DRM I have a few TV shows and movies (wmv) I bought from amazon download, and I am able to play it on my PC. I have another PC that I wanted to play it on, but it won't play because it says that there is no license to me. Where is the license located on the drive so that I can copy it? Would I be able to copy the wmv DRM lincense key to another PC?

    This looks like it's for the older version of Windows Media Player. How do you play it using WMV version 11?

  • Dennis Carey Oct 21, 2008

    The Windows Media player comes with Windows XP. I don't know where to look for the key.

  • Dennis Carey Nov 09, 2008

    It can be done by just getting a second hard drive and loading Windows XP with no updates. Install the first version of WMV 11 and use FairUse4WM. It will convert the file without any loss in quality.

    Try this. Go to WMP on your first computer. Go to Tools->License management and backup the licenses you need to your desktop. Put those licenses on the other computer using a CD, network, flash drive, etc... Then on the second computer open WMP go to tools->license management and restore those licenses onto that computer.

    That tool I pointed to you is for CD's you ripped and protected using WMP and not for WMV movies.

    There is no key for WMP. You best bet is to backup your licenses and restore them on the other computer.

Remove DRM from WMV WMA


What is DRM? Why do we remove DRM from WMA WMV? Have you download music and video from Windows Media Player, iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, bearshare, Spiral Frog, BBC iPlayer downloads? These popular music and movie download programs among the music fans always come with a disgusting word - 'DRM'.
DRM (Digital Rights Management) - The anti consumer copy protection that prevents you from using music or movies in a way that suits you. For example, if a WMA or WMV you downloaded from WMP(windows media player) that has DRM, you can only play it back on a compatible device, so if every piece of music had DRM on it you would need to buy the same track on CD to listen in your CD player or car, as an iTunes download to play on your iPod, as a ms store download to play on your Zune etc, but since you paid for it once you shouldn't be forced to pay for it again and again and again, remove DRM license from WMA WMV and other protected files then you can play the music video on phone, iPod, Zune, PSP, CD player, pc, burn DRM protected WMV files to DVD and copy drm protected wmv itunes m4v movie files to anything else that you can listen to music video on.
How to remove DRM from WMA WMV? I got a few methods listed below:
1. Burn and rip
Actually, there is a common free method to remove DRM from WMA with 2 steps, Step 1 Burn the protected WMA to a CD
Step 2 Rip them off to your computer, then the DRM should be removed from the WMA files.
But it's not very convenient and may wear out your CR-ROM. And windows media player can only burn and rip the WMA (or you will need DVD copy and DVD ripper for other formats).
2. Re-record
One of the most common and simple technology is recording the DRM protected WMA then use an ordinary converter to convert the recorded and unprotected files. Because this technology is easy to realized and easy to support more DRM formats besides protected WMA it is welcomed by most of the DRM converters like the SoundTaxi, NoteBurner , etc.
But there are some disadvantages for those programs.
1. The conversion speed won't get much improvement due to the long recording process.
2. Much audio and video quality could be lost during the recording process.
3. Hook
Hook is another new and more complicated technology which can be used to remove DRM license from protected WMA WMV files. Comparing with recording process, these sorts of drm removal have much higher conversion speed, but it's hard to make it support some DRM formats with new and lofty encrpytion tachniques.
And as far as I know, Aimersoft was one of its supporters. After giving a test for some free trials I found it is convenient to crack DRM from protected WMA WMV files with Aimersoft Media Converter, and it also supports other formats conversion like AAC, AC3, WAV, M4A, M4b, MP3, etc.

Remove DRM from WMA WMV and your favorite music videos to release you music life.
