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

Universal PS3 Blu-ray / DVD Hybrid Discs Launching in 2010

300°
252w ago - Universal Studios is preparing to launch its line of Blu-ray / DVD hybrids known as 'Flipper discs' in 2010, which could benefit Sony's PlayStation 3.

For those curious, the hybrid discs hold a Blu-ray film on one side and a 9GB DVD version on the other.

To quote: "The technology allows a single disc to offer a 50GB Blu-Ray version of a film on one side, and a 9GB DVD version on the other. It's a plan by Universal (and most likely the rest of the Blu-ray Consortium) to increase the adoption of Blu-ray HD films by giving consumers the option to future-proof their content.

One of the key components in Sony's PlayStation 3 is its Blu-ray drive, offering gamers a chance to experience high definition movies. If the Flipper discs prove to be a popular format, it could help cement the PS3 as the home entertainment console of choice.

The first dual-format Flipper discs are due to go on sale on 19th January 2010 in the US, with the very first product being the Jason Bourne trilogy, a box set containing The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. No pricing has yet been announced."
 

Sony tests digital copies on DVD releases for PS3, PSP, PC

343w ago - Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has been experimenting embedding digital copies of its movies on DVD. Wal-Mart has been exclusively offering six Sony catalog titles that have an embedded a digital copy for playback on the PSP/PS3/PC since late last month.

The embedded copies expire within three to six months of going on sale at Wal-Mart, and you must register online to obtain a code to let you use it.

Sony is apparently also hoping to raise the profile of the PSP as a movie playback device, as all you need to do is place the file on a memory stick.

To quote: The embedded copies–within Blood & Chocolate, Bobby Z, The Contractor, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth and Wind Chill–all expire within three to six months of going on sale at Wal-Mart. Additionally, titles may be offered widely at retail after 30 to 60 days. Wal-Mart has priced the discs at $13.72.

In order to enjoy these copies, buyers register online using an individual code that is included in the DVD. That registration will notify people about whether the file has timed out or not. Sony reserves the right to extend the life of the file at any time.

One possible benefit to a short-view copy is the ability to curb rampant file-sharing or copyright infringement.

In January, Sony also offered a...
