I bought a documentary as DVD and wanted to bring this now on a stick. So far it always worked, but now I had to realize that this movie is copy-protected.

Since I no longer have a DVD player, I wanted to ask about the legal situation.

I can’t even watch the movie on the computer, I can only see VOB files,

but which can not be copied.

I also don’t have a laptop to connect it to my 4K TV.

What could I do legally?

"Bringing copy-protected DVD to stick"

Nothing. You will hardly be able to legally enforce a bypass of the copy protection.

If you connect a DVD drive to the computer (an external one via USB if necessary), you could use a suitable player software (e.g. a DVD player).B. VLC) at least play the DVD.

that’s the joke, when I put the DVD in my DVD drive it is not recognized,

not even if I want to start the content with the VLC player.

There are 3 *.BUP and 3 *.IFO and then the 6 VTS VOB files on it

Are you sure you have this version of VLC installed??

So you have a DVD drive and you have VLC. These are all important requirements.

Can you play other DVDs with this constellation??

Or.Have you tried the DVD in question on another device??

Yes, these are the usual file types of a DVD – so everything OK!

You don’t have a DVD player and want to insert a DVD into the non-existent player, how is that supposed to work??

Maybe you only have a CD drive?

But a CD drive can’t read DVD data!

He can see the files from the DVD..

Maybe I had not expressed myself correctly.

I meant in my DVD drive in the computer.

But it has been resolved, now everything works again

VOB files can always be copied, if you can play them then is another question. Bypassing copy protection is forbidden here. However, there were once tools that could, z.B. DVD Shrink, but that was already forbidden at that time, today surely still too, and if that still exists, I don’t know. Whether you want to move into the legal grey area with this is of course up to you.

times basically asked:

And how did you do it so far without a DVD player and without a laptop?

Nothing at all. As already said here.

I would have one more idea what the problem is:

you write that you can’t play the DVD in your DVD player either. Have you checked the region code? DVDs from non-European countries often have a different region code. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/regionalcode

To play the DVD, you have to change the region code of the DVD drive. To explain this in detail, I would have to dig a long time, it was so long ago, but I had this case before.

"VOB files can always be copied, whether you can play them is another question. Bypass copy protection is . "

it’s me again,

as already written it works now on the Copmputer.

A VOB file I tracked down always ran in an infinite loop (15 sec)

at that time there was an icon with a plane, I had to click on it and with this click the movie ran to the end.

But again to the note, VOB files can always be copied, that’s not true,

on this DVD it does not work. But it doesn’t matter now, the movie runs on the computer.

On my 4K TV but not, because I have no player more. With me everything is on stick or hard disk.

The other ways to create a VOB is a different matter now.

"it’s me again, as already written it now works on the Copmputer. A VOB file that I have located . "

What happens when you try to copy them??

Is there an error message?

"It’s me again, as already written it now works on the copmputer. A VOB file that I have located . "

Runs it now on your PC with VLC?

"VOB files can always be copied, whether you can play them is another question. Bypass copy protection is . "

Well, there was a time when it was still allowed (here).

There is a version of it that can not crack copy protection. Of course it is still allowed here, but in most cases it is of no use.

But as we know from another thread, it is (z.B.) it is still allowed to crack a copy protection in Switzerland. Therefore DVDShrink for such countries is also available in the useful variant.

So the legally correct advice could be z.B. also mean: travel to Switzerland with the DVD and all necessary equipment, download DVDShrink there and use it to transfer the DVD contents to the USB stick. (To Germany one may not import the stick then of course. )

DVDShrink also solves this problem by the way.

But you can do it only a limited number of times. If one constantly changes, is at some point end with it and the last set region code remains firmly in place. Who regularly z.B. DVDs from USA and from Europe would like to look, needs then for it two separate DVD drives.

@all: I don’t know why there is always such a fuss about "illegal copying" in this forum of all places we made. Who of us is so legally secure and can judge that?

Apparently there are quite reputable companies that see it much differently. And even if (me too) you don’t think soo much of CHIP, I don’t think the publisher can afford a pirated guide if it’s not somewhat legal.

@blochi1: Do some googling and set date to this year and you’ll get 100s of instructions how to do it.

And basically: What can be played on a computer, can also be recorded. :-)

"@all: I don’t know why in this forum of all places we always make such a fuss about illegal copying. Who . "

CHIP writes explicitly:

"Legal software is not allowed to simply copy the files from the DVD."

Instead they describe a method where the movie is played and recorded at the same time. You can do it, but it’s quite inconvenient.

Yes. But that something other than the entire DVD (incl. copy bonus material and menus) in such a way that it is executable on other media.

DVD Shrink was called.

Who wants to use it, sool use it.

(If you want to make nonsensical convulsions, you may of course do that too.)

I can tell you, because the "preachers of the legal. " adhere scrupulously, even on the street, to all specifications. There is no one there who has ever committed a speeding offence.

What I do with my CD/DVDs is in my walls all alone my beer!
The programs I use are all the same.

You name it.
And Germany would be a land of milk and honey, if everyone strictly adheres to the legality (which?), but our politicians bend them to their will and lobby advocacy.
By the way, many of my programs are from the company with the three monkeys, see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing.

This has historical reasons. About 10 years ago whole law firms lived from warnings to links to such software. No one can rule out that the old theme is not still occasionally translated into food, gasoline and warning costs.

Sure; as a user in a forum I don’t give a damn about that either. As a contributor of a forum, so as the one who then pays, that would not be so.

I still remember that forums like the former DVDBoard have sold themselves literally because of all the warnings, to have a partner with enough capital in the backhand. that were yes at that time almost all privately founded forums.

But as a private person I don’t care about that either. Whereas I have checked off the topic: my silver discs are now blurays. I don’t have the equipment on my PC to be able to rip something there.
