Removing DRM from iTunes Video – Mac OS X Software please?!
I have searched for hours today trying to find a freeware or buy a program to remove the DRM from my iTunes videos of the Office Season 5 so that I can burn them to DVD. I called Apple and they told me there are freeware programs that will do this. All I can find is numerous Windows based programs or programs catering to music only converting.
There’s got to be a program out there to remove DRM from iTunes video. Yes, I have already looked at the similar posts on this and the replies to those weren’t helpful at all. A screen recorder is not an option. I know this can be done somehow… does anyone know where to find such software?
