What's the DVD UOPs Protection?

When you can't wait to take out the DVD disc and put it on the tray for watching, you're forced to browse through some DVD piracy warnings, trailers, and ads that cannot be skipped or fast-forwarded. It only shows a prohibition sign on the screen even when you press the remote control. At this point, everyone would just yell: what the hell is going on? Actually, it's all about DVD UOPs.

DVD UOP, aka DVD PUO, refers to the User Operation Prohibition or Prohibited User Operation, which is a kind of DVD DRM protection technology to prevent the viewer from skipping some anti-piracy notices, previews, and other stuff. I don't think anyone will sit through all of these garbage time patiently. Next, I will introduce the tried-and-true methods to bypass and remove UOPs protection from DVD for good.

An Unexpected Trick to Bypass and Skip Movie Previews on UOP DVDs

FBI Warning DVDFBI Warning DVD

Virtually, some DVD players will ignore the UOP flag and allow users to control over DVD playback automatically. Even, newer DVD players will automatically generate DVD chapters for those DVDs lacking navigation commands.

However, if you still use an old DVD player and have long agonized over the annoying endless titles, you may try this trick: when the first ad, trailer or copyright declaration appears, press the STOP button on your remote then the PLAY button, that is, STOP > Play. If it doesn't work, press the STOP button twice or thrice, then press the PLAY button, namely, STOP > STOP > Play or STOP > STOP > STOP > Play. Generally, it will skip the DVD copyright warning and head to the movie's main menu or play the movie immediately. If doesn't work anyhow, you have to turn to the second solution below.

At last...

Honestly, I recommend the second method to remove the Prohibited User Operation permanently. More than that, you can convert and back up DVD collection to digital format for convenient playback and archiving on computer, NAS, portable devices. Bid farewell to the cumbersome DVD disks and DVD player, manage your digital movie library orderly and intelligently.
