Digital DVDs

I've tried downloading Digital DVDs onto the playbook, but they wont play because it is a protected file.  Is there an app available to sort this problem out ?

Re: Digital DVDs

Thanks for the suggestion.  The file type was .wmv so should be fine once the protection issue is sorted.

 

Would be good if BlackBerry sorted out a proper app though 

 

I'll try your suggestion, cheers

Re: Digital DVDs

I purchased a DRM Remover and it seems to work well, allowing file conversions at the same time.

 

The Playbook seems a bit tempremental about playing some .wmv files and not other .wmv files, but apart from that everything seems fine,

 

Thanks for your help with this one

Re: Digital DVDs

Try FreeMake use the BlackBerry presets scroll down to find one for the PlayBook.

It will convert to mp4 at the same aspect ratio and resolution.
