Software Update: AnyDVD

SlySoft released version of AnyDVD on Thursday. This program runs in the background in Windows and is able to bypass the region and copy protection of DVD, HD DVD and Blu-ray discs on the fly. It is also able to skip mandatory sections, such as copyright and FBI warnings. Finally, the speed of the drive can also be adjusted to reduce the noise produced during playback.

A license of AnyDVD costs 41 euros, while the HD version has to pay 63 euros. Previously you had a lifetime license for this, but since this year that has been converted to a license that is only valid for one year. This can be extended for a few euros more, for example 49 euros for two years for the standard edition. You can take advantage of the perpetual ‘temporary’ discount of 20 percent this time until June 15. Below is what has changed in
