But way too much messing around for my liking. I'd rather strip the audio from the rip and replace with DVD audio stream, then you have a permanent fix. Or look for sources that upload files that already have this done.
Most release groups that focus on consoles, and specifically the PS3 have recognized this problem already and upload "Cinavia Free" releases.
But good post for people who are stuck with an infected file and just want to watch it once, and delete, or don't mind going thru those steps, especially if they ripped it themselves.
Other possible....and I have seen this posted numerous times on various forums........
reset your PS3 to factory settings, then don't enable WMA playback
while setting it back up .
Supposedly the Cinavia message ceases to show after doing that. But that might be fixed by a firmware update so try at own risk.
I can't confirm this though as I have way too many files stored on my PS3 250GB Slim to wipe it just to try and see if it works, and I now have thousands of WMA audio files........and I only have 2 movies that have Cinavia protection, both of which I have replaced with working versions.
That being said, good post and thanks for the input
