AACS 2.0

Post by troyBORG » Sun Jan 01, 2017 6:58 pm

Is there anyway we can help them crack AACS 2.0?
Is there something like BOINC we can install on our PC to help them run codes to try and crack it?

I have a 21:9 monitor, and normal blu-rays are only 1920:800 or so, they have to scale up to 2560:1080 for me.
But if I could play my 4k movies on my PC.... Or for people with 3440:1440 monitors it be even nicer.

Not sure what help we can provide unless someone here is a software engineer skilled in encryption development. That would absolutely not be me :lol: .

I think we're just going to have to be patient on this one and let MakeMKV (or more likely the folks at RedFox) work their magic.

First off a 21:9 monitor is 2520:1080, if the vertical dimension is 1080. Secondly, all mainstream Blu-rays are 1920:1080. The 1920:800 you are seeing is the result of the movie being 2.40:1. The actual video being sent to the monitor is 1920:1080. If the monitor is set correctly, said movies should have letterboxed black bars and pillarbar black bars. For true 1920:1080 content, then you will only have the pillarbars.

OK, for those 2.40:1 movies, then having the monitor expand the 1920 to 2520, will result in the vertical dimension being upscaled to 1050, which will still result in letterbox bars. You will never fill the screen vertically and keep the correct aspect ratio.

Does all of this make sense?
