DVD-Audio's encryption method has been thwarted, and DVD-Audio discs can now be reencoded to other formats.

It was not long ago that DVD-Audio playback software came to the PC. For example Creative's SoundBlaster Audigy 2 comes with a DVD-Audio as well as WinDVD 's DVD-Audio add-on. So, rather than try to compromise the DVD-Audio's encryption itself, someone has succeeded in making a patch that uses WinDVD to perform the decryption and playback, but instead pipes the decrypted audio output to the hard drive instead of the sound card. The patch which includes several tools requires WinDVD 5, 6 or 7 to work.
Note that it's not a DeCSS-style full hack, but rather a workaround which extracts the audio from WinDVD itself.

Still, it's interesting.
