Bump. This topic is somehow still being drowned out by people spreading misinformation.

As much as I sympathize, bumping is seriously frowned on by mods around here.  Smiley Sad

 

Let's keep the conversation going, though:

 

What are the negatives to removing this HDCP restriction for Sony?  How can we, as gamers, help to keep those negatives to a minimum?

I updated the post with some more valuable information near the bottom.

 

It's too bad bumping is frowned on, but it should be on a case-by-case basis and not a general rule. Topics that are spreading misinformation and asking the wrong questions are getting more replies and far more traffic than this one which is loaded with nothing but facts. I'd hate to see it go down the drain because troll topics get more hits.

 

As far as negatives to removing the HDCP block, I actually just covered that with the updated information. It's under A couple more key points... near the bottom.

 

There really isn't any negatives! That's the confusing part.

Okay, then, each time you update, post the update as a reply, and note that is is also a part of the OP.  That's how we handle it in the PS4 Everything thread. 

 

Problem solved.

You don't see possible copyright liability as a negative for Sony?

 

They have to tread thin lines with HDCP, as PS4 has some powerful Movie and TV Streaming options.

Like I said in the OP...

 

Executives implemented HDCP to prevent ripping. Yet HDCP strippers do indeed exist and, essentially, anyone who has the desire to bypass HDCP in order to rip Blu-Rays WILL, unfortunately, find a way. HDCP is a roadblock for the people who DON'T want to use the PS4 for nefarious purposes. We just wanna capture gameplay the way we've always captured it! The importance of having that raw video file at your command cannot be overstated. It's important. And it wouldn't be very efficient to have to use a USB thumb drive or external hard drive to get the files from the PS4's HDD to an editing platform. Please, do not try and convince me that PS4's built-in editing application is as robust as Sony Vegas!

 

Again, there are no negatives. If there were negatives, why would all of Sony's competition be allowing it? =\

Why would you think I had not read the topic?

 

I posted the vid for people to see how it will be done for sure, it is relavent.

 

You had not posted the vid so I did.

 

I get you want HDMi capture, but your messge did not go far enough in my opinion to show this confirmed truth.

 

Anyone reading this will likely be glad to know PS4 can actually upload to twitch, youtube, etc straight from the horses mouth.

 

Everything else is speculation IMO.
