Question about updates of AACS Versions.

Post by My1xT »

The changelog when mentioning AACS version updates mentions things like "for the poor people without libredrive"

can someone explain why aacs updates arent needed with libredrive? if a bluray needs new processing keys or whatever, why would just being able to bypass specific drive restrictions and read the disc normally help in any way?

also what's the difference between things like AACS v76 and AACS2, which clearly seem like different versioning schemes

AACS v76 pertains to BD
AACS2 pertains to UHD

LibreDrive and AACS

& I think the entire What is LibreDrive? series is worth a read.
