You may not be familiar with DVD UOPs, but you've probably experienced movie trailers, commercials, FBI warnings and other copyright warnings that cannot be skipped while watching a DVD. The following article will explain the root cause and how to remove DVD UOPs protection so as to make it easier to watch DVDs without annoying distractions.

What's 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 and fast-forwarded. It only shows a prohibition sign on the screen even you press the remote control. At this point, everyone would just yell: what's the hell 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 to skip 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 methods to bypass and remove UOPs protection from DVD.

An Unexpected Trick to Bypass and Skip Movie Previews on DVD

FBI Warning DVDFBI Warning DVD

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

However, if you still use the 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 of your remote control then followed by PLAY button, that is, STOP > Play. If it doesn't work, press the STOP button twice or thrice, then press PLAY button, namely, STOP > STOP > Play or STOP > STOP > STOP > Play. Generally, it will skip the DVD copyright warning and head to movie's main menu or play the movie immediately. If doesn't work anyhow, you have to turn to the second solution below.
