New Rifftrax On Demand: Coffeehouse Rendezvous

DRM-FREE.

Okay, so go buy it.

What? Need more? Okay, fine. There’s a new On Demand short, featuring Mike, Bill, and Kevin. I have no idea what it’s about, other than that coffeehouses are somehow involved. Will there be hippies? Let’s hope so. Speaking of things hippies like, the short is, as I implied, DRM-free. When you buy it, you’ll have access to the DRMy DivX version, but you’ll also get the mp3, iPod- and Zune-compatible versions, and an MPEG-2 file, just like the previous DRM-free release.

They’re paying attention to the sales numbers over at Rifftrax, so if you want DRM-free releases in the future, keep buying them up, and don’t pirate them instead. Remember what that tights-wearing cry-baby said: “With great power comes great responsibility.” Use your files wisely.

  1. Actually, the DivX version isn’t DRM’d at all, just like The Terrible Truth. It’s just a plain-old DivX encoded video file.

  2. I was under the impression that DivX files were tied to the DivX player like they’ve always been, thus they’re DRMed. If someone from Rifftrax will clarify this for me, I’ll update the post.

  3. Well, I’m able to play the file using Totem and MPlayer on Linux, as well as on a standalone MPEG4 player/recorder hooked up to my television, so it’s definitely not tied to the DivX player.

  4. Hmm. Interesting.

  5. The DRM-Free divx files are just like they say, DRM-Free. You can encode in Divx without using their DRM, but their VOD service/streaming, require their drm protection.

    The regular Divx file can be used on any platform that supports it, as the user mentioned above. I believe ps3 and xbox360 both recently introduced support for the format, but not with DRM.

  6. Thanks for clearing that up. My experience with DivX is somewhat limited.
