omg, too much Dopamine in my brain now.
Well, the thing is: Yes, BluRay Ripping and stuff is done. Of course it is done. Sly stuff is done. Yes. Because otherwise these things are sometimes unwatcheable.
So one could use that as an argument to say: c'mon just release specs and docs. (I would be happy if they did for sure.)
But then the content mafia could blame AMD which is a far better target than SlySoft which is located (officially) on some island somewhere between the deepest asian jungles and pacific ocean in a country that likely gives a shit about copyrights and stuff. AMD would be internationally open for attacks. AMD has enough troubles and doesn't need the MPAA or something on their ass. So I understand that they're careful with releasing this kind of code. Still, I would really embrace a real UVD/+/2/3/... functionality.
Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
