AnyDVD users?

10 Replies, 8429 Views

Some of you may have heard that Slysoft has closed and that AnyDVD will not get any more updates. The last version is 7.6.9.

I didn't realise that many Blu-rays require access to an online database. Fortunately the database server is still online, but it's only a matter of time before it disappears. AnyDVD saves a copy of the keys locally, so I've backed up my database of 55 keys and will be able to decrypt all my titles indefinitely.

It's probably a good idea for everyone to download their keys and make a backup while the server is still online. There are a couple of things you need to do:

  1. Slysoft is no longer "advertising" the key server so you need to add the line " key.slysoft.com" to C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
  2. You then need to systematically insert each disc, one after another, until AnyDVD completes its initial scan (you do not need to actually rip the disc!)
  3. For each title that requires the database, a file will be added to %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\SlySoft\AnyDVD\Cache - make a backup of this folder once complete.

Hopefully that's easy enough to follow and helps all the AnyDVD users out there Smile
Thanks for this - very annoying that Slysoft chose to close eveything down.
AnyDVD was one of my favourite Applications, because owning about 2500 DVDs and BDs, some from different countries with odd Region Codes (DVD: RC 1, RC 3 and RC 5; BD RC A (none RC C afaik)) it was just helping me to watch my discs...

Keep in mind there's always an alternative too - DVDFab Passkey - which was even given away for free few times.

From this article:

Quote:Blu-Ray BD+, ... (edited by admin): Recent discs (1-2 years?) need OPD. Older titles work. OPD results will be cached locally, if you copy the cache, you can move it to another PC.

Hence point 3 on the original post, I'm assuming to 'play safe' you will need to run these discs at least through AnyDVD to cache the opd result - I did a couple last night - interestingly, only the feature discs had BD+, the bonus discs in both sets did not...
Wow, so they're reborn
That didn't take long, LOL Tongue
I didn't even know it shut down. Jeez.
