How to Cut DRM iTunes Movies to Segments Losslessly for Free

iTunes is one of the best digital media managing stores in the world that offers tons of HD video contents like movies, TV shows and extras. For its high quality video resources, iTunes has become the default choice of video service for many of us and we download iTunes movies for entertainment anywhere at home, office and so on. iTunes videos are undoubtedly playing a really important role in our daily life.

However, as time goes, the iTunes library become so cumbersome and it will take up all the space of our devices. There are many favorite video scenes we never want to lose and usually we can’t keep buying new disks to backup all the episodes. So instead of deleting some videos completely to save space, is there any other better options? Of course, you can also try to cut iTunes videos if you can remove the DRM copyright protection.

Part 1. Remove Fairplay DRM from iTunes Video for Free

iTunes videos are protected with the notorious FairPlay DRM which cripples our freedom to enjoy videos in other players and devices. Needless to say, it is impossible to edit Tunes videos directly either. In this situation, removing DRM is an indispensable step before you can start to cut iTunes M4V movies. Good news is that many DRM freewares available online can remove DRM for free with different features and functions such as MyFairTunes can remove DRM from Apple music, Calibre is a DRM Remover for Apple iBooks, Freeme2 is for handling WMA and WMV DRM files and Requiem supports to break DRM from iTunes videos, songs and ebooks. Therefore to unlock DRM for free from iTunes videos, you can use Requiem. It is a super simple program which can remove digital right protection through accessing the same secret credentials used by iTunes. What you need to do is to download the Requiem 4.1 for Windows/OSX online and double click the Requiem to install and launch the software, then it will start to detect all the iTunes files and crack DRM automatically.

Note: As mentioned above, Requiem is very good as a free tool, but it also has disadvantages. For instance it was discontinued in 2012, so it only works in iTunes 7 or lower version. If you don’t have such an iTunes version, you need to remove the current iTunes version and then reinstall the older version. I have done that before and it takes rather long time. After doing that once, I never want to do that again personally. If you don’t want to waste your precious time either, alternatively you can get a paid software such as TunesKit DRM Media Converter for Windows/Mac which is an leading DRM remover with lossless quality and super fast converting speed. It supports the latest iTunes 12.6 and lifetime free update & support is available after buying.

Part 2. Cut iTunes Videos without DRM for Free

If you want to cut the large iTunes files to remove unwanted video parts and keep your preferred clips for free, you should use TunesKit Free Video Cutter for Windows/Mac which can losslessly cut any kind of videos.

With the iTunes movie DRM removal tools, you’ll solve this problem in seconds. Have you heard any useful tools such as TunesKit DRM Media Converter, NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus and Aimersoft DRM Media Converter? Nevertheless, here in this review, we’ll compare those three top-rated iTunes DRM video converters from different aspects, including conversion method, output quality, conversion time, speed, etc. in order to help you pick up the best iTunes M4V converter when removing DRM from iTunes videos.

TunesKit DRM Media Converter, NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus and Aimersoft DRM Media Converter are all contributed to convert the protected iTunes M4V videos to common unprotected file formats. When it comes to the effectiveness of these three tools, whose performance is the best? Just read on.

TunesKit VS NoteBurner VS Aimersoft: Converision Method

Aimersoft DRM Media Converter could be listed on the top priorities to bypass DRM from numerous types of copy-protected videos. But it is worth mentioning that Aimersoft DRM Media Cinverter can’t really remove the DRM protection and it gets the unprotected audios/videos by recording the original file. It is good news that TunesKit DRM Media Converter and NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus could convert DRM on iTunes movies and TV shows purchased and rented from iTunes store to DRM-free files.

TunesKit VS NoteBurner VS Aimersoft: Conversion Quality

The quality of conversion decides the comfort degree of enjoying videos. Here is where the difference between these three trial converters and the original file would be very apparent.

conversion-quality-comparison.jpg

From these pictures, we can understand that the quality of TunesKit DRM Media Converter and NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus is the same as the original file, while we might be tiresome during the watching period by using the Aimersoft DRM Media Converter.

TunesKit VS NoteBurner VS Aimersoft: Conversion Process

When starting TunesKit DRM Media Converter and NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus, the iTunes will be launched by itself, which leads us to the files that we want to convert as quickly as possible by adding the files, dragging the files into the area. Besides, it is also supported to search the files into the area by NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus, whose ‘Convert’ button is not apparent. If it was your first time to use this app, you would get trouble in it. With the Aimersoft DRM Media Converter, the iTunes won’t show up until I click the button to convert videos. As a result, we must click the key words again and again to get the files that we need, which is very troublesome.

TunesKit VS NoteBurner VS Aimersoft: Conversion Time

When it comes to conversion time, TunesKit DRM Media Converter must be the solid choice. The reason is that I measured the processing time for all apps using the same roughly one-minute iTunes source movie, TunesKit DRM Media Converter just spends around 3 seconds finishing the task, NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus needs around half a minute but the Aimersoft DRM Media Converter needs more time, which is up to at least 4 minutes. Therefore, TunesKit DRM Media Converter is the fastest converter than the other two.

Conclusion: Which is the Best iTunes M4V Converter?

From what have mentioned above, I could conclude that TunesKit DRM Media Converter, NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus and Aimersoft DRM Media Converter striping the restriction of DRM from iTunes movies and TV shows purchased and rental all aim to make our digital life easier and easier. But as far as I am concerned, TunesKit DRM Media Convertert and NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus are more convenient than Aimersoft DRM Media Converter as a whole. Nevertheless, which to choose between TunesKit DRM Media Converter and NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus depends on the following aspects.

If you have numerous iTunes movies in your library or you know the title of the movie you need to convert, NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus is a good choice because of the function of searching files. But according to the speed of converting videos with lossless quality, TunesKit DRM Media Converter may be the best choice. Hope this post can help you and now do you have the best iTunes M4V Converter to choose in your mind?

How to Remove DRM from iTunes Music

itunes-music-converter.jpg

As you know, Apple dropped the DRM encryption from its iTunes  M4P music tracks in 2009. But the problem is that the songs you purchased before the year of 2009 were still locked by the FairPlay DRM and you can’t freely play them on your non-Apple devices. So have you ever thought about stripping off the DRM from the iTunes music? If so, you should follow these two solutions as below to learn how to easily remove DRM from iTunes music.

Burn iTunes M4P Songs to CD/DVD

The good news is that although Apple doesn’t let you convert DRM-protected iTunes music to MP3, it lets you burn them to a CD. So here the first way to remove DRM from your iTunes songs is to burn the M4P tracks to DVD or CD disc.

1. Create music playlist in iTunes

Insert a blank CD or DVD disc in the drive and open iTunes on your computer. Select the File > New Playlist option. Add a name to the new playlist.

2. Add iTunes songs to playlist

Now select all the iTunes M4P music files that you want to remove DRM from and drag them to the playlist that you just created.

3. Burn iTunes music to CD

Once the tracks are imported to the iTunes playlist, right-click the playlist and select the option “Burn playlist to Disc”. iTunes will now present you a dialogue box where you can select the kind of CD/DVD that you want to burn. Make sure you select the Audio CD option. Then iTunes will start burning the iTunes music to the CD automatically.

4. Import iTunes songs from CD/ DVD

The final step is to rip the songs that you burned onto audio CD, back to digital music files. Simply open iTunes, select the Edit > Preferences > General tab, click on Import Settings. To start ripping the audio CD, you should insert it into your CD drive on your computer and click the Yes button to start.

Wait for a while till the ripping finishes. Now all the files that have been imported into your music library will be free from DRM so that you can transfer them to any MP3 device for playback.

Note: The downside of using this method is that iTunes only lets you burn the same song once. Besides, if you have a lot of music files to burn, it will take a rather long time to finish the whole process. So if you have the need to convert a large amount of iTunes songs for more than once, you’d better use a legal DRM removal tool as mentioned in the following method.

Convert DRM-protected iTunes Music to MP3

The other common way to remove DRM from iTunes M4P is using a third-party DRM removal tool for iTunes. With this method, you can completely and permanently bypass the DRM lock from iTunes songs so that you can transfer the files to any devices at anytime without limit.

iTunes DRM Removal: How to Remove DRM Lock from iTunes Media

remove-drm-itunes.jpg

How would you describe Apple’s ecosystem, especially the iTunes ecosystem? Doesn’t it like that Apple has lured users into a trap using design or marketing, shut the door behind them and thrown away the key? Generally speaking, this kind of ecosystem lock-in essentially doesn’t allow the customer to take the content and move to another platform. To be specifically, this can be achieved by limiting a device’s file format compatibility, or by limiting the ways in which a device can be loaded with content.

Apple’s Ecosystem Lock-in: iTunes Music, Video, and Books

Before January 6, 2009, audio files sold in iTunes Store were protected using Apple’s own FairPlay DRM solution. As of today, all music sold in the iTunes Store after April 7, 2009, is DRM free while Apple put the DRM back to the songs in its newly released music streaming service, Apple Music. Currently, all video content, including movies, TV shows, and music videos sold through iTunes is DRM protected and can only be played on devices compatible with the FairPlay DRM. With iBooks, Apple offers both copy protected books as well as books without DRM on its iOS devices. In the case of audiobooks, they are generally offered in file formats, such as M4A or M4B, with embedded DRM protection.

Those facts portray a gloomy situation we have to face, that is, several types of content available for purchase in iTunes are subject to ecosystem lock-in, where we as users are prohibited from dealing with the purchased items in ways we like. That’s not the end of the story, however. There are of course methods to strip DRM from iTunes media content, such as the ones introduced in the following article.

Bypass DRM Encryption from Offline Apple Music M4P Songs

If you are subscribing Apple Music streaming service or have a large collection of iTunes music files purchased before 2009, you may have the need to move away from Apple ecosystem by transferring those DRM-restricted songs to non-Apple platforms. In such a case, you are here to meet TunesKit DRM M4P Converter, a perfect DRM removal solution developed to completely remove DRM from offline Apple Music M4P songs, as well as the old iTunes music purchases protected by DRM. It’s designed to free the M4P audio from DRM by converting the copy-protected songs to common MP3, AAC, M4A, FLAC, WAV, and M4B with original ID tags preserved. If you own any mac machine running OS X 10.8 or later, you should install the TunesKit M4P Converter for Mac.
