Internet Connection and Decryption

Post by Chris Kelly »

I know an internet connection is required with AnyDVDHD, but is an internet connection required when decrypting DVDs, Blu-rays, and 4K UHD Blu-rays with MakeMKV?

no not unless the key for the 4k disk you are ripping is not currently downloaded to the hashed key file

Hmmm ... Since MakeMKV can decrypt for playing in VLC, this might make the BU40N a nice PORTABLE PLAYBACK solution for my laptop as long as I get a SATA 3 to Type C kit. But as far as ripping, we'll continue that one at the other thread--😊.
