The author of this website has not been involved in any part with
the creation of software designed to help circumvent DVD protection
schemes or with the 'hacking' of video codecs. While some of the
software found on this website may have the words DeCSS or CSS as
part of their names, it should be made clear that they do not contain
stolen codes and are considered perfectly legal to use for backup
This is not a 'warez' website and as such does not contain pirated
software or illegal video downloads. You will find that all software

The purpose of Nicky Pages' Digital Solutions is to provide detailed
information and step-by-step guides with regards to learning about
all kinds of digital graphic and video authoring or manipulation
techniques. Hence a great deal of these guides contain information
on how one may convert from one format into another; this includes,
but is not limited to, the conversion between VHS, DVD, VCD, SVCD,
MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX ;-) and QuickTime formats.
The laws in most countries will allow the purchaser of any copyrighted
material to legally make a backup copy of that material for their
own personal use. The author of this website would like to make
it clear to the reader that it may be illegal to make copies or
backups of any copyrighted material that you do not own in the country
where you live. It may also be illegal to give others copies of
copyrighted material in any form without the permission of the copyright
holders. Additionally, you may also find that it is illegal in your
country to circumnavigate a video or DVD copy protection scheme
even if it is used solely for backup or 'fair use' purposes. If
you are unsure about the laws of your country the author suggests
you seek professional legal advice before reading these guides.
It should be understood by the reader that the majority of the
Mpeg-4 codecs, including DivX ;-), are altered versions of Microsoft's
Mpeg-4 codec. As a result they can only be used for our own personal
use and cannot be used legally for any commercial or moneymaking
purposes of any kind. The exception to this is the Project Mayo
DivX 4.0 codec. Since there are so many versions of the altered
Mpeg-4 codec around it is your responsibility to make sure that
the version/s you use are used solely for legal purposes.
