How to remove iTunes' video DRM?

Is there a way to remove the DRM from iTunes video?

Really, I don't even care to burn a DVD, I just want to play the videos in MPC... or ANYTHING other than stupid freakin' Quicktime...

perhaps just a little patience is now required. Based on his recently published article, if Steve Jobs has his way, DRM may be removed from ALL downloadable audio in the near future ;>}

I think he was just trying to cater to the public -- to look cool, basically.

Even if he was serious, it sounded more like he was voicing his opinion on the matter, not actually planning on any action...

I'm really surprised. With all the cracking going on, not a single video game gets through, and DVDs are all crackable with a click. I find it hard to believe that no one has figured out the trick with iTunes' DRM. But then again, I know nothing of programming or cracking. :P

I don't really follow the iTunes situation, however at one point around 4.6 - 4.7 time it was discovered that Apple actually sends files unencrypted, and they get encrypted locally. Someone (For some reason DVD Jon's name comes to mind) wrote an iTMS client, that emulated iTunes, bought and downloaded music, but never encrypted it. Apple revved the software within less then a week (which shows you where their priorities lay), disabling this fix, and forcing a check that the software connecting is actually a valid version of iTunes.

If it's still the client doing the encryption, I'd imagine that with sufficient effort it would theoretically be possible to write an iTunes plugin or kernel module that acts as a proxy, but essentially sits between iTMS and iTunes, saving any downloads as unencrypted files in process. In practice, I don't know how complex it would be, and if it's still the end user software that does the encryption (Or if you download it encrypted from iTMS now a days).

Wasn't the original question about removing DRM for Video? The announcements about DRM less audio has nothing to do with this.

Don't know if this will help...but do a google search for ipod ripper.
I used it to get my drm music off my ipod. So I could play my purchased itune music in other media players.

Well, there is a way to convert drm videos into non-protected videos.
But you need a third-party tool, and I can assure you any tool that can remove drm and preserve the original video quality is not free.
So among the paid-for converter, I recommend TunesKit M4V Converter. Not only because the price is reasonable, but also because it can do the job pretty well and fast.
