FindVUK tool - get VUK of all Blurays supported by DVDfab applications

A few words of introduction:

As we all know there's no chance to free the Bluray format as it happened with the DVD.
There are no working processing keys available anymore and even if it would, they would get revoked within a short period of time.

The only thing that is forever (at least for AACS) is the VUK (Volume Unique Key).

About february 2014 I got my first raspberry pi, connected a usb-bluray drive and tried to play a few blurays but simply got disappointed: apart from the problem that the first pi was simply not fast enough to handle the usb-bluray and the decoding I also ran into the problem that the necessary library 'libaacs' needs a VUK for each Bluray to decode it properly - but those keys are only available for older Blurays as the newer ones cannot be decrypted any longer because of the missing processing keys....
Usually 'MakeMKV' is a quite good replacement for libaacs under linux - but it's not available for ARM devices and so it's no solution for the raspberry pi (and it's still not available for arm until now).

A few weeks ago I stumbled across this post here http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=230493 and started thinking about the VUK problem again.

I already asked the MakeMKV developer in the past to output the VUK so it can be used on arm devices - but he replied that it's too complicated to get the vuk from his tool.

But than I got hands on another tool called 'DVDfab Passkey' and noticed an interesting line in it's logfile:
Quote:
0m 58.68s: got vuk
So I posted a feature request in their forum to write the VUK into the logfile - but until now I've got no reply to it.

But I discovered another way to get the VUK from Passkey: create a memory dump after decrypting and read it from the dump

How you can 'find the VUK' manually (without FindVUK):

Basically the steps are quite easy:
  • start a DVDfab application (Passkey, MediaPlayer or DVDfab9)
  • insert a bluray
  • in case you're using MediaPlayer start the playback
  • in case of Passkey or DVDfab9: wait until the analyzing finishes
  • create a memory dump with e.g. the windows task manager
  • open the dump with a hex editor and search for the discid (it can be found in the logfile of passkey)
  • and a few bytes later you'll find the vuk in the file

What FindVUK does:

As the manual way isn't that funny I've created a tool that does everything automatically - it watches the logfile of the used DVDfab application to get relevant information about the bluray, creates the dump with the help of the sysinternals tool 'procdump', extracts the VUK from the dump and finally validates it against the bluray - and in case it is valid and can be used to decrypt the disc it is written to the KEYDB.cfg file used by the libaacs library (that can be used to play blurays for example in VLC).

Finally there's a really cool application called 'AACS Updater' that can be used to 1) get all known VUKs from a central database and 2) upload the new VUKs added to file to this central database.

This way the newly discovered VUKs can be shared with others as well

FindVUK is windows only - in case you're a linux user take a look at VukExtract from @m4tthi4s

Getting started:
  1. Install the AACS Updater from here: http://www.labdv.com/aacs/updater.php and execute it
  2. Select your DVDfab tool of choice - in case you don't have one at the moment I'd recommend either the DVDfab MediaplayerPro or the DVDfab DVDfab9 application
  3. Download and install the tool http://www.dvdfab.cn
    1. WindowsXP: please take care to install the VisualC++ Redist 2008SP1 x86 BEFORE installing the DVDfab application! In case you missed this step it will show the error 0xc0150002 and cannot create all necessary registry keys >> please reinstall the DVDfab application after installing the vcredist to correct the installation errors! (FindVUK cannot detect the proper application-path without those registry keys)
    2. WindowsXP: you need an additional UDF-driver to get access to bluray discs - please install e.g. MEIUDF-5.3.0.1_XP-X86_EN.exe (TinyUpload) as mentioned here: https://de.wikibooks.org/wiki/DVD-RA...rosoft_Windows
  4. Download and extract FindVUK into a new directory
  5. Execute FindVUK (during the first start it will download the dump-tool from the sysinternals website and start it so you can accept the license)
    • Alternatively download 'procdump.exe' (x86 version) manually and copy it into a subdirectory called 'tool'
  6. Insert a Bluray into your drive
  7. You're using Passkey or DVDfab9: it automatically start to decrypt the disc - FindVUK will watch the logfile, create a memory dump when Passkey/DVDfab9 got the VUK, stop the Passkey/DVDfab9 decrypting process and analyze the memory dump to get the VUK. Finally it will validate it against the disc and in case it's valid add it to the end of the KEYDB.cfg downloaded by the 'AACS Updater'
  8. You're using MediaPlayer: Please start the playback of the disc manually - FindVUK will watch the logfile, create a memory dump when Mediaplayer got the VUK, close MediaPlayer and analyze the memory dump to get the VUK. Finally it will validate it against the disc and in case it's valid add it to the end of the KEYDB.cfg downloaded by the 'AACS Updater' (and restart's MediaPlayer for the next analysis cycle)
  9. Repeat the previous 2 steps until you got the VUK for all your Blurays
  10. Execute 'AACS Updater' again so the new VUKs are uploaded to the central database

Whenever DVDfab releases a new version of either DVDfab, MediaPlayer or Passkey I'll test if FindVuk is still compatible and include it into an internal 'known to be good' list and will release a new version that includes this result. But even in case I'm not fast enough - FindVUK will simply report that the used DVDfab application is untested.

I hope the company behind the application don't close this way of retrieving the VUK.

In case you have problems with the tool please post your experience here and I'll try to help as good as I can

Source?

Also, a version with options to disable anything that uses a network connection in your program would be good.

Holy crap. It works! Amazing find.

Unfortunately DVDFabPasskey doesn't appear to work without internet connection so they can, and probably will, make the current versions stop working and block your program But let's hope and get as many keys as possible in the meantime

@mpfour:

It's written in Purebasic and at the moment I don't want to release the source - but maybe this will change in the future...

And basically there's nothing in the software that uses an online connection with one small exception - in case the 'procdump.exe' in the 'tool' subdirectory is not available the tool tries to download it automatically from the location that is specified in the ini file with 'ProcDumpUrl'.
Until now I never thought someone could have problems with this download - but I've changed the error message in case the URL is empty to something more readable

So in case you want to run it right from the start without any network activities simply create the FindVUK.ini file in the 'config' subdirectory manually and delete the procdumpurl from the ini file - for example this here should do the trick:

Quote:
[Passkey]
LogFolder = %userprofile%\Documents\DVDFab Passkey\Log
MainFile =
[FindVUK]
KEYDB_Path = %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\aacs
ProcDumpUrl =
CustomOffset_Folder2DiscId =
CustomOffset_DiscId2Vuk =
So Release 0.55 only includes the change of the error message in case of an empty download url:

Old Message:
Quote:
ProcDump is not available right now at >C:\FindVUK\tool\procdump.exe< - download a fresh copy now from ><
ERROR! receiving ><
ERROR! getting procdump - end now
New Message:

Quote:
Error - ProcDump is not available here >C:\FindVUK\tool\procdump.exe< and no download URL is specified!
Please download it manually from the SysInternals website

@candela:

Thanks for your positive post!

I also thought a lot if DVDfab will change their software to prevent that the VUK can be extracted from a memory dump - but personally I think that the VUK is only usefull for playback of blurays and although it can also be used to decrypt blurays I'm not aware of a convenient tool to do this.

So finally I don't think that somebody stops buying software from them because they don't sell bluray playback software

On the other hand it might be a reason to buy software from them to get the possibility to detect the VUK for certain blurays that couldn't be watched on a linux device otherwise...

But as I can't change it anyway I'm with you: get as many keys as possible as long as it works

Just a small info: DVDfab has the next promotion running and is giving away free lifetime licenses for DVDfab MediaPlayer pro (and in the next version of FindVUK you can also use MediaPlayer pro to find the vuk

http://de.dvdfab.cn/promotion.htm

And personally I find it more convenient to work with MediaPlayer than to work with Passkey

Okay - just finished my last internal tests for the next small update to FindVUK and attached version 0.61 in the first post

The biggest change is the additional support for 2 more products from DVDfab:
  • MediaPlayer Pro
  • DVDfab9

As already mentioned DVDfab has a promotion running to give away MediaPlayer pro lifetime licenses for free and when I installed this player I checked the memory dump and noticed that the same method to find the vuk can also be used for this software.
Finally I've tried it also for DVDfab9 and as expected it's also possible to get the VUK from it's memory dump
And as far as I can see the VUK can also be found with the trial version of DVDfab9 and as long as the 'main' features of DVDfab aren't used the 'real' trial period never starts and subsequently it will never expire

As FindVUK has still no interface it's settings are still controlled with the ini-file in the 'config' subdirectory - the ini-file got a few new parameters that I'd like to explain in short:

Section 'MediaPlayer' (and Section 'Passkey' - but this one has been in the ini-file since the first release)
  • LogFolder holds the default logdirectory for this applications - basically FindVUK reads the registry to get the currently configured logfolder so this key is only used in case the automatic detection fails (for example in case the registry key that is read at the moment get removed in an upcoming release or something like this...)
  • MainFile holds the path to the main exe file of the application - in case the path is empty it is also directly retrieved from the registry, so at the moment there's no need to specify it manually

Section 'DVDfab' (basically identical to the sections 'Passkey' and 'MediaPlayer' with one exception):
  • LogFile holds the complete logpath including the filename at the end - this is possible because for DVDfab also the filename can be specified in the settings, for MediaPlayer and Passkey only the folder can be set.

Section 'FindVUK'
  • PreferredApplication - this is basically the most important new parameter, as FindVUK now supports 3 different applications this is the way to decide which one should be used in case more than 1 of the supported applications is installed on the computer. 1=Passkey, 2=MediaPlayer, 3=DVDfab
  • IniVersion - makes no sense to change it manually, I use it to detect the current version of the ini file and automatically add new (or remove old) parameters

Personally I prefer using MediaPlayer and DVDfab9 against Passkey because for both new applications it's always possible to get access to the encrypted disc and this allows to validate the found VUK without the need to disable or exit an application (as it happens quite frequently with Passkey).

When using MediaPlayer you need to start the playback of the disc in MediaPlayer and as soon as the VUK has been found FindVUK will stop the playback and exit the MediaPlayer (but of course also start it again for the next disc) - this is necessary because MediaPlayer caches the result of it's internal analysis and so it wouldn't be possible to insert the same disc 2 times in a row (something that I'm doing quite often during my own tests ).

DVDfab9 doesn't cache any results - so it's not closed in the middle, simply insert one disc after the other without the need for any manual interaction

In case you run into troubles using FindVUK don't hesitate to post a reply here - and in case it's working perfectly for you I also appreciate positive feedback

I only have Passkey and Media Player installed and then FindVUK refuses to start unless I put a valid (fake) DVDFab path in the ini

Log file says:
DVDFab "Warning! DVDfab MainApp is not valid! >< - please check if it is installed properly!"

Thanks for the bug report! - already corrected the error... stupid mistake, don't know why I've treated the 'Warning' messages as errors...

Please try 0.62 now - it should work as expected (only exit in case not a single supported application can be found)

Thanks 0.62 works. The Media Player is indeed a much better option than Passkey which always locks my drive and often crashes when I try to close it. No such problems with Media Player so far

I'm trying to get this to run but it keeps giving a error and I don't know what to do. I only have temporary access to a Windows machine (I only run Linux) so I need to figure this out fast.
I already added added about 140 vuk's to the KeyDB that I could from a Linux machine now I want to get the rest of my v31+ discs done will I can so they well play under Linux after a KeyDB update.

Waiting 3 secs before quit...
Edit: It turns out it is only that one disc when I tried others they worked. I just have to figure out that one now.
Although I found 10 discs in the end that FindVUK said were invalid but when I manually added them from the terminal output into the keydb on my Linux system (no other decryption software running just libaacs) and manually tested they worked great. They were Game of Thrones seasons 3 and 4 plus the 3D disc for Jurassic Park

Another strange thing when I went to add those last ones with the updater it only added 9 but I had 10 and none of them worked before I added the vuks so they didn't exist beforehand in the DB

Hi! So as far as I can see you encountered 3 strange things

1) FindVUK cannot find the necessary data in the memory dump for the >GAME_OF_THRONES_S2_EPISODE_ONE▼< bluray.
>> in this case the memory dump should still be available in the dump subdirectory of the findvuk folder - it would be great if you could upload it somewhere and send me the location as pm so I can download it and check what is going wrong in this case.
You can check yourself with a hex editor if you can find the DiscId >AB6DAF1F77EEB06782525D440B84CF4F52D96452< in the memory dump.

2) FindVUK reported the found VUK to be invalid but it still works? Please post the logfile from such a disc - in case there's something wrong in my validation routine I'd like to correct it as soon as possible

3) The updater only updates 9 of 10 keys - well, please report this in the thread of the updater as honestly I have no idea why this is happening...

1) It turns out the problem with the Game of Thrones disc is that it can't create the dump file which can be seen by it having some strange character at the end of the volume label.

To make it worse for you to figure out I tried putting the log on pastebin but that character was deleted even opening the txt file in Notepad on Windows didn't show it. The only way I even saw it was when I opened the log file on my Linux machine.

I have attached the original txt file in case you also run Linux to see it and a screenshot of it open in vi incase you don't. I didn't even have to highlight the problems since it seems highlighted on its own.

2) The log is also doing the Jurassic Park 3D discs which gives a false invalid. But I know works since I have propagated it manually to my Linux laptop and Raspberry Pi which both started playing the disc fine afterwards.

3) I'll definitely find the updater thread because I may also have others that didn't upload but I thought it was coincidence that someone else added them because I got a updated db as I was doing the upload that time. But maybe not if it also added less this time when no other update happened.

Ahh! You're right - this strange character will be the problem! I'm only wondering why procdump.exe doesn't return an error when it fails because of the filename...

I'll remove all strange characters in future from the filename - I think this will solve the problem

Give me a few minutes - I'll upload the next release soon!

Unfortunately I cannot download your logfile because it still needs approval... maybe you can simply upload it to file-upload.net or another easy to use filehoster and paste the link here?

Here is the log also I noticed the character looks different when I open it in gedit on my Linux system so it's like it just shows something as a place holder and not a specific character.

Thanks for the logfile! This really helps! I think I already know the problem with VUK-invalid message.. it's again a stupid error
I'm only wondering why I've never run into this problem before....

I'll fix it now and as soon as I've finished this task I'll upload the next release
