OK, I am trying to figure something out with .mpeg and general media files, but cannot find the answer anywhere. Have posted in many forums, but I think I am just not getting to the places which have experienced and/or knowledgeable users. I have downloaded quite a few video files recently which say they need a license in order for you to view the file. This is a bunch of crap since all of the stuff it requires you to install is malware, hijackers and whatnot. When you open the file, it will say acquiring license and a window will come up. After a while, it will prompt you to install quite a few infected crap like 180Search and whatnot. It is only after having these things installed and running on your computer that you can view the video. I know for a fact that these things were not in the original file, but were added by someone during the distributing process. Since it is possible to add stuff like that in there, then it is certainly possible to go the other way, right? To crack the video file again, extract that out of there and there you go, you have a clean file. Anybody know how to do this? Anyone know of a website which would cover this?
