By Tony Moton

December 27, 2017

"I bought a movie from iTunes but I need an iTunes DRM removal to help me play the movie on my Android phone. Any recommendation?"


Many iTunes users would ask if there is an iTunes DRM removal software that can get rid of the annoyed FairPlay DRM and enable them to enjoy iTunes media everywhere without being locked in Apple's ecosystem.  Due to DRM protection, users cannot freely use their legally purchased iTunes contents. For instance, a movie purchased from the iTunes Store can't be played on devices like Samsung Android smartphone, Kindle Fire, Sony TV, and etc.


In terms of music from iTunes, you cannot get the downloaded Apple Music playback even on your MP3 player including iPod Classic/Nano/Shuffle because of Apple Music's device restrictions. To get around this, the ultimate and necessary solution is to get an iTunes DRM removal software.


There is so much inconvenience caused by Apple Fairplay DRM. Luckily, we've rounded up several useful iTunes DRM removal software programs to get all your iTunes songs, movies, audiobooks, and Apple Music free from DRM.

3.Requiem - Remove DRM from iTunes Music & Movies

User Rating: 4.3/5

Supporting OS: Windows & Mac & Linux


Pros:

• Remove DRM from iTunes M4P Music;

• Remove DRM from M4B audiobooks purchased from iTunes;

• Remove DRM from iTunes movies, TV shows, and music videos.


Cons:

• Out of development for years;

• Cannot convert iTunes rentals.


Review: Requiem DRM removal is a well-known free iTunes DRM removal program. However, it had stopped updating since version 4.1. Now, it only supports iTunes 9.0.2 or lower, and it doesn't work with Mac OS X 10.8 or above. Still, if you need a free iTunes DRM removal program and feel okay to downgrade your iTunes version, Requiem can be a preferable choice. And it needs to be noted that Requiem cannot strip DRM from iTunes rentals but only iTunes purchases. Therefore, if you need to convert iTunes rented movies, you may turn to TuneFab M4V Converter.
