    I know where it made at vtpeters but you forget that if the Chinese governments get enough pressure then that the end of there party.
    I don't think China will be easily pressured by foreigners into doing anything they don't want themselves.

    Besides, any country that Redfox resides in can also be pressured into taking down Redfox. The risk of being taken down is not exclusive to DVDFab...

    There are domains out there that are probably much more resistant to complying with official pressure than is China. (Tongo ?) Sort of "anything goes" zones. But we have also seen that some ISPs have been willing to do selective blocking.

    Isn't a lot of the streaming also encrypted, though ? But there is a tremendous amount of "Web-DL" material constantly being released. So, I'm not too clear on just how the "scenesters" are managing that ?

    Even if you are only backing up discs you own, you may have noticed that things like 2018 Sony releases have been failing miserably on current Fab and MakeMKV versions. (On the Redfox too ?? I wouldn't know.) The procedure just quits at an early stage. So, it looks like some of the latest protection schemes have the upper hand, at least for the moment.

    I wouldn't say streaming is killing ripping, I have no problems at all with Sony's newest releases with using AnyDVD HD.

    However, since DVDFab is a Chinese company, things are different. They too will gladly take the few million from Hollywood, but DVDFab will find a way to take the money and still sell the product.
    Incredible, I just purchased the product a couple of months back. It was an extraordinary bit of programming that functioned admirably with VLC.

    They should simply move to another nation like DVDfab did.

    AnyDVD moved to a 'neutral' country some time ago.

    Yes, but various warnings here about successor company Redfox and their business practices.
    (Maybe ditto for Fab, if those comments about 3rd. party processing and a possible turning over of subscription lists has any validity. I don't really know, but it raises a red flag, at least for me.)

    Fortunately, MakeMKV seems to be back on stride, after some serious bugs in the previous version.

    Much of this gets to be academic, in light of the pervasiveness and near-comprehensiveness of the Scene Release downloads thing. Not particularly difficult, once you get accustomed to who may be the best source for what. It may be somewhat iffy to mention that here, but despite the fact that I already subscribe to and pay for a huge amount of content, it is a great convenience to have an alternate access to it, with the commercials and other tacked-on crap removed, or if I missed something that was shown and the subscribers' On Demand section does not happen to include it. (A couple programs I can think of are only broadcast here in SD res., and they look like ****.) If you saw my monthly satellite + streaming bills, you would choke ! Content can't even begin to say I'm not paying my freight.
