Yes. We speak alien here because it gives us goosebumps and thrills.

This has nothing to do with anything. Nor does it answer the question.

I want to be as nice as possible here. Start fresh for us if you will. One question at a time.

Please ask a question and I will give you an honest answer.

OK good because none of the fluffy responses or explanations say anything about how HDCP actually applies to the end user.

I have a computer with DVD drive, video card, DVI monitor, and VGA monitor.
I have a movie that it is an AVI file in my computer.
If I plug in my VGA monitor, it plays fine.
If I plug in my DVI monitor, it plays fine.

If instead of an AVI file, I insert a DVD movie. Same result.
If I film something with my camcorder. I can plug my camcorder into my computer, and acheive the same result. Everything plays fine.

When and how would HDCP come into play in any of these scenarios?

It is only part of HD video commercially available that you pay for. Not as part of an AVI "rip", user-recorded footage, DVDs or anything like that.

If you have the correct hardware and are trying to play HDCP-protected content, you wouldn't notice because all the decrypting goes on behind-the-scenes - invisible to the end user.

Brother,
You need to calm your tone down a little.
None of your posted activities have anything to do with HDCP stuff.
If you bought a Bluray/HD-DVD and try to play it on your computer, which is connected to your monitor, then both your card and TV must be HDCP compliant, else you'd have problems. Ripped bluray movies have already circumvented HDCP protection.

I told myself I wasn't going to respond to any more of crimson's posts, but at the risk of being banned/reprimanded, he also needs to learn how to read.

Calling our posts "fluffy responses" is nonsensical given the "questions" he asked!

This is the thanks we get from him for trying to help.

I'm out

Peace

What tone? Anyway.

You mentioned Blueray being HDCP? But not avi files? What does it mean? So DVDs and avi files have nothing to do with HDCP? What does blue-ray have to do with it? Is Blueray and HDDVD HDCP compliant? What makes it so?

I think you should hire a computer science professor to explain if you haven't picked up on the facts yet. Why are you so set on making somethine so trivial into something so difficult?

Real advice: relax and enjoy your pc for everything it's capable of doing.
