View Full Version : playing dvd on a lan

09-05-2002, 22:08
I have a DVD-ROM installed on a computer in a small LAN, and I wish to view DVD movies using this remote DVD.

The only way that I can make this, is ripping the entire DVD and copying it to my computer through the LAN, but I don't have disk space to do that.

If anyone knows a DVD-player program that overrides the copy protection of the DVD, I could use that to watch a DVD movie direct from the remote DVD-ROM, instead of copying the files...

Does anyone can help me?

im too lazy to try it, but can you share the drive ? or does the encryption prevent this......im thinkin it would work.

I can share the drive, but I can't read the files because of the copy protection. I need a player-program that overrides this protection.
