The movies i have been trying to play on my device has not been working and the "Cinavia" message pops up. i can play it on my computer just fine with Vlc media player, Vuze HD Player. its obviously not in the video, so y not try using windows movie maker and saving it as your OWN movie or convert it to a diffrent file format such as M-PEG 4 video format. i do not have the time to do this so please get back to me if it works
Container format has nothing to do with whether or not Cinavia is present.
Cinavia is a watermark technology embedded into the audio streams of certain copyrighted movies.
It is highly technical and cannot be defeated by simply remuxing or re-encoding the video. Re-encoding the audio streams does not help neither.
There are only a few ways around Cinavia.
1) Have a device that does not have the software to recognize Cinavia infected movies. I have an old Panasonic DMP BD-60 with it's original firmware. Because it doesn't have the technology to recognize Cinavia code, it is unaffected by it. As long as I keep the firmware original, and only use that BluRay player for problem movies, I have a permanent way around it.
As well, the Xbox 360 is not affected by it.....I have a PS3 and a 360. I can simply switch to my 360 when I come across an "infected file"
Here is a list of movies that are "infected", as well as devices that have the software....and ones that don't as of yet, and firmwares listed as well........... From SlySoft forums.....http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=41885
2) Use a HTPC. As of yet, no software media players have been reported as affected by Cinavia code. That's why it works with VLC and others.
3) Remux the file with DVD "non-infected" audio streams from the same movie. Technical, and sometimes doesn't work out. Means needing two copies of the same movie to create a BluRay rip with DVD audio. Sony is now starting to embed Cinavia in the audio in the DVD versions of their infected movies to stop this practice.
4) Hunt for Cinavia free files. Many scene groups are releasing "Cinavia Free" versions.
5) DVDFab forums has a claim that you can use their program, but it seems complicated. Not sure about it.
