    not so good for people where having a program like this is prohibited (germany for instance).

    Same here. We have something called Digital Millennium Copyright Act signed in 1998 during Clinton administrative.

    Hi Stanley,

    this is Juergen, German Translator for MediaCoder. It’s very nice that MediaCoder can now rip DVDs, but there is one little problem. With having that option in MediaCoder, your program will be illegal in Germany.

    Is it possible to do an international version, in which MediaCoder can only rip unprotected DVDs?

    Hi Juergen and hi fellows,
    I didn’t expect the harm of this feature. No problem, from next release, I will remove this feature from the standard distribution, and provide an downloadable “upgrade” pack to enable this feature. 😉

    Thank you very much. This way I have a legal basis to use this program and contribute further to it.

    I have the latest version ( build 3795) and I can’t see the upgrade to restore the css decode feature. Can you point me to it?

    Thanks for restoring the speed of file processing again!
