  • decoded DVD movies won't play

    First of all, please don't flame me for my problem. nough said.

    Once in a great while I would go and rent a DVD movie. By that I mean once every 3 to 6 months. Since I would like to watch the movie a little after the due date, I thought I decode it into my hard drive and watch it later. I notice some of them are region free protected. The original DVD is region 1. Once it is decoded, it becomes region 0 for the computer to play it back from the HD. When I try to play back the movie it warns that "This player is incompatible with the region marking of this disk" Crocodile Dondee in LA that I rented 7 months ago is one of them. I recently rented Spiderman and it too gave me the same warning. I can't play the movie. Has anyone came across the same problem? Is there a fix for it? Additional info, DVD decrypter for ripping, PowerDVD XP for playback.

    if all else fails you could always just DivX the VOBs and watch it that way? Problem could be with your version of Power DVD since I can do what u ask with no such trubbles....

      P-III 933Mhz on a VIA PL133T chipset with PC100 memory on my Car PC? that would take a day to encode a movie at 4-5 fps. Then another 2 hours to compress the audio. Then another hour or so to sync the A/V. I'll pass on that.

      What version of Power DVD are you using? what ripper and version did you use? what movie did you rip? I never had a problem playing DVD movies from hard drive before. I just found out that some movies are using new Region protection scheme. It prevents multi region DVD players to play such movies.

        When the movie was ripped, it ripped as regin 0 and the region protection kicked in. I had to use the DVD Decrypter to change the region setting from region free to region 1. Now it works

          what?????????? where did you get those times?

          my G/F does a full DVD --> DivX encoding (both video and audio) in just under 6 hours for most movies on her Duron 800Mhz... im not sure where u get 1 day to encode from?

          anyway your problem is solved now.... not to worry

            It takes 8 hours to encode a 90 minute movie in the car PC at 4.5 FPS. The PL133T chipset is the bottleneck. I had a P-III 1Ghz with 440BX chipset with same memory that encode a 90 minute movie at 8.5 FPS in about 4.5 hours. Not much difference in speed tween the 933mhz and 1ghz. certainly not double the encoding rate. My current P4 2ghz on intel 845D chipset encodes at 18-20 FPS. dual proc almost doubles the frame rate.
