    Hello everyone,

    I, like many people, hate it when you can't skip straight to a DVD's menu, but are forced to watch all the FBI-warnings and anti-pirating commercials. If I downloaded the DVD they have cut these warning, yet if I buy them I have to go through up to three minutes of whining. It's called UOP: User Operation Prohibited and it's freaking annoying.

    I hear a lot of people complaining about this, so I gathered there MUST be some way around this. I know it's possible to rip the DVD to your disk and remove the UOP in the process... But, is there some freeware that is capable of playing store-bought DVDs while ignoring the UOP-tags?

    Thanks for any tips,
    RarelyEvil.

    AnyDVD but it's not freeware. Maybe possible using some free player like vlc, smplayer or kmplayer.

    A third party firmware update such as the kind installed on my Pioneer allows me to skip UOPs.

    Thanks for the tips guys!

    I'll try the players and go Google some more for firmware.

  5. Oppo players can skip right to the menu or the movie.
