WMVHD DRM Work-around for South Africa

After months of trying I have FINALLY managed to play my copy of Terminator 2 Extreme Edition in 1080p here in South Africa. That stupid “Phone-Home” DRM they use, which has up to now been very hard to work around has been giving me grey hair. I have tried hundreds of proxies in the USA. Some were too anonymous, some not anonymous enough. I always got busted. Tonight, I finally found one that works. Drop me a line if you want it. I’m not going to post it just incase it gets picked up somehow and messed up. There is a version of T2 WMVHD available on the net to download which has the DRM stripped out. It’s big though.

I predict this annoying trend of Digital Rights Management, in which the makers of the content decide how and when and where you play the disk you bought for a lot of money is going to get worse and worse. I posted previously about my annoyance and boycot of Sony due to their practice of CD protecting. Turns out they used a rootkit to do this, and are being sued for violation of privacy. Good! To make matters worse, there is a virus out that makes use of this piece of un-removable software. Way to go Sony! They have recalled the CD’s and appologised for this indescretion. I think they have also released a special removal tool. Or maybe that was Mark Russinovich. Not sure.

I will continue to fight the power of corporations who are determined to force me into their stupid rules.

EDIT:  I have had a lot of queries abou the proxy that works for this.  The first one I found has since stopped working, but I found the following one which works at the moment:

65.100.114.147 : 8080

    Hi there. I’m in the UK and I can’t play the bleedin’ T2 WMVHD either. Could you please let me know what proxy you found that worked, or where the de-DRMed version is? I’ve done the usual searches. Much appreciated.
