• Remove iTunes DRM
    19 replies, posted
Does anyone know of some software that can remove DRM from a movie i purchased from iTunes? The reason is because after I bought it I realized that I was unable to play it on my tv any other way but with a dvd. So anyone know of a way? If not I guess ill just watch it on my iPhone....
Just convert it
Will it work when its locked by Apple's DRM?
With the right converter [editline]14th December 2010[/editline] I've heard of ones, don't remember exactly, because I never buy my videos from iTunes.
Can anyone tell me one of these programs that does this or one that removes the DRM?
Burn it to a DVD, then rip the DVD. DRM-free.

If you just burn it to CD, assuming a competent decoder, the quality doesn't change. Also this advice doesn't apply to videos. What you can do is whine to apple to refund you via the itunes support thing and they might be able to help you out with refunding your purchase.

"analog hole" defeats most everything.

There is still an analog hole, all that needs to be done is to cut out the speakers, and wire them to RCA connectors.

Haven't seen anything that can do the job properly. There was something a few years ago called tunebite but that just played the song and recorded anything that windows was outputting as sound in realtime. So it would take long as hell and if some odd windows sound played for whatever reason in the background that would also be added into your new "song".

HDCP decoders are not efficiently implemented in software.... you would need to have a video loopback and then decode it in software (not in real-time) and then put that to disk where it must be re-encoded to a compressed format. It's not practical at all yet. [editline]15th December 2010[/editline] [QUOTE={ABK}AbbySciuto;26720228]I love loopholes.[/QUOTE] It's not a loop hole, it's a leak ._.

TuneByte.
Never mind, I thought you meant music. Ignore my post.
