Cinavia is a very powerful copy protection technology found on most Blu-ray discs and players.It is a very powerful copy protection technology.Content that is protected by Cinavia cannot be illegally copied or played on non-certified players.
First of all, let's take a closer look at what exactly Cinavia is. I already mentioned at the beginning, but Cinavia is used mainly for Blu-rayStrong copy guard technologyand was developed by Verance. It is an effective countermeasure against illegal activities such as filming movie screenings in theaters or on airplanes with a video camera, or copying Blu-ray data and uploading it to the Internet.
Cinavia's copy protection is based on awatermark embedded in the audio data of a video and a player that can detect Cinavia.watermark and a player that can detect Cinavia. For example, if you put a watermark in the data for showing in a movie theater, when you try to play it on a home player that is not designed for the theater, the player will detect Cinavia and prevent you from playing it.
From the perspective of copyright protection, the Cinavia detection function has been included in all players that can play Blu-ray as well as Blu-ray discs since 2012, and has also been adopted by game consoles such as PlayStation.
If you try to play Cinavia-protected content on a non-approved player, a warning message will appear on the screen and the audio will be muted or stopped mid-play. The same error message will appear if you try to copy the content to a non-approved device.
There are many kinds of copy protection.Cinavia is said to be one of the most powerful.The fact that it is embedded in the data stored on the Blu-ray disc, but also works on the audio recorded by the camcorder playing the video, shows how good it is.
However, this is not a problem at all when you play and watch Blu-ray for home use or rental on a home Blu-ray player.
Maybe some of you may think that you want to remove Cinavia or play Cinavia protected Blu-ray. In that case, you can try the following methods.
As mentioned above, the ability to detect Cinavia has only been available on Blu-ray players sincesince 2012.So, if your player was released before that, there is a possibility that it can play Cinavia protected discs. There are still some players that don't have Cinavia firmware, but they are very expensive.
Since the copy protection embedded in Cinavia's audio does not disappear even if the file is converted, it is not possible to remove it even if you edit the audio editor a little, but there is a non-zero possibility that you can remove Cinavia's protection by editing the audio. However, it will be tough for the person who is not accustomed to using the audio editor though it will not be impossible for the person who has deep knowledge in this field. If you are a beginner, it would be easiest to use a software that can remove Cinavia.
DVD-Ranger CinEx HD is thethe only tool that can remove Cinavia for a long time.You may know it, too. The official software is only available in English, but unofficial Japanese patches are also distributed.
Although DVD-Ranger CinEx HD can be downloaded at a low price, how to use it is complicated compared with other software, and after reading the data of Blu-ray, it is necessary to use it from the database in the software. After importing the Blu-ray data, you need to find the data of the movie you imported from Blu-ray in the database of the software.
In addition, unlike the other software introduced here, the sound quality after removing Cinavia will be lower, and if the movie has other guards than Cinavia at the same time, only Cinavia can be removed.
