Ripping Off VOB Files from DVD with vStrip

This section provides a test on trying to rip off media VOB files from movie DVD discs with 'vStrip'.

The next test I did was to try to rip off a media VOB file from a movie DVD.

1. Insert movie DVD "Big Fish" into the DVD drive.

2. Run the vStrip tool:

C:\>copy d:\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.vob \temp
Copy Protection Error - The read failed because the sector is
   encrypted.
        0 file(s) copied.

C:\>\local\vStrip\vStrip d:\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.vob
vStrip - version 0.8f_css, by [maven] (maven@maven.de), CSS-code 
   by R0TfL.

Scanning for stream id's, press control-c to quit...
Saving 0xBF = Private 2 [@LBA 0]
  Found VOB-ID: 01/CELL-ID: 01 [@LBA 0]
Encountered encrypted sector, attempting key recovery [@LBA 1]

* Unable to recover key

Apparently, the DVD is CSS (Content Scramble System) encrypted. vStrip suppose to decrypted it for me automatically. But vStrip failed in this case. Either the "Big Fish" is using a newer technology or my vStrip version is too old.
