AnyDVD – Remove DVD copy-protection (Windows)

AnyDVD works in the background to automatically remove DVD copy-protection as soon as it’s inserted into the drive, allowing you then to backup the movie using a DVD backup tool such as CloneDVD.

You can also remove the RPC region code, thereby making region free DVD viewable on any DVD player and with any DVD player software.

AnyDVD is capable of removing unwanted movie features, including subtitles and prohibition messages such as copyright and FBI warnings. It also allows you to launch an external application whenever you insert or remove a disc, or prevent “PC-friendly” software from automatically launching when you insert a video DVD.

Decryption is not all that AnyDVD offers. You can reduce the noise level of your DVD drive by controlling its speed when watching movies on your PC. You can even adjust the display frequency of your monitor for both NTSC and PAL displays.

But AnyDVD doesn’t just stop at DVDs. It also removes copy-protection from audio CDs to allow you to copy them.
