Created by Apple, FairPlay is one of the leading commercial digital rights management systems. By adding this kind of DRM, the majority of the iTunes Media files are encrypted. As a result they can't be copied to other devices for playback and can only be played via the authorized Apple devices such as iPhone, iPod, iPad, Apple TV and computers etc. Also, it limits you to authorize the files to no more than 5 devices. This may help to protect the copyright somehow, however, it is not perfect as it also limits the purchased legal users from taking full control of the videos easily.

FairPlay is a digital rights management (DRM) technology created 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, iTunes Store and the App Store. Formerly, all songs in the iTunes Store were encoded with FairPlay. Apple later started offering a selection of songs, that after an additional 30 cents per song is charged, could be downloaded FairPlay-free.[1] Apple no longer sells individual songs or albums with FairPlay encryption from the iTunes store.[2] However, apps downloaded from the iTunes store and Apple Music subscription songs saved for offline listening are still encrypted with FairPlay.[3][4] FairPlay digitally encrypts AAC audio files and prevents users from playing these files on unauthorized computers.

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.

How to convert m4p music to mp3

Convert m4p to mp3,itunes to windows media, convert itunes music

The M4P file type is primarily associated with 'Protected AAC File' by Apple Inc. AAC is the audio layer from the follow-on format to MP3. The .M4P extension is AAC purchased from Apple's Music Store (iTune) and is protected by a Digital Rights Management scheme.

Most songs sold through the iTunes Store are encoded using FairPlay-encrypted 128 kbits/s AAC streams in an MP4 wrapper, using M4P extension. Apple has maintained tight control of its FairPlay encryption. Other online music stores cannot sell music files encoded with FairPlay. This means that consumers who want to listen to songs downloaded from the iTunes Store must either have an iPod or convert the files to an open format. There are two ways to convert M4P music to MP3. One way is to use itunes for sophisticated computer user, another way is to use third party program for beginner, which is much easier.

Part one: Using itunes to converting M4p music

Step 1: Run iTunes and set burner options firstly. You can choose

Edit>Preferences>Advanced>Burning menu and then select your CD burner.

Note: If you don't have a physical burner, you may use a virtual burner program, NoteBurner. After you install it, you can choose NoteBurner Virtual CD-RW as what you do in the first step.

Step 2: Create a new playlist in iTunes and add all m4p files you want to convert to this new list.

Note: If you use NoteBurner, you need to select the output format in NoteBurner. After you click Settings button, you can set the output as MP3, WAV and WMA.

Step 3: Click Burn Disc button in iTunes to starting the burning. If you use NoteBurner, this is the final step since the program can rip back the burned music automatically. The output folder will be open automatically after all music finishes encoding.

Note: If you burn the m4p files on real CD, you need to rip the music back in iTunes. Open iTunes Edit>Preferences>Advanced menu and click small Importing tab inside the Advanced tab to choose "WAV encoder" or "AIFF Encoder" in the "Import Using" dropdown. In the left-hand panel under "Devices", select the CD that you burned

Step 4: In the main window opposite, deselect any CD track(s) you do not want to convert. Right-click or control-click over them, and choose the "convert to AIFF" or "convert to WAV" option.

Step 5: After the conversion, you may find the converted file at C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music

Part two: Using third party program to convert M4p music

Comparing to the previous method, the following is more simple and easier, you can finish the job with just several clicks.

Step 1: Free download M4P Converter, install and run it.

Step 2: Clicking "Add" or directly drag-drop protected M4P files. Batch M4P to MP3 conversion supported.

Step 3: In the "Setting" button, choose MP3 format (*.mp3), you can also custom the music.

Step 4: Click the "Start" button to start converting M4P to MP3. After successful converting M4P to MP3, the result shall be stored on the "Output path" folder. Then you can use them for playing without any limitation.
