By allowing this, you can then backup the movie using a DVD backup tool such as CloneDVD and CloneDVD mobile. You can also remove the RPC region code, making the movie region free and viewable on any DVD player and any DVD player software.
It can remove unwanted movie features, including subtitles and prohibition messages such as copyright and FBI warnings. It also allows you to launch an external application whenever you insert or remove a disc or prevent 'PC-friendly software from automatically launching when you insert a video DVD.
