How to Remove DRM Protection from Any Media Files [Hot]

Do you enjoy digital media files? If so, you may have already knew that most hot media files you bought online are copyright protected with special formats.

The well-known DRM protected files include iTunes movies/TV shows, Apple Music, Audible audiobooks, Spotify Music, ePub books, Amazon Kindle books and much more.

Generally you won't have playback issue by authorizing the digital files on the specific players. However, if you have multiple cross platform devices especially the offline portable devices like MP3 player, MP4 player, you will surely encounter some playback issues due to the DRM protection.

As a media fan, I watch a lot of movies from iTunes and listen to Spotify music and so on. I truly understand how annoying and inconvenient the DRM is. Good news is that most DRM are deletable. If you are also bothered with this issue, now it is time to follow this tutorial to use the best DRM removal software to get rid of DRM from any digital media files. how to remove drm protection

Part 1. How to Remove DRM from iTunes Movies

iTunes videos such as movies, TV shows, Extras are all combined with the Apple FairPlay DRM protection in M4V format. You can only play them on up to 5 authorized Apple devices like iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and computers with iTunes.

If you'd like to transfer iTunes movies to Android devices, you have to remove FairPlay DRM from M4V first. You can do that via a free drm removal Requiem or a commercial software.

The shortage of Requiem is that Requiem is a discontinued tool which only works on old computers with low iTunes version. It takes a significantly long time and doesn't guarantee to work.

If you care about your time very much, you can go ahead to use the DRmare M4V Converter for Mac/Windows to Remove DRM from iTunes movies . It is the most efficient DRM removal tool in the market. It retains the 100% lossless video quality and runs at 30X speed.

Part 2. How to Remove DRM from WMV Videos

WMV is short for Windows media video. It is available from most video websites such as BBC iPlayer, Amazon Unbox, Windows Media Player center. It is locked by Microsoft's PlayForSure DRM protection, making it only playable on specified PCs.

To remove DRM from WMV, you can use the free tools FairUse4WM, FreeMe2 and so on. I have downloaded them to test and they work well.

But if you just don't care about spending some money, you can also use the most famous Aimersoft DRM Media Converter which has a much more user-friendly interface. And it works for almost all DRM movie resources including Limewire, uTorrent, FrostWire, Amazon Instant Video, Xbox Live Store.

Part 3. How to Remove DRM from Apple Music

Apple has eliminated DRM protection from iTunes songs since 2009. But the songs purchased previously before 2009 are still encrypted. This is same to its newly established streaming platform Apple Music.

Many users try to record the songs by using free streaming audio recorders. Since it runs in real time, it is really time consuming. Honestly it is not a feasible way if you have hundreds or thousands of songs.

The best way is to use the iTunes Match service if you only have iTunes DRM protected songs. If you'd like to remove DRM from Apple Music, you should try the DRmare Apple Music Converter for Mac. It is an all-in-one tools for Apple Music, iTunes M4P songs, iTunes podcasts, etc. It runs at up to 30X faster speed to convert music in batch.

Part 4. How to Remove DRM from Spotify Music

Spotify is another popular streaming music platform. Unlike Apple Music, it offers both free tier and premium tier services. That is why it attracts a lot of subscribers.

But all the OGG music files from the Spotify server are all DRM protected too. You can only play them on the devices with the specified Spotify player even if you have paid the membership fee monthly.

You can try one of the Spotify music converters from DRmare, Sidify, Tubefab, NoteBurner, Ondesoft etc. to remove DRM from Spotify. Though they all work, what I want to say is that not all the software are created the same. Care much about quality? You'd better pick up the DRmare software.

Part 5. How to Remove DRM from Epub/Kindle Books

iTunes, Amazon Kindle store are two of the best eBook providers. You can open ePub with iBooks on iDevices and Kindle Books on Amazon tablets like Fire or Kindle. But you can't transfer both eBooks between different devices due to the copy protection limitation.

What is worse is that few tools to remove DRM from eBooks in the market. After spending hours searching online, I found only two tools maybe helpful. Epubor Ultimate for Kindle books and TunesKit iBook Copy for iBooks. You can give them a try.

Part 6. How to Remove DRM from Audible Audiobooks

Audiobooks offer a much convenient way to enjoy when you are doing house chores, running, waiting outside compared to eBooks. As the largest audiobook source, Audible provides millions of audiobooks from different categories. These files are in AA/AAX formats. To play them, you can use the Audible app or the Audible Manager.
