There's A 4K HDR Blu-Ray Rip Out In The Wild

By Gizmodo Australia on at

But don't get too excited. It's Smurfs 2.

First reported by Torrentfreak, this is pretty big news in the downloading-shit-without-paying-for-it community. 4K Blu-rays' AACS 2.0 encryption has survived decoding until now and was thought to be unbreakable. Hosted on private tracker website UltraHDClub, though — as well as UHDClub's competitor IPT — the Smurfs 2 torrent is being touted as the "first Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in (sic) the net!"

The 53.3GB download has been confirmed to be a full copy of the Smurfs 2 4K Blu-ray disc including the HDR encoding for the video file, which sets it apart from the swathe of 'HDR' rips out there — which are basically recordings of a screen playing back a 4K HDR movie, lacking the per-display luminance settings that set a proper HDR video file apart from the crowd.
