How to Remove DRM From iTunes rental or purchased videos on Mac OS X

As we all know, iTunes videos are all DRM protected by Apple's Fairplay, which prevent us reusing the content freely, like sharing the iTunes videos on network, editing the iTunes videos with FCP or iMovie, converting iTunes videos to other common formats and watching iTunes videos on many Non-apple devices and so on.

There are so many limitations on the iTunes rented or purchased videos. Why not find a DRM removal software to crack the iTunes DRM and then watch the iTunes videos free?

Here I want to share my experiences for using a DRM Media Converter and removing the drm from all my iTunes videos on my Mac.

Step 1. Download and Install the recommended DRM media converter tool.
iTunes DRM Media Converter for Mac

This DRM Media Converter for Mac tool requires you to install the lastest iTunes and Mac OS 10.8 or later.

Step 2. Add iTunes DRM videos
Click Add button, then you can add the iTunes drm videos from iTunes library directly.

Step 3. Click Start to start removing iTunes DRM
Click Start button, then the DRM media converter for Mac will start to work. It will soon convert the iTunes drm m4v videos to unprotected MP4 format.
MP4 format is the most popular video format currently. It's compatible with almost all mobile devices and can be uploaded to any video sharing websites.

What is Apple FairPlay?


FairPlay is a digital right management (DRM) technology introduced by Apple Inc., based on technology created by the company Veridisc. FairPlay is built into the QuickTime multimedia software and used by the iPhone, iPod, iPad, Apple TV, iTunes, and iTunes Store and the App Store. Users will encounter Fairplay DRM technology when they buy iTunes movies/TV shows, Apps or even eBooks from iTunes store. Also, Apple Music is FairPlay DRM protected.
Restrictions of Apple DRM FairPlay
FairPlay DRM protection in iTunes purchased videos and Apple Music nearly makes people mad. With FairPlay DRM, you:
• Can't play iTunes movies, TV shows and Apple Music on non-apple device like Android phones and tablets, Windows phone, game consoles and so on.
• Can't play iTunes movies on other video players like Windows Media Player, VLC Media Player, etc.
• Can't stream iTunes movies, TV show, music, etc. to PS4, PS3, Chromecast, Roku, etc.
• Can't read the DRM-protected iBooks on common e-readers, like Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Nook, etc.
Therefore, many people are seeking for a FairPlay DRM Removal to bypass DRM from iTunes movies, Apple Music and iBooks.

Can't burn to DVD tv shows from my ITunes? Is there any way to make a DVD from videos purchased through ITunes?


Movie from iTunes store has DRM copyright protection, you can only play it on your computer or Apple portable player. If you want to burn it to DVD to play on TV, you have to remove the DRM at first, and then convert and burn it to DVD. If you need detailed, I think this step by step guide would help you
