Top 5 Best DRM Removal Programs Review for Android, Windows 8 Tablets/Phones

Are you looking for DRM Removal software? This article covers the best DRM Removal programs to use for legally removing DRM protection from your video, music, TV show files with high quality and keep subtitles. The Best DRM Removal review will help you find the best DRM video removal tool to free your DRM protected video and TV show files.

Best DRM Removal Programs Review

What's DRM File?

Digital rights management (DRM) is a class of controversial technologies that are used by hardware manufacturers, publishers, copyright holders, and individuals with the intent to control the use of digital content and devices after sale.

The use of digital rights management is not universally accepted. Some content providers claim that DRM is necessary to fight copyright infringement online and that it can help the copyright holder maintain artistic control or ensure continued revenue streams. Proponents argue that digital locks should be considered necessary to prevent "intellectual property" from being copied freely, just as physical locks are needed to prevent personal property from being stolen. Those opposed to DRM contend there is no evidence that DRM helps prevent copyright infringement, arguing instead that it serves only to inconvenience legitimate customers, and that DRM helps big business stifle innovation and competition. Furthermore, works can become permanently inaccessible if the DRM scheme changes or if the service is discontinued.

DRM File Main Types:

1. iTunes Video File

According to Apple, iTunes supports any video format that works with QuickTime and files purchased or downloaded from iTunes store. That means if your video files have a .mov, .m4v, or .mp4 file extension, generally you can play them in iTunes. However, there are also limitations on video codecs, sample rate, etc. So if your .mov, .m4v or .mp4 files are rejected by iTunes, that may be because of a codec problem. What's more, if you want to transfer these protected iTunes videos and movies to non-iPod player like Archos, Android tablets/phone, Windows 8 tablets/phones, BlackBerry Z10, Zune, PSP, etc., you need to legally remove DRM protection with a professional DRM Remover and record the videos to your devices supported formats.

2. Blu-ray/DVD Digital Copy

A Digital Copy is a commercially distributed computer file containing a media product such as a film or music album. The term contrasts this computer file with the physical copy (typically a DVD or Blu-ray Disc) with which the Digital Copy is usually offered as part of a bundle. It allows the disc's purchaser to create a single copy of the movie on a computer, and to view it on that computer's display or an external display (e.g. television) connected to that computer.

Digital Copy is a special product, bundled with your recent DVD or Blu-ray™ purchase, which provides you with a digital version of the movie. You may transfer your "Digital Copy" to your Mac®, PC and iTunes®-compatible devices (such as the iPod® touch, iPhone® and iPad™) or redeem your Digital Copy with one streaming on-demand movie service (such as VUDU or Amazon).

You can download more DRM videos from Windows Media Center, Amazon Videos, BBC iPlayer, Zune Marketplace, CinemaNow, Blockbuster, Napster, Pandora, Spiralfrog, Bearshare, iMesh, iMeeM and more.


If you have downloaded DRM-protected videos, movies or music, then you have probably discovered how annoyingly restrictive DRM technology is. Not only do you have the problem of working out what portable media players it will work on, but your freedom to use your downloads how you please is also crippled. DRM copy protection is great as an anti-piracy technology, but it often punishes consumers that have legally purchased media. Here is a selection of the best software that removes DRM legally (doesn't hack DRM encryption) and produces DRM-free media files that you can enjoy on practically any capable device, including all Android and Windows 8 tablets or smartphones.

P.S. These programs can free you from the DRM restrictions that tie music and movie files, and also help you solve the format incompatibility issues, so you can enjoy DRMed music or movie files on any media player, and not limited to Android-based devices. Besides, the 5+ best DRM removal softwares are picked from dozens of DRM products.

Top 3. Tunebite 6 (available for Windows only)

Tunebite 6, which is part of the much larger Audials One media suite, is a DRM removal tool that takes advantage of the analog loophole.

Top 4. Noteburner m4v Converter (available for Windows or for Mac users)

As one of the best DRM removal softwares, NoteBurner's simplicity makes it a joy to use and it does an excellent job of converting different audio formats, including DRM protected videos. Actuall, this DRM removal tool is an iTunes video DRM removal software which can only remove DRM control and convert iTunes m4v movie purchase and rental.

However, it doesn't allow you to get rid of restriction from other DRM-protected contents like Digital Copy, Amazon Instant Videos etc. Meanwhile the price is a little higher.

$49.95. NoteBurner upgrade service is free.

Top 5. AppleMacSoft DRM Converter 2

DRM removal software for the Mac is a bit thin on the ground compared to the PC, but AppleMacsoft DRM converter comes to the rescue; incidentally, there is also a Windows version. The software uses a virtual CD writer (same method as Noteburner 2) in conjunction with the iTunes software to legally produce a DRM-free copy of the original. The software makes use of the importing feature in iTunes to capture to a particular format. The output file formats that you can convert to are, MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV.

$29.95 for 15 Days.

Top 5+. MuvAudio 2

Similar to SoundTaxi, MuvAudio 2 uses Windows Media Player to process DRM-protected audio and video files into DRM-free copies. The program can convert multiple files simultaneously with up to 10 times normal playback speed. MuvAudio 2 has excellent built-in file format support for both audio and video; you can also download additional plugins from the MuvAudio website that extend file format support for less popular formats. MuvAudio 2 has the facility to automatically search for missing album art and ID3 tags.

$18.99. Trial Limitations: Converted files are limited to 60 seconds.

DRM technology has been both a boon and a bane. While manufacturers have rejoiced as it has provedits efficiency as a great anti piracy tool, the everyday users of the internet like you and I have had tosuffer because this hampered with the freedom of us using the downloads in the way that was bestsuited to our needs. It is true that there is a plethora of media players available today and therefore only a DRM removal software that is applicable across all players is one that is a perfect choice.

The conclusion

As we all know, the Mac apps for removing DRM are very rare. And I find Pavtube ChewTune for Mac/Noteburner M4V Converter Plus for Mac is a versatile DRM removal tool(DRM Video Recorder) to bypass DRM protection from iTunes/Amazon Movie purchases and rentals on Mac Leopard, Snow Leopard and Lion in high speed. Pavtube ChewTune for Mac is able to legally remove DRM protection and convert DRM protected movies/TV shows/music/videos to H.264/MPEG-4, DivX, XviD, MKV, MP4, AVI, MPEG, WMV, FLV, SWF, F4V, MOV, 3GP, 3G2, VOB, TS, DV compatible with Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Tab 3, Galaxy Tab 2, Galaxy S4/S3, Surface RT/Pro, Google New Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Sony Xperia Z1, HTC One, Moto X, Sony PSP, PS3, Xbox 360, HTC Flyer, Thunderbolt, etc except for Apple devices(include iPhone 5S/5C/5, iPad 4/3, iPod 5, Apple TV 3 and so on). Noteburner M4V Converter Plus for Mac is able to remove DRM protection from purchased and rented iTunes movies, TV shows, music videos and convert DRM M4V to WMV, MPEG, MP4, AVI, ASF, 3GP, 3G2, FLV, SWF, MOV, VOB, F4V for various kinds of PMPs, smart phones, tablets, etc.

If you've transferred some Digital Copy movies to your PC, you may want to get them ported over to your Surface RT for playback. However, when you tried to open them with xbox video they would not open and continued to give error messages says "can't play". So what if any Digital Copies work on Microsoft Surface RT?  

Basically, film makers use DRM (Digital Right Managemet) to protect their copy-right. This prevent you from watching the movies with an unauthorized media player or portable device. It is a pleasure that the Windows Media Player is one of the authorized media players. However, Microsoft didn't include Windows Media Player or Windows Media Center in Windows RT. This means Digital Copy movies will not even play on Microsoft Surface RT. 

Despite lack of offical support, you can view Digital Copy movies on Surface RT. It just takes a few more steps and only comes with some help from third-party software. But it can be done. Below is how: 

Note: Before conversion you need first to transfer Digital Copy to computer in Windows Media (.wmv) or iTunes video format (.m4v). If you have no idea about how, check my earlier post "Blu-ray/DVD Digital Copy: Transfer, Play and Backup" to learn details. 

Step 1: Download and install ChewTune

When converting protected Digital Copy WMV or M4V files, please make sure you videos play well in Windows Media Player or iTunes (Windows Media Player or iTunes is required for the conversion). Otherwise, the conversion may fail. 

Step 2: Click "Add" button to import your Digital Copy movies or just drag and drop the movies to the software. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files to convert at a time.

Add iTunes movie

Step 3: Click "Format" bar and move mouse to "Windows" column, you can easily find the profile of "Microsoft Surface Windows RT H.264 Video (*.mp4)". The output videos could fit on Surface RT tablet perfectly. If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. 

iTunes to Android format  

Step 4: Click the big "Convert" button to begin encoding your Digital Copy to Surface RT playable videos. 

Once the encoding task completes, you can transfer the result videos to your SD card for your Surface. There now you know how to get Digital Copy movies onto your Microsoft Surface RT tablet so you can watch them on that gorgeous screen! 

This workaround works with Windows 8, Windows 8.1 as well, of course.
