If you use their software to, say, disable all these bullshit trailers and anti-piracy warnings etc, does that then only work if you watch it on your PC? Or can they somehow disable them on the disc so that it also works on any other dvd player? (or blu-ray player?)

They seem to indicate that they can remove region restrictions so it can be used on any player whatsoever, but does that still require the software to be running?

You would use the removal functionality to remove that crap from a rip you can make from your own dvd. that can be for a compressed digital format on your computer, or an exact/compressed copy of the dvd you can burn with the items removed.

The region "bit" on a dvd can be removed with the software also so the resulting copy of the dvd is essentially "region free". This can make it work in any dvd players that can play region free discs. No software is required to be running to make this happen, just something that is removed in the back-up/copy process.
