I refuse to use Netflix or one of these other mass data mining video streaming services. I installed #HandBrake and the libdvdcss library and started ripping my DVD's and copy them to my OpenELEC box. All this #DRM on DVD's is making this very annoying but it works so far.

@mjjzf I don't mean to be a dick but TV4Ever not free (as in freedom) software and the website links to the Chrome webstore for download. But thanks for the tip.
@ericbuijs Oh. just wait until you start ripping blurays, particularly TV shows. On a DVD, the episodes are almost always in playlist order. On a bluray, they're in any order, can be duplicate entries in the index. Also full of ghost entries designed to fool autoripping software.
@sungo Luckily I invested very little in blueray discs. I'm glad it's a dead end although streaming services that took it's place aren't any better or probably even worse.
@ericbuijs Blurays are far from a dead end. Just like you can still buy DVDs all these years after the industry moved on, blurays will continue shipping for a long long time.
@sungo Oh I just noticed the new ones even outsell the DVD's in 2018. All these poor buyers.
