I just wanted to complain about Cinavia as my bluray playback software keeps asking me to update it but I won't knowing that Cinavia will be implemented in the update.
What is Cinavia you ask? If you download movies off of the internet you will learn sooner than later.
It is a new kind of DRM - a watermark inside the audio track of a movie. No method of file conversion has managed to destroy it yet. Movies in theaters recorded with a camcorder are even subject to it.
It requires two things: a dvd or bluray authored with Cinavia and a licensed bluray player (of which the Playstation 3 is one - take note all who play files on their PS3).
Any file made from a Cinavia disc will toss you error messages if you try to play it with a real bluray player or pc bluray software. Remuxing to mkv, m2ts, ts, etc does not matter.
Unlicensed players - things that do not have official bluray playback capability - are immune to it (for now). On a PC that would include VLC, MPC-HC, etc. On the hardware side, things like a Roku, WDTV, Boxee Box, also do not have to deal with it.
