What about legitimate uses such as backing up videos (DVD or VCD) that you bought? No piracy involved there.



No video card, either. DVD/VCD don't have to go through the video card
on the way to or from the hard drive. VHS to DVD is another story, but
even then it could go in my bttv card to disk without going through the
video card. DVD to VHS... One word. "Why?"



He's referring to the NVidia cards that do video input; many (most, even) of the recent ones do. If you attempt to record incoming VHS data using the card as an input mechanism, your input will have a big black streak through it, enforced by the NVidia drivers themselves (i.e. not in hardware).


On another note, I vote we please kill this thread or take it off list, unless you have something technical to add about NVidia drivers and FC2 support. These debates about the morality of binary drivers are great and all, but with several hundred something other emails a day on this list from other users genuinely asking for help, they just serve as clutter and impede other legitimate support questions from being answered.
