AnyDVD and DVD-Region Free are commercial on-the-fly dvd decryption software which do the same thing but with a few more bells and whistles. Many commercial DVD transcoding software doe not include ripping ability.
After installing DVD43 and patin couffin driver and rebooting you’ll
see a little yellow smiley happy face in your tray icon bar.
It shows 0/6 dvd drives. One DVD-ROM drive, one DVD burner and
four virtual dvd drives with daemon tools.
Once you put an encrypted DVD in a DVD-ROM drive the yellow icon will change colors to green. Now you can start using a commericial DVD transcoding program without having to rip it first to the harddrive thus saving you valuable time.
Some don’t like it always starting up at boot time so you can download dvd43startuponoff.zip which contains two registry entries namely dvd43disableonstartup.reg and dvd43enableonstartup.reg.
