But wait, AnyDVD rises from the ashes as Redfox
Even though Slysoft shut it’s doors, I wanted to get the final version of each of their products. But what to my surprise when I found there was Redfox.bz, a rebranding of AnyDVD and perhaps a complete resurrection of the product. According to Neowin, Redfox has a new version of AnyDVD that connects to the Online Protection Database which is part of the mojo that makes AnyDVD work so well.
Who knows if this is the real deal and how long it will stick around, but the forums are back up and running. You can’t buy new copies of AnyDVD, but if you have a valid license key, you can install and use the most recent update.
You can go to the download page and see the following changelog:
184.108.40.206 2016 03 01
AnyDVD reborn! SlySoft is dead, long live RedFox!

The fox is not completely back yet, but on it’s way…
