I belong to the Router Forums, a wood router woodworking forum. One of the members has secured a deal to obtain 14 seasons, 75 hrs, of the old Router Workshop series at less than $10 a season. The problem is the protection scheme they use is non conventional. The episodes are contained individually in “protected WMV” format in an .EXE file (container). When you purchase you send a machine ID from the computer you will use for viewing and they send a “key” that is installed in, I assume, the registry. The key is then calculated each time one of the episodes is launched and cross checked with the key that was installed. I have to take pity on the guys having to go to such lengths to protect their property but it has me in a pinch. I want the vid’s but I want them on the HUB.
Here’s a link to the Router Workshop site which has the deal and the details.
