dvd players not playing bootlegs
    #7576433 - 10/30/07 02:10 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

someone told me that the cheaper the dvd player the more likely they will play bootlegs. (in their experience, anyway)

ive bought 2 players in the past weedk which dont play burnt dvdr(w)s

is this a trend with players nowadays? where can i find one that will play everything i put in it?

I've found the opposite to be true. Newer, more brand-name models WILL Play bootlegs and burnt DVD's while the cheaper ones usually don't.

You can find a Multi-format playing DVD player just about anywhere now, Frys, best buy, circuit city, etc. Wherever they sell electronics usually.

You just have to read the box for what formats it will play.

Look for ones that play DVD-R and DVD+R and you should be able to watch pirated/bootlegged shit as well as DVD's you burn yourself.

ive yet to see one play a dvd-/+ RW, but ive only tried two. Now on dvd-/+R, ive only seen one dvd player that wouldn't play them, and according your logic, your right. The one that wouldn't play them is my dads $300 Sony dvd player with progressive scan, was years back when he bought it though. Now my sister got an apex for free with her tv, it will play anything ive thrown at it, as well as my panasonic and my daughters memorex, all sub $90 players...

peace

Search for the ones  that say DIVX if your trying to play individual AVI movie files off of one DVD.
Mine was 30 bucks at Wal-mart and you don't need to waste time converting to DVD files.

IF your just trying to play a backup DVD then I have no idea what the problem is, they play in just about every DVD player since 2000.
Are you trying to use a PAL DVD in a NTSC?
Scratches on disk?

Hope this helped :rockon:

What type of bootlegs are we talking?

Copied with dvdshrink or some other?

Or full dvdr's downloaded offline?

Or are we talking xvid avi's downloaded and just burned to a disc without software like nero vision that will make a menu and author the disc correctly so it works like a dvd bought at a store would?

Divx players are the way to go. I bought a Phillips one for like 30 dollars because it was the floor model, and it plays everything, there's an easy menu hack you can do to change the player to region free

Wow.  Deja-vu.  I remember having this same discussion 25 years ago with VCRs and bootleg copies of VHS movies.

That had an easy solution at the time... record to beta then back to vhs to remove copy protection; at least until they started making macrovision filters.

> What type of bootlegs are we talking?

The correct question to be asking. Without knowing this, any answers are shots in the dark.

Did the burnt DVD's play on any other player or is this the first time you tried playing them? If you've never been able to get them to play on anything it may be that you're not doing it correctly. A lot of new DVD's also have copyright protection on them that requires another program to bypass before burning.
