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.

I believe the tool and information you are seeking is available here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/forpros/drm/pluwiz.aspx

Amazon uses Microsoft's DRM scheme.

    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.

• 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.
