A further tidbit: the source code I have has the following line (in

unsigned char im2[6]={0x51,0x67,0x67,0xc5,0xe0,0x00};

That's the Xing key, I believe, though I have no authoritative way of
proving whether it is or not.

In any case, this code does not use "different methods" of acquiring
title/disc keys or decrypting data.  It would appear to be the source
code to the original DeCSS or to some equivalent later version.
