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?

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

Extended Reading – Different DRM Technologies You Should Know

Apple’s FairPlay DRM Copyright Protection for iTunes

Like FairPlay used by Apple, Amazon and Microsoft also adopt DRM technology to encrypt media files sold from its online digital store. We are not allowed to transfer or play media files, including WMA, WMV, AA, etc purchased from Amazon Instant Video or Windows Media Center.

CSS DRM Encryption on DVD Discs

DRM protection added to DVDs may be the earliest DRM system introduced by content providers. It was named Content Scrambling System (CSS). The CSS encryption still exists now in many DVDs. It encrypts the DVD disc and protects it from copying. Manufacturers of DVD players must be authorized by the DRM content provider to play their DVD content. More DRM encryption like DeCSS, AACS, RCE are developed later to encrypt DVD Films.

How to Choose A Good iTunes DRM M4V Converter

It’s important for iTunes users who want to remove DRM lock from movies purchased or rented from iTunes store to find out a great iTunes DRM M4V Converter. But since there are so many similar iTunes DRM removal tools claiming to easily remove DRM off from iTunes M4V, it’s more difficult to choose the best iTunes DRM M4V Converter from a huge amount of choices. But don’t worry. We will now in the article to show you what to consider when choosing an iTunes DRM M4V Converter from different parts.

Supported iTunes Video Files

One of the most important things to consider when choosing the best iTunes M4V converter for you has something to do with the video sources that you want to strip DRM from. If you only have a lot of iTunes M4V movie purchases, then a DRM M4V Converter that only supports purchased iTunes videos is enough for you since it will always be cheaper than the one that works for both iTunes M4V rentals and purchases. But if you are used to renting iTunes movies, then you have to choose iTunes converter that supports not only rentals but also the purchases since there’s no such a iTunes DRM M4V Converter only works with iTunes rentals. Currently the existing iTunes DRM M4V Converter in the market are all supposed to convert iTunes M4V purchases. But only a few of them are able to remove DRM from both rented and purchased iTunes movies.

Performing Speed

Another important fact to consider for a great iTunes DRM M4V converter should be the conversion speed. Currently most of the available iTunes video converter in the world adopt the recording technology to remove DRM from iTunes movies. That’s to say, the M4V DRM remover will record and capture the image and audio of the iTunes M4V files in the background while decrypting the DRM from the videos. The drawback of this technology is that such kind of iTunes DRM M4V Converter would work as long as the original movie’s length to convert the whole file. You’ll wait for about hours to get each file totally converted if the original iTunes movie is hours long. So you can image how long it will take if you have a lot of movies to convert at once. But fortunately, there are also a few iTunes DRM M4V Converter that could work at super high speed, like 20-30x faster in removing DRM from those files for they adopts advanced DRM decryption technique instead of the recording one.
