A freeware software program developed by Lightning UK! that enabled any user to create copies of almost any DVD circumventing most copy protection and view the files or make backups. The last release of DVD Decrypter was 22.214.171.124 before the developer abruptly stopped developing the program after receiving a cease and desist letter.
The rights to this program have since then been acquired by Macrovision Europe. After this acquisition, the company changed the programs distribution rights and made the program illegal to download and obtain from any third-party company or website. Although this program can still be located on some sites and mirrors, Computer Hope cannot legally make this program available through its website.
