“I have rented some iTunes video files, including iTunes movies and iTunes TV shows. The iTunes rentals have expiry dates, but I am considering keeping those iTunes rentals in my computer’s hard drive for future playback. Can you give me a solution in doing this? Thanks in advance!”

Yes, there is a solution I know that can help. Actually, either iTunes video purchases and rentals can be DRM removed with iTunes video DRM removal software. Prior to the existence of iTunes video DRM removal software, many people use screen recording software (video DRM removal freeware) to remove DRM from iTunes video, but this method is not only time-wasting, but also causes quality loss. Here in this post, I am going to introduce a piece of iTunes video removal software to you for removing iTunes video DRM.

Part 1: Why Remove iTunes Video DRM?


As is well known to us all, iTunes videos are protected by Apple DRM. So, why do we remove Apple DRM video? Well, iTunes videos cannot be played elsewhere other than on iTunes. Even after purchasing videos from iTunes Store, you can only enjoy iTunes videos on limited devices authorized by the Apple ID used to purchase those videos. Apple’s DRM makes it impossible to freely play iTunes videos. In order to play those iTunes videos on any device, you need to remove DRM from iTunes videos. After removing iTunes video DRM, you can play the video files on any media player, and you can also transfer those video files to other devices for on-the-go playback.

Let’s say, you have a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge phone, and would like to watch iTunes videos on the phone, what can you do? Of course you can remove DRM from iTunes videos and then transfer the removal result to the phone.
