IntroductionI'm an avid Apple user and mostly use MacBook and iPhone as my daily drivers. I've been used to of iTunes for my music and movie needs and use it in tandem with Netflix and Amazon Prime. While the latter services allow you to watch movies and episodes on a fixed monthly/yearly rental, iTunes allows you to buy or even rent a particular movie or series as per your liking. This, in some cases, works out better for me. I often find myself renting a movie for as low as Rs. 50 and watch it for a fixed period of time that iTunes allows me.
The only issue here is, after the rental period is over, I would not be able to watch this movie again, even if it's downloaded on my hard drive. This is because all these movies are protected under the "Fair Play DRM Protection" and is formatted in an M4V video format.
A friend of mine uses a Windows laptop and wanted my help to unlock his purchased movies on iTunes so that he can transfer some of them onto his mobile device. Since these movies are usually DRM protected and cannot be played on other devices, he needed a powerful software that not only removes the DRM protection but also preserves the audio and video quality of the movie.
TunesKit M4V Converter
The software that we used to remove DRM protection for these videos is called TunesKit M4V Converter. This program is available for Windows as well as Mac OS. TunesKit M4V Converter is a complete DRM removal tool that allows you to remove DRM protection and convert iTunes M4V rentals and purchases to the more commonly used MP4, MOV, MPG, AVI formats with lossless 5.1 audio tracks and subtitles preserved for playing on any device.
How does it work?
DRM protected movies and videos are essentially video files encoded in a different format (M4V) that checks the purchased licence on that device before it starts playing. Even though one can transfer these files to another computer, they won't play unless a purchase or rental licence is found on that computer or mobile device.
TunesKit M4V Converter basically re-encodes these video files into a freely transferable and playable format like MP4, MPV, MPG etc. Once encoded into a new format, the DRM protection is lost and these files can easily be played on any other device.
This software re-encodes videos pretty fast and also removes all DRM protection from not only purchased movies but also from rented movies from the iTunes store.
How to use
Please note, this is a paid software and is easily available for both Windows as well as the Mac Operation System from the link mentioned below:
