New movies affected by Cinavia

For some reason, the Wikipedia page for Cinavia has stopped adding new movie titles which are affected by the Cinavia error message. I have no idea why, but luckily we use other sources to find the titles for you. This time we turn to the summer releases of 2012, including both DVD and BluRay movies.

The first blockbuster to make the cut is The Wrath of the Titans, which is the follow-up to the first Titans movie, which also had the Cinavia protection inserted. Then it’s on to the comedy genre, we’re we find Project X, a movie which has gotten an amazing low score at Rotten Tomatoes. So you shouldn’t be all too sad if you don’t get to see the movie. A friend of mine did say he liked it, but then he said New Years Eve was pretty good. Then we head on over to the scary movies and we found Mr Harry Potter (not the actual fictive person, but the actor) in The Woman in black. Once more, a movie affected by the Cinavia protection.

How can you stay mad at a movie like this? Cinavia or no cinavia, that suit is awesome.

Eh, and Ghost Rider 2 also has the error. But please, if you’re anxious to see that movie – It’s better to hit your head against the wall several times. Or, that’s what I’ve been told any way. Underworld Awakening, now that’s another story. But not for the actual story, for some reason I don’t care about the plot.

Then we’ve got the new American Pie movie. The horrible, non-return to form, American Reunion. Actually we should be thankful it has the protection. The fewer people who actual see this, the better.

And then we move onto the cinema releases.

Men in black 3
Dark Shadows
Snow white
Rock of Ages

This only includes retail BluRay and DVDs since pirated movies, such as bootlegged CAM versions, aren’t allowed.

We understand the frustration that comes when dealing with the error messages and the confusion it creates, since it only outputs an error message and a URL. There’s also been new reports saying that both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 includes the protection, we’ve yet to confirm if it actually effects both consoles. We’ve seen a lot of complaints on the PS4, but none has appeared on the streaming service which the new Xbox provides. We’ll be updating you throughout on our blog and continue to update the list of movies.

When Media leaks on the internet

Movie leaks & album leaks are a big part of the entertainment industry. But what has been done to prevent them and is it an impossible task?


Throughout the years there have been a lot of discussions regarding piracy’s effect on the entertainment industry. The movie industry has tackled this with copy protection methods and 3D movies. The music industry has also tried numerous copy protection methods but none of which has been successful. Instead, they went after the download sites and services – And didn’t struggled to keep the compact disk format alive. This caused a severe blow to the music industry and left the major labels clueless for many years. While piracy hasn’t been kind to the movie industry, streaming services like Netflix gained success fairly quickly.

Spotify was recently introduced in the US as way for people to get their hands on a large music library – Without having to use torrents or other file sharing sites. Rdio is also an alternative to enable music streams but since Spotify has partnered with Facebook, they are currently the most promising services of the two. But the services doesn’t seem to stop album leaks or other forms of music downloads. And its the same with the movie industry – People recording at the theaters hasn’t stopped. The biggest movie blockbusters are still accessible a day or two after theatrical release. Free album downloads, a thing people take for granted now a days?

So is it impossible to put a stop to movie and album leaks? One interesting new form of release has been to release a movie on demand, and then release it theatrical. This was the case with Tim and Eric’s billion dollar movie, which was put on iTunes movie streaming platform months before its theatrical release. The piracy alternative was suddenly less attractive as the movie was released on the internet before any P2P downloading site or blog had it. It was also presented in HD and unlike the downloading options, it was available to be streamed.

Could this be an interesting idea to try for the music industry as well? We’ve seem some cases were artists release an album to be streamed for free when their album has leaked. Could this be industry standard in a couple of years? It could well be an alternative and might draw attention from album leaks to digital stores such as iTunes.

New movies affected by Cinavia

Here are the most recent Cinavia titles:

  • Courageous
  • Moneyball
  • Higher Ground
  • Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark
Moneyball is the most mainstream movies of the four, as it has Brad Pitt in the leading role. It’s the story of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players. Unfortunately Cinavia also made it into the horror movie “Don’t be afraid of the dark”. While the movie hasn’t received great reviews – A few people will be surprised if they are trying to do back-up copies.

Is it legal to disable Cinavia?

We get a lot of emails from users asking us for Cinavia solutions. It’s quite common people use the term “disable Cinavia” or “bypass Cinavia” but did you know it’s not actually illegal to do any modifications to Cinavia? Disabling a Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection is illegal according to the DMCA.

However, if you own the rights to your movie files, and are allowed to modify its content you should be fine. Verance’s Cinavia was created for the Playstation 3 and BluRay players. This doesn’t mean that you can’t modify your video files as you want to.

There are jailbreaking methods of disabling Cinavia. If you’ve jailbroken your console you can remove the Cinavia files which are incorporated into the movie playback system which the PS3 uses. Although this mostly surely is illegal and will void you warranty. And for those who are unfamiliar to jailbreaks, it isn’t easy to do so since it requires an old firmware version to be installed.

You can read more about DRM protections here.
