Well Apparently the AACS content protection system used on Blue-Ray & HD DVDs has been cracked.

According to a post on doom9 forum by hacker muslix64 his new BackupHDDVD tool decrypts and dismantles AACS on a Windows PC.
Just feed the small app a crypto key (which comes bundled with keys for a few popular HD DVD titles, with the promise of more on the way) and it will dump the video right off the disc onto your computers hard drive, supposedly playable in any HD DVD compatible player.

The cool thing is that the AACS content protection is also used on Blue-Ray discs.

Download it here.

Yeah the Xbox 360 has a HD DVD Drive add on I think.
Is it just the one DVD Movie on a Blue Ray disc?
I can fit 60 DVD rips onto 50GB so it better be high quality.  Wink

Nah I mean DVD Rips.
You can get a MPEG4 DVD rip on a 700MB CD
You can get a great quality one at 1.4GB
you could fit 60 average rips or 30 high quality ones on a 50GB Blue Ray Disc.
Saying that it might be cheaper to just get a 500GB External hard drive. Wink

***UPDATE***

THE HACKER who broke the DRM behind HD-DVD and Blu-Ray has told slyck.com that the technology was easier to break than the CSS system it replaced.

Muslix64 said that the work of DVD Jon in hacking the CSS format was much harder because they had to break encryption keys where as he didn't need to do that.

When HD-DVD and Blu-Ray came out, the movie industry said that they had constructed enough elaborate DRM architecture to prevent anyone copying content.

Muslix64's idea was to bypass the security by finding the volume keys to unlock the AACS protection. muslix64, who told slyck hacks that he does not see himself as a hacker, said he was an upset customer. He said his efforts were "fair use enforcement"!

He was so furious that he couldn’t play his movie on my non-HDCP HD monitor because some executive in Hollywood decided he couldn't that he decided to crack the technology.

After the HD-DVD crack, he thought it was only fair to crack Blu-ray too. One of the things he was amazed about was that Hollywood spent all this money on DRM protection and then forgot to protect the volume key in the memory.

muslix64 said that his hack totally busted AACS and the only way to stop it is to put different keys on every disk, which would cost too much.

Many people in the industry are trying to cover up this breach, by saying he has only poked a tiny hole in AACS, but muslix64 says it is more serious than that.

He said that all PC based DVD players are currently vulnerable to his hack. muslix64 adds that Microsoft Vista's implementation of HDCP was not much of an obstacle either because any limitations are enforced in the player. This can be overcome by using an open-source player, like VideoLan.
