To prevent the "casual" disc copier, you could try the "scratch" approach.
Basically, add a few hundred MB of useless extra content to your disc (your video will have to be short enough to do this). Then look at the bottom of your disc and deliberately put a pin scratch in the outer edges of the burned section (hopefully this will be the useless extra content section).
The scratch prevents disc copying software from properly reading your disc (but others who are more computer savvy will be able to circumvent this approach). And this doesn't prevent an analog copy of your dvd (like from a dvd player to a VCR).
Hey Peter!!! I'm still using Edit 6.0 for he moment, and its still doing the trick for now. My golf clubs (except the driver) are ten years old, and I still manage to shoot in the low 70s with them too... I'm a creature of habit I guess.
Good to see! My golf is eh ummm.... a little rusty. All my edit stuff has gone, but I still like to hang around and see what happening on the edit forum. I'm all PPro though now, which has been a roller-coaster ride, but there are great advancements coming soon(ish).
Cheers from a wild winter's night. Still dubbing DVD's at 5.00 in the morning... Why can't we ever say no?
Here's my take on copy protection. If people are gonna start copying your work, you, mostly likely, will sell ALOT of copies (and make ALOT on money). putting a scratch on a DVD-R may prevent this but it also puts you in danger of not playing on some players. Don't worry about people copying your stuff - only go with it if you are going to replicate thousands of discs.
