How to Share Your Purchased iTunes Content to Others

If you and your family members are using different iTunes accounts for purchasing digital content from iTunes Store, you may meet the problem that you can’t share your purchases without family sharing. But the downside of the family sharing is that it only supports 6 person in total to share the iTunes purchases. What’s worse, it’s also known that one single iTunes account (or Apple ID) can only authorize up to 5 computers. What if you want to share the iTunes purchases on the sixth machine or more?

Don’t worry. If you are just facing this kind of problem, simply read on the following guide, from which you’ll find the two best ways to share your iTunes purchased content, including movies, TV shows, audiobooks, iBooks, Apple Music to others with a few steps only.

Method 1. Share Purchased iTunes Media with Others via Family Sharing

If you have less than 6 people to share the iTunes purchases with, then you are recommended to use iTunes Family Sharing to share the iTunes content. It lets you add up to six family members. Once added, all members will get instant access to each other’s purchase and can view and download them on demand just as you already can from your own account. Family Sharing works in the iTunes store, iOS App Store, and the Mac App Store, so you can share content across all of your devices. Besides, with Family Sharing, you don’t have to share your passwords with each other, but must use one credit card for all devices.

How to Set Up Family Sharing to Share iTunes Purchases on Mac

Note: Family Sharing only works on Mac OS X Yosemite or later.

Step 1. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click iCloud.

Step 2. Click Manage Family.

Step 3. Click your name and review your account information next to Family Purchases.

Step 4. Make sure that Share my purchases is selected.

After you join a family, you can see and download items from each family member’s purchase history, and enjoy them on your own devices. You can download music, movies, TV shows, and books on up to 10 of your devices, five of which can be computers. You can download apps to any devices that you own or control.

Method 2. Share iTunes Purchases with Others by using iTunes DRM Removal Tools

This could be the best option if you need to share the iTunes purchased media to unlimited number of persons or computers. It helps you get rid of the DRM protection from all the protected iTunes content so that you can freely share the files to others as you like. Here we are talking about TunesKit DRM removal solutions, which will help you permanently remove DRM from all kinds of iTunes media, including iTunes movies, TV episodes, audiobooks, ebooks, songs, etc.

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.

Remove DRM Lock from iTunes M4V Movies, TV Shows, Music Videos

As one of the largest online stores selling digital copies of movies and TV episodes worldwide, iTunes ecosystem, regardless of the DRM copy right, has made it convenient for customers to pick up any hot movie piece in minutes. In order to get the full control of the purchased or even rented movies from iTunes, you need to use a third-party iTunes DRM removal tool to decrypt the DRM. The magic M4V media converter we are talking about here is TunesKit DRM M4V Converter for Mac (Windows). It’s an all-in-one DRM cracker that was designed to easily strip DRM protection from iTunes movies (rented and purchased), TV series, as well as music videos while converting the DRM-ed M4V videos to non-DRM MP4, M4V, MOV, AVI, MKV, MP3, AAC and other common media formats. It supports lossless conversion for the iTunes M4V movies to MP4 and M4V formats. That’s to say, it will keep the original quality, including AC3 5.1 audio, subtitles, Closed Captions, AD, etc. so that you can enjoy the same lossless quality as the original movies even after the DRM is removed.

Kill DRM from iBooks ePub eBooks

Because of the DRM protection, the books sold from iBooks store, unlike the common ePub files, are only recognizable by Apple’s devices. If you want to read the iBooks on other eBook readers, such as Amazon Kindle, or Nook, you’ll have to firstly bypass the DRM protection from those ePub books with some useful iBooks DRM removal applications, such as TunesKit DRM iBook Copy for Mac, a powerful and smart DRM cracker for iBooks on Mac. It’s able to remove DRM from eBooks with .epub and .ibooks extensions you purchased from iBooks or iTunes store. Once the DRM is unlocked from the books, you can freely convert the DRM-free iBooks to Mobi, AZW3, PDF or other popular eBook formats with Calibre eBook converter freeware.

TunesKit DRM Audible Converter Full Review – Remove DRM from Audible

audible-drm-cracker

If you are looking for a solution to free you from the DRM restriction of Audible audiobooks, then you should take a look at the newly released Audible DRM removal tool from TunesKit Studio called Audible Converter. As the name suggests, it’s an exclusively developed application for Audible audiobooks only. Here in this review, we’ll discuss the key features of this Audible DRM cracker and the performance on how it works when removing DRM from Audible audiobooks in details.

What is TunesKit DRM Audible Converter

Generally speaking, TunesKit Audible Converter is an innovative and smart DRM removal solution specially designed to bypass DRM protection from audiobooks we purchased and downloaded from Audible.com while converting the DRM-encrypted Audible audiobooks from AAX or AA format to non-DRM-protected MP3, M4A, WAV, WMA, FLAC, AAC, AC3, OGG, etc. with original metadata and chapters info preserved so that we can get full control of the Audible audiobooks by transferring the converted DRM-free books to any media player or device freely, such as iPod, Zune, Creative Zen, Sony Walkman, iRiver, etc.

System Requirements

TunesKit Audible Converter has both Windows and Mac versions. It’s fully compatible with all Windows OS, including the Windows XP, Vista, Win 7, Win 8 and the latest Windows 10. As for TunesKit Audible Converter for Mac, it works perfectly on the most recent macOS 10.12 Sierra, as well as the Mac OS X 10.11, 10.10, 10.9 and 10.8.

User Interface

audible-win-interface.png

Like the other DRM removal products developed by TunesKit Studio, this new Audible Converter is well designed with intuitive user interface that everyone could handle it easily. There are no redundant buttons or texts but only a few tidy icons which make the command straightforward and easily to understand.

Price & License

TunesKit Audible Converter for Mac (Windows) is sold at $29.95. Users are provided with free trial version of the program to test it out before buying. The limit of the trial version is that it only converts the first 1/3 content of each book. To unlock the app and convert the whole audiobook, users should pay $29.95 to get the full version.

How It Works to Convert Audible Audiobooks

Conversion Model

We call TunesKit Audible Converter innovative and special because it uses different conversion approach to strip off DRM from Audible audiobooks. Unlike the other DRM audiobook converters in the market, even including TunesKit’s existing Audiobook Converter, this new Audible converter app no longer requires iTunes to download and authenticate the audiobooks. Instead, it works straight from the Audible files downloaded to your computer. That’s to say, removing DRM from Audible will be as simple as dragging the downloaded audiobooks to the converter without needing to install extra software, such as iTunes.

Conversion Process

The conversion can’t be simpler. To remove DRM from an Audible audiobook, it only needs three clicks: add the book, set output format, and convert. To make it more specifically, let’s take TunesKit Audible Converter for Windows as an example to see how it performs in converting the DRM-ed Audile book to DRM-free formats.

Firstly, it provides two options to add the audiobooks either by clicking “Add Files” button or by dragging the books to the conversion window. And of course, it supports batch conversion so that we are allowed to add as many audiobooks as we want to convert once.

add-audible-audiobooks-win.png

Then the imported audiobooks will be listed on the main interface of TunesKit Audible Converter, displaying book title, author, time length, etc. We can edit the book title by moving the cursor to it and clicking the “edit” icon. The other bigger “edit” icon next to the book info can be used to split the large audiobook file into different small segments by time or by chapters.

split-audiobook.jpg

Now we move to the next step, that’s to set the output format for the audiobook. Currently TunesKit Audible Converter supports almost all popular audio formats, including MP3, M4A, AAC, AC3, OGG, WAV, WMA, M4B, AIFF, APE, M4R, MKA, AU, etc. To choose the target format, simply click the Format field at the bottom left of the converter. You can also customize the parameters, like codec, audio channel, sample rate, bit rate, etc. of those formats according to your own needs. And if you want the audiobook after conversion keeps the same audio quality as the original book, you should select the output format as “lossless” and it will generate the DRM-free audiobook by retaining the same audio codec, bit rate, channel as the original one. By the way, it also works the fastest under “lossless” setting.

audible-win-settings.png

Once all output settings are adjusted properly, we can begin to convert the DRM Audible audiobooks. All we need to do is click the “Convert” button at the bottom right of TunesKit Audible Converter interface and the books would be converted one by one in a few minutes only.

convert-audible-books-win.png

Conversion Speed & Quality

As we mentioned before, since this smart Audible audiobook converter doesn’t need to work together with iTunes or other apps, it will convert the hours-long DRM Audible audiobooks within a few seconds at up to 100X super faster speed. For example, a 7-hour long Audible AAX audiobook could be converted to DRM-free format in 5 seconds or so when the output format is set to be lossless. Moreover, the output quality will be as excellent as the original book. Take a look at the snapshots of the properties of original audiobook and converted one and you’ll see there’s no quality loss at all.
