What Is Cinavia Protection?

To prevent the original content from being copied and pirated, content publishers usually use copy protection methods in their products, including movies, music, and programs. Cinavia is primarily designed for this aim, which functions as an audio watermark in DVDs and Blu-rays.

Now, all commercial Blu-ray players have the Cinavia watermarking detector that can recognize the unauthorized media content of the disc and interrupt the normal playback, such as playback stopped and audio muted.

PS4 certainly comes with the Cinavia detector. If you try to play an unapproved copy of a disc movie or burned disc containing Cinavia-protected content, you will encounter the Cinavia PS4 issue. Many people have claimed they meet this error even when playing movies purchased from official sources.

Next, I’ll show you how to solve this issue with different methods. Keep reading.

How to Bypass Cinavia PS4 for Playing DVDs and Blu-rays?

On PS4, people usually meet playback errors of Cinavia Message Code 1 and Cinavia Message Code 3.

1. For Cinavia Message Code 1, simply skip overCinavia-protected content (e.g. professionally produced content) in the video. Yet, this trick is only practical for homemade discs.

2. For Cinavia Message Code 3, you can switch the audio language to another if the movie has multiple-language audio tracks. Then, play the movie in that language, and the Cinavia message should disappear. After that, you can change the audio language back. This can help you bypass Cinavia protection temporarily for around 10 minutes. When the Cinavia error pops up, reset the audio language again.

3. As the official recommendation, here is another solution to bypass Cinavia message code 3: Pause the currently playing video for 30 seconds, then jump over the sections in which the error occurs or play a different disc video on your PS4 for at least 10 minutes and insert and play the desired video again.

These three methods have proved to be effective many times. However, you may need to carry out the actions several times to finish watching a movie since the error would occur from time to time during the playback. If you want to watch DVDs and Blu-rays on PS4 without interruption, the best solution is to use WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro mentioned in part 2.
