General Chit-Chat>Red Box Movie Box Porno Swapping

I heard a story today of someone successfully overwriting DVD movies with nasty footage of scat porn and returning to red box locations. There is an investigation underway in an attempt to apprehend a suspect.

Number 1: Is this possible? I don't want to go rent a movie for my son and half way through it break into butt secks action or something.

Number 2: Who comes up with this shit? Is this some form of spin off of the movie Fight Club where he spliced a dick into a movie?

Number 3: If I didn't have a son to worry about seeing something like that this would be damn funny :-)

1. Shouldn't be possible for the simple fact that it *should* lock the DVD after the writing.
2. Obv. someone fucked up.
3. Eh, not particularly.

What is more likely is that they are just putting their own DVD in.

Impossible with a production DVD as far as I know.

Now, if they ripped the original to a new DVD and put the "new" DVD back in the machine... But the data side of those are distinctly different from production DVD's. You would see that the DVD is "different" than a normal one, even if you didn't know why.

I think somebody may have pulled the coded sticker off the dvd and put it on a porn, then returned it. The red box computer doeesn't know the difference. That is how people steal DVD's from redbox.

Ive never looked closely at redbox but I knwo they track the dvds with barcodes.

Blockbuster uses rfid tags that can be removed and placed on other disks if one is crafty and wants to get a bill eventually.

I would think the barcodes are simply being moved from the redbox dvd to a scat dvd.

Of course! Vaginal intercourse has always been acceptable for my son to watch, that's why he's here after all :-)

1. With every one I've seen, the RedBox barcode is silkscreened onto the original DVD...they cannot just remove a label real quick and put it on a porn.

2. Blockbuster is hurting bad from RedBox and Netflix so odds are not exactly bad this was a rumor designed to keep you from renting from anything but a brick and mortar store where you may THINK something like this has less odds of happening.

Im thinking it would be a simple matter of scanning the disc cover and printing a new label to put on any ol disc ya want.. why? I have no idea... but not very difficult.

Production DVD's are not writeable, they are cast from a master blank. The internals of the disk are different than a R/RW DVD. I used to make'em, any production DVD isn't being made in a burned, it's being popped out of a press every 17 seconds. :-)

Yup.

DVDs and writable-DVDs aren't made the same, you can't burn a DVD with a laser, they are stamped (or injection molded, I've heard of both), a writable DVD has a photosensitive dye that the burning laser turns opaque. Two different processes.

Edit - Phattie beat me to it.

There is no way, as far as I have ever heard, of burning a manufactured DVD with a laser - unless RedBox is doling out burned DVDs, which I HIGHLY doubt.

Around here, there are no more brick and mortar stores, they've all been run off by netflix and redbox.

Seeing as how I once had an entire media library done that way, boxes and all, I think this is what happened. It's very easy to make very good quality covers.

What I'm afraid of most is blockbuster going out of business altogether and closing ALL of its stores...netflix sucks hardcore with the sketchy mail system up here, internet is just about as unreliable so streaming suffers, that leaves redbox. I've only really seen one redbox in town. I can't imagine it'll keep any of the newer movies that are worth watching in stock very long, and many older flicks as well. I'm sure requests can solve the latter issue.

Sucks for you. I have not been in a video store since I do not know how long. Been in Oregon going on 5 years. Also have only done Red Box a dozen or so times. Netflix is the way to go. Way cheap and movies are pretty regular.

We have four of the redbox machines in my town that I know of, and one actual movie store (Family Video). I'm surprised they haven't shut down yet, you don't hardly ever see them busy.

Hell, I live outside a 70k town. there are no hollywoods or blockbusters. we have 2 shitty local rental places that don't have shit to offer............seems like netflix and redbox have killed the rental market here. and we have hundreds of Redboxes here. damn near one on every corner.

Doesn't suck so much for me, I have other avenues. But I like having options. I spent an asston of cash at the blockbuster when I lived in town...but now that I'm 30 minutes away from the closest, it's not worth it any more.

Every blockbuster I've driven by here has a going out of business sign on it.

Last year the local Planet Hollywood (and Gamesomething) closed. We got a Mattresses To Go store in it's place,.. :-)

I don't remember when the grocery stores stopped renting and put in the boxes.

Come to think of it, I don't know of any other rental store, it's all rental boxes.

Pretty much what I'm thinkin'. If Redbox is handling a bajillion disks a day, they aren't going to be looking carefully at each one.

I imagine it WAS pretty easy. I expect QC is a bit tighter now.

There was a guy in Reno area returning a blank DVD to them. He would copy the label/barcode on the top and it would scan in as being returned. Only way I see it possible to replace the movie would be something similar to this. Splicing in a scene....that would take a LOT of time for ONE guy to get a short cut into a DVD. 8mm film is different.
