Download: DVD Enabler Beta for PS3 / DVD Enabler Beta PS3 Source Code

To quote from his blog (linked above): "I have started a new project I am calling it DVD ENABLER.

This will let you play Decrypted VOB files. Its simple and straight to the point, and easily able to reset the DVD drive.

1) You will need to dump your VOB files. (I am working on Ubuntu with libdvdcss + vobcopy)
in ubuntu you will need to do the run the following commands

$ sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

$ sudo apt-get install vobcopy

2) Now with vobcopy installed run this command

$ vobcopy ~/Videos/XXX/

replace XXX with the movies name.

3) Now you need to FTP those VOB files to

/dev/hdd0/DVDS/XXX/

replace XXX with the movies name.

for example Hitman unrated looks like this

/dev/hdd0/DVDS/Hitman/HITMAN_UNRATED1-1.vob

/dev/hdd0/DVDS/Hitman/HITMAN_UNRATED1-2.vob

/dev/hdd0/DVDS/Hitman/HITMAN_UNRATED1-3.vob

4) Now Install the DVD ENABLER package... (you should know how)

5) Now insert any DVD

6) Ok now run the the DVD ENABLER. it will ask you

Do you want to Enable the DVD ENABLER

Yes will enable it and No will disable it. Running the program again and saying no will reset it.

7) Now under Videos you should see a data disc. Select the data disc and you movies folders should show up. Navigate to the movie folder you want to play and play the first VOB file.

Later Versions I will try to impalement a Built in Copier and Manger."

Same as everyone else, what does it do as you can already play VOB files and have never had any problems playing them. Maybe someone can shine some light on us.

Yeah, I don't get it either. But there is source code available so someone with knowledge could take a look at it and see what this app supposedly does.

Yes, PS3 can play decrypted VOB files on the fly. This utility makes no sense.

I don't get it... I am sure I am missing something though...

The PS3 already plays .VOB files from lets say a USB HD... I do this all the time. This seems like it actually adds more steps. And if I wanted I can transfer those VOB files from my USBHD to my HDD already in a non-jailbroken console in the XMB...

So what does this do? Not trying to be rude, like I said I am sure I am missing something...
