TS Offline Decryption with MDAPI plugins (Acamd etc.)
Hey there! I've written three little programs which might be of some use for you and which you can find in a zip archive at They allow you to decrypt encrypted Transport Stream (TS) recordings (known as Offline Decryption). Older versions of the package communicated directly with gbox/mbox. This has now been replaced by communication with MDAPI plugins like Acamd and vPlug. You can still use it with gbox/mbox by using Acamd (Acamd supports communication with gbox/mbox). The main purposes of this package are: 1) getting error free decryptions of broadcastings even in cases of critical smartcard latencies (e.g. in case of Sk@ UK). 2) decryption of broadcastings without having access to a cardsharing network: The first program extracts all ECM data from the TS file - you can send it via e-mail (files are not so large) to someone who has access to a cardsharing network + supported MDAPI plugin. This person uses the second program to send the ECM data to the plugin and collect the Control Words to another little file. This file can be sent back to you - and you use it together with the third program to decrypt the encrypted TS file. On an up-to-date PC, it takes about 15 minutes from the end of the encrypted recording to the finished decrypted TS file.
