I have an issue I need help with. All advice welcome. First a little background. HP elite 800 desktop, win 7 32 bit, vlc 2.2, potplayer 1.7.Both play encrypted and non encrypted discs. Both record non protected discs. Neither record protected discs. I need a soltion. I have 3 in mind. 1 A FREE dvd decryption app that will pull protection from the disc and save it to a common folder, videos, in a common format, AVI, MP4, MKV, WAV, or others. The selected file would then play/record in the player the app is tied to, vlc or potplayer which are the only 2 recorders I have. 2 The above solution that will allow me to send the file to vlc or pp of my choice. 3 A decrypter that works on the fly. Decrypting dvds and allowing vlc and pp to play and record them from the dvd drive, "E", in my case. DVD43 works with 32 bit systems only. The app insists that I have a 64 bit system and displays an error. It worked in XP but NOT 7. I need a FREE solution, free to download/install, free to use indefinately.. WINXDVD, ANYDVD, AIMERSOFT, SHRINK, FAB, are NOT free, trials only. solutions please. On the fly is preferred. One that works on both 32/64. Any win os.
