Encrypted DVDs hold scrambled data which can’t be easily played by any random media player. Commercially produced DVDs have some type of encryption which is used to prevent illegal copying and disc cloning. There are two types of DRM schemes used by DVDs today which are “Content Protection for Recordable Media (CPRM)”, or by “Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)” in the “Advanced Access Content System (AACS)” DRM scheme. If someone owns such a DVD that he/she may choose to make a copy of it. But the copy process is a little bit tricky, though a free video downloader works well.

You can’t just directly copy an encrypted DVD if you do so all you will see is scrambled data. You first have to decrypt that DVD and for this, you will need a special DVD decryption software. A DVD decryption software will decrypt an encrypted DVD and help you copy or rip legally. So in this article, we will discuss best DVD decrypter freeware for Windows 10 namely DVDFab DVD Copy, DVDFab DVD Ripper, and DVDFab HD Decrypter.
