free itunes drm removal software

FairPlay is a digital rights management (DRM) technology created by Apple to particularly control the use of its digital contents sold in iTunes Store. Generally speaking, all media files, including songs, audio books, movies, and TV shows downloaded from iTunes are encoded with FairPlay. In result, those specially protected iTunes videos and audios, even purchased, are restricted to be played on up to five authorized computers and iOS devices simultaneously.

If you are annoyed by the FairPlay DRM and need to remove the DRM from iTunes collection of movies, TV episodes, music or audiobooks, you should try some dedicated iTunes DRM removal apps, such as the top 3 free iTunes DRM removal software of 2018 and their alternatives recommended below that are aiming to bypass the DRM protection from all iTunes media so that you can play all iTunes videos and audios on as many media devices as you like.

requiem 4.1

Requiem(out of development since 2012) is a powerful free solution that removes FairPlay DRM from iTunes videos, as well as songs and iBooks. It decrypts the audio and video data of iTunes files by authenticating with the DRM library using the secret credentials used by iTunes itself. Therefore, it's able to keep the 100% lossless quality of original iTunes movies and other media without decoding and re-encoding the content. The converted movies and music are allowed to be played on non-Apple-approved devices like Samsung, HTC, Nokia, LG, Xbox 360, PSP, Zune, and so on.
