ClearPlay Technology

A friend in our local homeschool group alerted me to the ClearPlay DVD players available online and at Target. We got ours hooked up yesterday, and I can't recommend it enough. It uses filters (little computer programs) to skip and/or mute objectionable content on DVDs.

It is an advancement over the CleanFlicks model, which violated copyright laws by making copies of movies, editing the copies, and renting the edited version. I can see why the Federal courts ruled in favor of the movie industry on this.

With the ClearPlay player and the filter to match your DVD, you can control content on owned or borrowed DVDs. The DVD itself is not altered at all, avoiding any copyright issues. The filters give the player commands which seemlessly mute out or skip past objectionable content in playback.

Check it out!
