HD-DVD Content Protection already hacked? - [briefly]
05:21 AM EST - Dec,28 2006 - post a comment

One annoyed consumer, going by the name of 'muslix64', bought an Xbox 360 HD-DVD player over the holidays along with some HD-DVD's and was annoyed to discover he couldn't watch his movies at 1080p because his hardware lacked HDCP support. In what would seem like in an act of frustration, the consumer set out about finding a way to playback his HD-DVD movies on a system without any content protection available. He believed it was not 'fair' and that something should be done.

The very basic software he created, self-described, allows you to backup copies of your HD-DVD movies as long as you have the decrypted title keys. How does the program work? According to the FAQ, " This is a java based command line utility that decrypt video files (.evo) from a HD DVD disk that you own, to your hard drive and you can play them back with a HD DVD player software." As long as you know how to find the encrypted title key and then know how to decrypt it, you can use the program and "backup" your movie. Naturally though, the software seems innocent but it's clear where this is headed. How long will it be before software is created which tells you the key? Surely not long. Interestingly, if you know what you are doing and I'd say most software programmers would consider this simple, you can follow the PDF guide which is publically available on the AACS website itself. On page 30 and onwards, it begins to talk about extracting the title key, decrypting it and even changing it - all publically available for download mind you - we assume for HD-DVD and Blu-ray developers to follow as guidelines.
