make things work -- designing, authoring most commercial Blu Ray discs involves coding in Java using software that costs 10s of thousands of dollars. There is one, very well thought of freeware app called multiAVCHD that can create Blu Ray layouts (w/out Java) to burn to disc. Most video converters are being updated to handle the usually MKV video & AC3 audio that eac3to extracts. That MKV is just a container for the original video with it's original encoding, which is usually AVC but may be mpg2 or VC1. That's a problem, as most systems can't handle or play AVC or VC1 without installing something like ffdshow, which may cause it's own problems, & many apps require you have AviSynth & other software also installed.

At any rate that's a brief as I can make it overview. That Odin Blu Ray to HD Ripper requires some other app to bypass DRM isn't unusual -- most every other so-called ripper I've seen on GOTD or anywhere else does, unless it's one of the 1st 4 mentioned. Comments on their site to the effect of *call me* if/when the AnyDVD trial runs out sounds suspect, but for all I know they may offer a discount, so I won't condemn them without knowing their true intent. Blu Ray is a often a PITA with discs that can require you to watch a 1/2 hour of commercials before watching the movie, too often (most of the time IMHO) don't really contain HD video at all, but up-sampled DVD quality, with DRM etc. that means many won't play properly on your PC/laptop, & maybe not on your stand-a-lone player. The BD Live features may prompt your stand-a-lone player to go online, which to some presents a whole lot of issues, not the least being it may trigger a firmware update, & those can be more bad than good [Google/Bing]. IMHO those are good reasons to: 1) start with a DVD if you just want to put something on a hand-held, 2) go through the hassle to re-do Blu Ray discs you buy [if/when the special features don't mean anything to you of course], &/or 3) put BLu Ray content into another format you can watch on your HDTV or monitor using your PC/laptop or a separate hardware media player [usually via your home network or USB drives/sticks].

Expecting the end user to install anyDVD to use your software is simply silly. This function should be self contained within the software itself. Anything else is just messy, unnecessary, and unprofessional.

This is merely a converter, with an AnyDVD plugin for ripping functionality. If you don't have Anydvd full, then you will have to use the AnyDVD trial. After 21 days trial of AnyDVD HD you will have to contact product support. (to supply you with a trick to reinstall the AnyDVD 21 days trial again?). Don't like this sort of business.

This publisher is as shady as a trench-coat-luxury-watch-salesman!

- Third party shareware is needed to function, with the offer to "help" at expiration.
- You can op out of some of the crapware during install, but beware of the EULA. You agree to install adware/spyware by default! A full browser toolbar is part of the deal, like it or not.

I mean really, how naive do they think we are?

I would stay away from today's giveaway. Sure it is free, but safety matters.

This is not ripping software, it is just transcoding software. It uses AnyDVD to do the ripping. It certainly seems shady that they mention it uses a "trial" version of AnyDVD HD, and that if the trial "Expires" just email them for assistance.

Take a lot of gall to put that on your produt overview page in the general questions section. It would be one thing if the answer was, We have licesned a portion of the software from another company, but contact us for assistance with it. But installing a trial version?

@JBB: Google this: Combined Community Codec Pack

@Fivish: This program can encode movies into different formats that can fit on a blank DVD or just save them on your computer's hard drive.

@Dr. Olaimi: No standard DVD readers can read Blu-Rays. Also, you need AnyDVD to break new encryption techniques. They come out with new encryption schemes almost on a weekly basis.

Free alternatives:

Handbrake
Any Video Converter

Installed easily; haven't tried it yet (blu-ray drive is at another location at the moment), but it appears to only be capable of ripping two channels of audio (i.e. no surround sound). Checked all included profiles and the only audio choices are either mono or stereo.

If you don’t have a blu-ray reader you cannot rip a blu-ray disc!!!
It’s like wanting to surf the net without a network connection…

Comment by Ciumbia — September 27th, 2010 at 7:12 am



LOL!! Actually, with the right tools and "know-how", it's not impossible to surf the net without connection....

As for the BLU-RAY issue, how about convert Blu-Ray to a regular DVD ??

There are plenty of Free tools online capable of doing this.

#5fivish-are you denouncing all Blurays? or just complaining about the cost of blank bluray media?.If the former-no comment required as thats just crazy . If the latter get with it ,Blurays are very stable if you take care of them properly and you can now buy blank bluray media for under $1 everyday,and under 75cents if you shop the deals.Those are delivered to your house prices BTW and the discs are great-no coasters if you have a decent setup.Check out Newegg for some good quality, inexpensive Blanks.

So let me get this straight in order to use the software you must purchase another companies software that also sales a product that does the same job? Hmmm... let me think. Oh yeah why buy your software again?
Slysoft sells anydvd hd $67.50 (which we would need to purchase to use your software)?

I am very interested in this statement from the site also
"If AnyDVD expire after the free trial days,do i need to order it?
No need! If AnyDVD has expired,just contact our support team,they will help you solve the problem.Email: support@odinshare.com "

Really they can "solve" a trial expiring? Just how is that and is it legal? I'm sure Slysoft would love to hear how that is accomplished. Lets ask them shall we?

And no I don't think I will try the software since the question of bypassing another companies legal rights is unanswered. If I wanted to become a software pirate or hacker I wouldn't be here looking for legitimate legal software would I?

The site does not indicates whether this software is going to rip a blu-Ray from any DVD reader!

Instead it says to download another version (AnyDVD - Trial) to do that job! therefore, the question is:

Can I use this s/w to rip Standard DVD from Standard DVD reader, with an option to rip blu ray from standard DVD reader?

Thanks!

Didn't work for me. Tried twice to rip a few minutes from RENT BluRay. Produced two files that Quicktime said it could not understand. Fed these files to Aimersoft which refused to load them as well.

The tutorial on their website, supposedly for this product actually refers to a different product (with slightly different functionality i.e. subtitles)

On initial play, I received some warning message about my version of AnyDVD not running (or some such). I do actually own AnyDVD but this prog claims to decode protection on its own.

A poor user experience for me and a waste of my bandwidth unfortunately.
