Is there a quick way to tell if a DVD has copy protection beyond the basic CSS encryption? I can use a solution on either OSX or windows, but I wonder if there is something that can tell me in advance if a DVD is going to require ripping prior to being processed with Handbrake, and saving the time of ripping if it is not required.
I second that. Another tip-off is finding the Sony logo on a popular title but seriously another backward way is to run HandBrakeCLI -t 0 (at least int 9.2) and watch for a segfault (Unhandled exception on Windows, no idea what its called on Mac) or the system binding up. However I suspect that is the point of your questionrhester wrote:The only thing I know of that can indicate what type of actual copy protection is present is AnyDVD on Windows. DVD Decrypter used to show some information but is woefully outdated today.
AnyDVD rocks though; within seconds of inserting a DVD you can know not only IF it was protected but how and you can selectively remove it.
