They did. It's called Blu-ray.

You mean the same EU that wanted some popular fruits to be a certain shape? I'm glad we're leaving.
It seems to be a common explanation from those happy we are leaving about why they are happy we are leaving.

I wanted to respond to this with many reasons we should leave vs the few reasons to stay, but realised we have wandered a distance from the topic so will not do so.

Off topic:
I was going to explain the joke, but as you say...

On topic:
Given that this topic has legal issues, should we continue discussing it?

Legal issues? There are none legal issues for making a backup of your own dvd movies. DMCA is a nice thing and all but it does not apply where I and many others live. So it's fine to have old CSS circumventing software in the Debian official repositories, but apps able to circumvent latest CSS are not able to be discussed? Come on... you are smarter than this I hope :wink: So basically you also state that Videolan has compiled free software code available on their website which we cannot discuss on debian forum? DMCA is worthless in more than half of the world. No need to force worldwide censorship because of a totalitarian USA regime, called land of the free hopefully saved by Lord.

//offtopic: I would be happy to further discuss political topics in the offtopic subforum, but at least we should increase the arguments from the banana level to the level discussion will make sense :mrgreen:

I don't know where you live, but in the US and here in the UK, it is most definitely illegal to make backups.

my counry is still in the EU, and bananas are still bent here :D

but it reminds me of much worse EU sins... images like these were very common in th 80s; rotting tomatoes bulldozed over on a skip in spain... the famous butter mountain...

They're still bent in the UK. I think the stories were meant to be tongue in cheek to illustrate how stupid some EU decisions are.

Boy, has this wandered off topic. Now we're talking about bananas.

the whole brexit campaign was a joke, no need to keep bashing the non conventional bananas. let's see how your economy will proceed, i remember when i had to travel a lot to witham for work that once you leave london, poverty is smashed in your face and time stood still since many years ago. on top, the whole economy is so much depending on the financial markets, the brexit can be a real party pooper over time as protectionism is not the ideal solution in a failing global free market. at least i am confident Nigel Farage will protect your bananas :wink:

World Institute for Development Economics Research : assets of $2,200 per adult placed a household in the top half of the world wealth distribution in the year 2000. To be among the richest 10% of adults in the world required $61,000 in assets.
25 million homes in the UK of which 7 out of 10 are owner occupiers. There alone indicates that the UK has significant numbers of those that are in the worlds top 10% richest.

Protectionism is a option that avoids dilution down to a lower common denominator.

As for OP pdvdrstab might be an alternative ???

I have a version of that program working in Debian Jessie (standard (command line only) with xorg/jwm/rox/pcmanfm ... installed on top), but had to get gtkdialog(3) up and running (along with installing additional programs from the Debian repository) ... but I haven't used it in any meaningful way.

The OP hasn't posted here in over 2 years. This thread is over 7 years old. It was esp7 who revived it and then went significantly off topic.

But if anyone does want to rip DVDs, just use MakeMKV.
