DVDFab Passkey Lite is a Windows-based driver that works on the fly to unprotect encrypted movie DVDs and Blu-ray discs.
The application was developed to be a free version of Passkey. It is a simple combination of Passkey for DVD and Passkey for Blu-ray. It is not anymore a versatile and powerful decryption tool with some DVD/Blu-ray protections out of its domain. However, you can still freely watch any DVD and use other software to access unprotected DVD/Blu-ray content.
It can still decrypt protected DVDs and Blu-rays, but not for all of them. For example, it cannot remove AACS V12+, BD+, BDAV, and AVCREC for Blu-ray, so you cannot watch movies with those protections in place. It doesn't support CPRM for DVD, and PathPlayer is not enabled, so ARccOS, RipGuard, FluxDVD, and CORE X2 can't be removed. As a result, you can't copy those still protected DVDs, but you can freely watch them.
What adds punch to Passkey is it can work with all the software that works with Passkey for DVD and Passkey for Blu-ray. You are enabled to use these apps to play/copy/rip the unprotected DVD/Blu-ray discs.
Features for DVDFab Passkey Lite:
Remove part of DVD/Blu-ray protections:
The DVD protections Passkey Lite can remove are CSS, CPPM, RC, RCE, APS, and UOPs. CPRM, ARccOS, RipGuard, FluxDVD, CORE X2, etc., are omitted. For Blu-ray, it can handle AACS V10, RC, BD-Live, and UOPs.
Freely watch any DVD with no region limit:
It's true, Passkey Lite can't get rid of all DVD protections; if you want to copy/burn/clone DVD, you need to use Passkey for DVD. However, you can freely watch any DVD with no region limit on your region-specific player.
Work with other software to access DVD/Blu-ray content:
Can work with any software that Passkey for DVD and Passkey for Blu-ray works with to help you access unprotected DVD/Blu-ray content for playback or editing.
