Overview of Passkey for Blu-ray ($60)

DVDFab Passkey for Blu-ray is powerful in decryption. Any copy protections and region code are in no mean any barriers in front of it. With its fast reading process and strong decrypting ability, you can watch your protected Blu-ray in no time.
If you are not content with just watching them, then you can use other compatible software to edit them, such as copy, clone, burning, etc.
And, it's the most easy-to-use software you've ever met in fact. You can finish all the process intuitively, even no need to click or tap when it's running. You will be impressed!


Overview of Passkey for DVD ($40)

DVDFab Passkey for DVD is a great DVD decrypter, which can remove all the DVD protections on the go and let you get rid of region code troubles to help you freely watch any DVD without any limit and without any wait.
Not enough! Besides the "freely enjoy any DVD" feature, it can also work with numerous software to let you access the unprotected DVD content then copy, burn, clone, rip, convert them or do any editing you wish.
Passkey for DVD is really easy to operate. Almost everything is finished automatically, you don't even need to do any clicking. The reading speed is very fast, all decryption work can be done within seconds.


Overview of Passkey Lite (free)

Passkey Lite is a free and a simple two-in-one version of Passkey for DVD and Passkey for Blu-ray, and supports part of the functions they have.
It can still decrypt protected DVD and Blu-ray, but not for all of them. For example, it can't remove AACS V12+, BD+, BDAV, and AVCREC for Blu-ray, so you are not allowed to watch movies with those protections. It doesn't support CPRM for DVD, and PathPlayer is not enabled, so ARccOS, RipGuard, FluxDVD, and CORE X2 can't be removed. As a result, you can't copy those still protected DVDs , but you are able to freely watch them.
What adds punch to Passkey Lite is it can work with all the software that Passkey for DVD and Passkey for Blu-ray works with. You are enabled to use these apps to play/copy/rip the unprotected DVD/Blu-ray discs.

I've owned and used DVDFab Passkey (with a lifetime license) for about 3 weeks. I've listed all ratings in the middle of the range because when it works it works well, but I have had it fail to read four 2 to 3 year old BD's. At this time I wish I had gone with AnyDVD HD even though it costs more.

Installed DVDFabPasskey8045 over a previous install. I have no key it was just to test trial mode for a dvd. After the install it requested a reboot which I did. When the system rebooted I got a protection error and it pointed to this program. I just closed the message box and continued and then got the blue screen of death "blah blah to protect your system". Upon a hard reboot I got the message saying window recovered from a serious error ...... again it blamed this program. This never happened with the previous versions but I was certainly a few versions out of date. Uninstalled it all, deleted temp files and cleaned my registry so don't have any further info.

btw) My ratings are meaningless

I don't think it's better than AnyDVD, yet. It's still a working progress.

Hi everybody! I have been testing Pass key since the very first version. I have been sampling with DVD's only because I refuse to buy another blu-ray rom (it broke) and it's products because of the high cost involved and allot of people believe that blu-ray will eventually die as DVD lives on. I have been ripping with Nero 8,9 and (10) which is Multimedia suite. No problems now with older movies since this new version was released which is great.
I rated 9 for value of money and 8 as an over all score because I have no idea how Nero will respond with ripping & recoding blu-ray. I am waiting for higher quality Blu-ray burners to drop in price here in Canada although I do have my eye on HP's sexy slim line USB Blu-ray burner for notebooks.

Hi Backpain, why don't you point out the problem in detail?

Hi mail2tom, for your problem, it's same for AnyDVD, and you can exclude the drive which will do burning from Passkey to solve it.

I guess the programmers are patting them self's on the back for bad software. I am glad that some one else has problems with it.

I gave DVDFab Passkey Beta/Lite a try and had a interesting problem come up that may or may not be associated with the program. Up until the time I installed Passkey I had no problem burning and verifying Blu-Ray compilations I had created with MultiAVCHD and burned with ImgBurn. Once I installed Passkey all my burns would fail verification. After I uninstalled Passkey all my disks would pass verification. The disks I used before and after were all from the same package of disks, and I would find it strange that 5 disks, consecutively packed, would be bad. Coincidence?

Hi Backpain,

We are developers of Passkey.

In our testing, Passkey outperforms AnyDVD in many areas. Please read our blog:

http://blog.dvdfab.com/dvdfab-passkey-always-gets ... ience.html

And the most important thing, in my option, is Passkey need less resources than AnyDVD. As a program always running in the background, I think it's the critical issue.

Let me compare both for you:

Setup File Size DVDFab(1.9MB) AnyDVD(6.2MB)
Memory Usage DVDFab(~2MB) AnyDVD(~8MB)

It's tested on my Windows 7 64-bit OS.

Best Regards,
Fengtao

Caused Windows 7 to have many issues with other programs and did not work as stated by the programmers. Have been using AnyDVD from the very beginning. I will stick with AnyDVD and will stop using this poor functioning software.

So far, Passkey is working great. While still free I would use it in place of AnyDVD even though Passkey seems to require twice the memory as AnyDVD (12MB as opposed to 6MB for AnyDVD on my laptop). Unless the memory footprint decreases, I would continue to use AnyDVD as soon as Passkey is out of beta and payment is required, though. But Passkey still seems to be a great piece of software, except for the memory footprint.

I've been critical in the past of DVDFab and DVDFabHDDecrypter for various reasons. Now I'd like to make amends. PassKey is IMO every bit as good as AnyDVDHD. I haven't yet found a Blu-Ray disc it can't handle, some of the discs tested having recent protections. When it becomes payware, if it is priced sensibly (i.e. less than AnyDVDHD), this will be the better choice.

Passkey works great with all transcoders or if you want to drag and drop.
Passkey(beta) is a free alternative to the expensive AnyDVD, I'm sure Fengtao will eventually make a pay version but I will gladly pay for it.

I tried an earlier version with DVD Shrink but it wouldn't work. There were no operating instructions for it that I could find.

Then I tried to rip a recently released DVD movie with DVDFab6 which caused an error, but there was no error when DVD Passkey 7.0.1.0 was activated. So it looks like they're concentrating on DVD Passkey to handle the latest protections.

PassKey will work with DVDShrink, however, you need to disable PathPlayer in the settings. you will get a couple of messages that you can disregard when using Shrink. I would recommend you allow PathPlayer when not using Shrink.

I tried it out on a tough movie only rip (Surrogates) and it worked. DVDShrink wouldn't work with it but Ripit4me (DVDDecrypter) worked fine as the ripping tool. I think the authors are moving in the right direction.

Using it for several days now and it is working fine. It will mature and be a big competitor for Slysoft before long. But for now it does have a way to go to get there.

Works similar to anydvd. I used this in conjunction with the old free dvd decrypter to remove the protection from a recent commercial dvd and rip it to my hard drive. Also let me play my commercial dvd with vlc. Works as expected. Free right now while it's in beta.
