So the people complaining about CSS Free being shareware are the same dudes who wet their pants about AnyDVD. Go figure. I've been using DVD Idle Pro (DVD Idle + CSS Free) for years and never had a single problem. Does what it says, no fuss no muss.

Not worth the price for the low features. There are better programs out their that have more features, stability and give more than a bang for your buck.

Downloaded the trial a couple of days ago. Seems to be Ok up until now. One issue that has arisen is that my Ewido Anti-Malware 3.5 Security program does not like what it has identified as a Trojan (Trojan.Agent.sk) which seems to be part of the trial version at least.

Greetings to all!

Been using DVD-RF since it was in 1.5 range. Sorry I can't remember the exact version I started with. Using it on a Compaq EVO D-310 with XP Home. It works on everything I've tried - WinDVD 4 & 6, MS Media Player 8 & 9 and the Interauctual Player. Everything was perfect! Not writing this review on my home system, so I can't remember the exact name of my DVD-ROM drive "HL-DT-ST"?? or some other gouping of 6 letters?? Just can't remember right now. What I do know is that this program royally kicks ass. I installed it and it worked perfectly with its default settings.

I *did* notice that under DirectX8, WinDVD 4 was a little jumpy when playing discs mastered in the European PAL format. However, that vanished when I installed XP Service Pack 2 - DirectX9 is an intregral part of SP2.

All boiled down - Fengtao's software kicks ass. Learn it, live it and love it - preiod.

didnt work nearly as good as it claimed. many apps still couldnt decode the dvd. i tried AnyDVD but that one just froze my comp every time. I use DVD X Ghost now, works perfectly.
this one gets thumbs down.

Funny, I found just the opposite when I tested DVD Region-free and AnyDVD. DVD-RF worked every time and AnyDVD didn't. Granted that was a while ago but still the fact is that DVD-RF has never let me down. I can't imagine something else working 10 times better when what I use works perfectly. I'm interested in how you came up with this 10 times measurement.

Why not use AnyDVD? 10 times better than this program.

QUOTE: "Why does every developer think his prog deserves to be in the small task bar?" I agree!! Developer abuse of the System Notification Area (aka System Tray) is rife. There is absolutely no excuse for not providing a means of removing tray icons (although many apps - this one included - should have never had a tray icon in the first place).

This app works like a charm. The current version out however is 3.21 and not 3.22 as stated. (According to the offical web site)

I am no expert on this, I just started using this prog yesterday (I use Hollywood+ most of the time, and there the prog Remote Selector is the cure for region crap). First I tried one called DVD X Ghost, but it didn't help with WMP/WMC players. So I tried this one. Both players are not in the list, but they can be added easily. After adding them the prog does its job, but not very good. From time to time it freezes the player, esp. the wmc one, but sometimes also WMP9. What I like is that one can jump directly to the movie. What I dislike is that one can't remove the icon from the task bar. Why does every developer think his prog deserves to be in the small task bar? I don't want 100 items in there. 3 stars, and rather closer to 2

Programs like this kick ass! Anybody who supports regional encoding and/or territorial lock-out deserves to die a slow, cruel, painful death.
