On a related note in 8.10 beta 2.
I can play all my dvd's from disk but when I try to rip them to my hard drive a bunch of them stop around the 4%-5% range.
Does Anybody else see this?
What you see is copyprotection.
I have seen many newer movies that cannot be ripped the way we do it.
Unfortunately this will most likely be more and more common.
As a workaround you may rip with other apps and transfer the resulting ISO to LMCE.
I have no good alternative to you, but rumours say "makemkv" on linux should be able to rip most movies.
Even encrypted BlueRay. Have not tested it yet and do not know if this app is really available.
Saw a note about it on #xine.
