What about windows media DRM removal? That service is so vulnerable to servers going down and suddenly licensed media access is lost forever! No way to create a bit-accurate DRM windows media backup that is DRM free for when the authising company goes under or changes domain and leaves old customers behind.

Got this error message when opening DRmare Audio Converter 2.3.0 for Windows:
__________

CoreAnimationTestWindow:iTunes.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point

I kid you not.

[ WTF.dll ]

Programmers have a sense of humor, eh what?

It's an Apple iTunes message that I now see pops up when I open iTunes all on it's own.

And that tells me that this software depends on and or interacts with iTunes.

Apple seems averse to directly offering iTunes for Windows anymore, instead directing us to Microsoft store.

So this software for Windows is crippled multiple ways by depending in Apple iTunes that no longer directly supports Windows.

Cool.

Of course there are workarounds ... at Apple, scroll down to

"Looking for other versions? macOS Windows"

... and click on "Windows", duh, and the next webpage offers an Apple direct link:

https ://www. apple. com/itunes/download/win64

... even though the webpage expects you to have already clicked on the first offered link above to go to the Microsoft store.

Now I will download and reinstall iTunes to see if I can eliminate the error.
__________

Regardless, DRmare Audio Converter 2.3.0 for Windows looks like ONLY DRM removal-and-save a new file format.

This does NOT look like a general purpose audio converter for other input files, such as files that do not have DRM but are in other formats we might like to convert.

So DRmare Audio Converter 2.3.0 for Windows is a [ DRM-removal-and-save-as ] program.

NOT an [ audio file converter ] program.

Oh well.

One trick ponl then.

I personally never use DRM material, but if I find someone who does, perhaps I can try this on their stuff to see if it removes DRM, and then I can give feedback.

Now my assignment is to find someone with DRM material in the next 6 months, copy it to my computer, deDRM-and-save-as, and report.

Peter Blaise, are you saying that it does not JUST remove the DRM and leaves the original AAC encoded data but hooks into the desktop iTunes playback chain post DRM removal and then has to re-encode the uncompressed unprotected digital stream with a lossy codec or maybe FLAC if you want the best possible quality at the cost of storage size over the original DRM AAC file?

I take that back.

DRmare Audio Converter 2.3.0 for Windows DOES appear to be an audio file format converter, including input audio files that have no DRM, and output files seem playable on all my players.

So, YES, this is a format-converter, and a DRM remover, separate and independent features.

So far, so good.

NOT as smart as FLACsquisher that can scan a whole directory schema for matching files and converted files and ONLY convert new and unconverted files.

But MANUALLY selecting input and output locations, and organizing things one's self.

In response to [ TK],

... um, I don't know nor care, because I don't have or use DRM-sourced music, I only want to convert to ( the best quality ) MP3, for playability across all my music software and devices.

Someone else will have to inspect how faithful is any result, sorry.

TK,

Yes, it REQUIRES iTunes desktop to be installed. The second you launch the software, it searches for your iTunes install. I did not have it installed and it promptly complained that it could not find the install and wanted me to tell it where it was installed. Since I have a bunch of old music from iTunes that I wanted to remove the DRM and convert, I downloaded and installed iTunes. Once installed, the software was happy.

When you launch Audio Converter, it automatically launches iTunes at the same time. Audio Convert has a nice single-button you click and it adds your entire iTunes library to the queue to be converted. I told it to convert, and nothing happened. It said it was running, but was doing nothing. I eventually figured it out; I had to sign into my Apple account in iTunes and authorize the PC on my account. After that, everything went smoothly.

Audio Converter seems to somehow play back your music at a super fast speed in iTunes, and must capture it during that playback. It then creates an MP3 file of the captured audio. Either way it works for the most part. I did have to make like 8 conversion runs because iTunes kept crashing and interrupting the conversion process. Thankfully Audio Converter keeps tract of the music that has already been converted so when iTunes crashed, I could close Audio Converter and relaunch it, add my library back in, selecting the check box to hide the music that had already been converted, and re-queue and convert again.

colour choices make it unusable -- light grey on white--get realistic--black on white or yellow on black

That's silly. I used it just fine. But evidently, you only use software with colors you like. LOL!

In response to [ Bibby ], yellow-on-black was just an example, the goal is discreet contrast so items are readable and identifiable, and that's very hard to do with gray on white on display screens with unknown resolution, contrast, and angle of view.

Anyone know where I can find a program that will remove the copyright and other protections from DRmare Audio Converter 2.3.0 for Windows?

Reply   |   Comment by Jeff  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-8)

In response to [ Jeff ], DRmare Audio Converter 2.3.0 for Windows does not have and DRM digital rights management locks, encryption, or tethering, so it can be copied anywhere without failure or prohibition from automatic locks.

The way music used to be when we bought a phonograph album, cassette, or CD.

We would prefer to find a program that could remove your comments from the internet.

Jeff, This is not really the right place to ask that question AND get a positive answer since no moderator would approve such a reply unedited. Apparently it is fine to disrespect 3rd party copyright owners like music distributor and content creator rights or open source software developer rights but it is never acceptable HERE to disrespect the contributing vendors copyrights openly even if they are abusing GPLv3 licenced products like FFMPEG static or dynamicly linked tools or content creator/distributor rights.

Now now, [ TK ], copyright owners have no superior rights over people's rights to make in-house copies for their own use in house.

DRM, however, is significant disrespect from copyright owners against the legally equal rights of people in their homes to freely and legally do what they want with whatever arrives in their homes.

We've been through this before - if you obtain a phonograph record of my copyright work, I have no superior authority or right to claim copyright damages if you play it backward, make a cassette copy, break it, melt it to mold into an ashtray, mount a clock mechanism in it and put it on your wall, and so on.

There's nothing illegal or nefarious about DRmare Audio Converter 2.3.0 for Windows or our use of it in house on stuff we have in house.

But thanks for reminding us that copyright owners live in the 1900s and refuse to join the modern world and develop modern value-added copyright material beyond digital reproduction.

Orchestra's sued piano roll makers, too.

Peter Blaise, double post there ... regulars are well aware of your selective interpretation of copyright laws... DMCA in USA, which supercedes every prior supreme court ruling you like to base your argument on, makes it illegal to remove DRM from DRM protected media. period.

Similarly the UK and EU have modifed their copyright laws to take into account DRM protections and protecting the use of DRM where it is done in a legal manner. You may have a personal dislike of DRM as do I but that is neither here nor there. Me or You preaching self-invented lies as if it was a legal argument denouncing the legal use of DRM does not make it illegal to use DRM and does not make it legal to remove said DRM. The desire to remove DRM from electronic media is the action of someone wanting to turn BACK the clock to the late 1900's before DRM matured somewhat. Copyright owners set the EULA whether it be music, video, software or artwork. If you don't like the license terms and DRM don't guy through that media outlet. Simple really if you look at it honestly!

In response to [ TK ], and DRM jurisdiction enforcement collapses inside our own homes, where "... if you obtain a phonograph record of my copyright work, I have no superior authority or right to claim copyright damages if you play it backward, make a cassette copy, break it, melt it to mold into an ashtray, mount a clock mechanism in it and put it on your wall, and so on ..."

The reason there are no test cases is because there are not cases to test.

More importantly, and more on point, the dialog has been more a moral one of "... how dare you copy something without permission?!? ..." which has nothing to do with "pirating" IP intellectual property theft and selling fakes.

A significant part of legal decisions has been the financial impact on the copyright holder, and in our own homes, there is none.

GOTD offerings such as DRmare Audio Converter 2.3.0 for Windows are safe to use in our own homes - and I check everything for functional safety at VirusTotal too.

PS - If you can find an appropriate Spotify TOS Terms Of Service, read it, or read them all, to assess their boundaries yourself, the one I found is rated at [ wordcounter. net ] as college level and half an hour to 45 minutes just to read, no comment on how long it takes understand, as anything above a 4th grade level usually requires multiple re-reading of inner content and total content in order to develop a functional understanding, and then there are arguments over ambiguity and jurisdiction that would take even longer ... wanna listen to some background music while working on this?

Peter Blaise, please do not mis-quote your falatious writings in a manner that implies it was something I wrote!
Copyright on "Phonograph" media is not on the media itself but on the content contained thereon.
Why are you writing about 1900s tech? I thought you were all about modern media!

At the time in the late 1900s when "Phonograph" were rife so were commercial cassette tapes of the same content. So ripping content of the "Phonograph" to duplicate it onto a consumer cassette tape was depriving the rights owners and distributors of the legitimate income from cassette sales in addition consumer playback and recording equipment significantly degrades the content adding rumble, wow, flutter and hiss and scratches to the cassette recording significantly taking away from the original creative work which could be argued gives the content producer a bad name if that mutilated pirate recording is heard by any 3rd party and thought to be a commercial cassette recording... arguments can be made for reasons why unathorised duplication is prohibited beyond pure financal considerations or the fear of others placing controls upon you which you apear to have.

It IS in the spirit and letter of international copyright law illegal to make unathorised reproductions of ANY currently copyright content in your own home or anywhere else the fact that such prosicutions are only brought by state criminal prossicution offices is whether the case is considered financially worthwhile or not. And if not it does not make it legal... it just increases the odds against prosicution in the future but does not negate the legislation that remains untested and un challenged in a court of law. Again a private criminal case can be brought by the copyright owners but that is expensive to even bring the case against an individual who in most cases would be considered a "man of straw" in other words if the accused lost the case they could not pay costs of the complainant so while it would remove the fantasy you live in it would be unproductive for the copyright owner. It's not difficult the letter and spirit of law is well known and it is irresepctive of whether it has been exercised in a court of law.

If you are lucky you can kill someone in your own home and get away with it, if undetected, that does not make it lawful or right. The only reason that situation does have test cases is the state criminal prosicution deems murder worthy of public resources to prossicute and therefore deem in the public interest to prossicute.

If you find it difficult to understand the intent and wording of Spotify TOS take it up with Spotify or your English teachers! It is not really that difficult unless what you are really doing is not looking to follow their terms but are instead hunting for loop-holes and ambiguities that let you justify content and bandwidth theft by downloading advert free tracks for offline use and so depriving Spotify of their advert revenue on a free account... now you would not be doing that would you? Nooooo LOL

In response to [ TK ],

So, according to you, a phonograph recording is a bad analogy to in-home reuse of Spotify-sourced IP intellectual property ...

... but murder is a good analogy ... to in-home reuse of Spotify-sourced IP intellectual property.

Murder, really?

And then you add, so to speak, denying Spotify their ad revenue, unaware of them getting their ad revenue before anyone even experiences their product, soft of like tearing out advertising from Oprah magazine to then read the remaining 4 pages of content - Oprah has already been paid by their advertisers, and we are free to ignore, even tear out the advertising and toss it, or in the age of digital broadcast, filter it and eliminate it entirely.

Because in our home, other people's copyright rights have no superior jurisdiction.

And I did read Spotify's TOS, no teacher required or appropriate, but reviewing specific court arguments and decisions helps contextualize, along with the US Constitution, the Berne Convention treaties, and so on..

I doubt you are basing your presentation on Spotify's TOS, court cases, or international treaties.

Regardless, DRmare Audio Converter 2.3.0 for Windows and GOTD seem to be offering useful programs for us to explore and give feedback on.

I've shared mine.

What is your experience of DRmare Audio Converter 2.3.0 for Windows?

6 month 'trial' ain't no 'giveaway'.....it's a 'trial' pure and simple. Pass.

Reply   |   Comment by JohnH  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+34)

In response to [ JohnH ], correct, vendors sometimes limit the duration of their offering, thereby declining to actually give away the "product", but instead giving away "access" to the product for a limited time.

"Giveaway" means something different to each new generation of marketers.

One wonders in return if we can charge the vendor for feedback after the expiration of the trial period, instead of giving away our feedback, as we otherwise so willingly do here at GOTD.

What do you think, folks, should GOTD institute a pay-for feedback after the trial period, where we get a prorated portion of advertising revenue income form the webpage we contribute to IF the vendor on that webpage no longer is offering what is on the webpage free?

How about a GOTD Partner Program ( like on Quora - see https ://www. patchesoft. com/quora-partner-program )

Reply   |   Comment by Bibby  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

Peter Blaise, I suggest that feedback is extra and should be chargable per word from the day of the giveaway onwards. The freeness of the giveaway is just part of the price for admision to installation on any of our execution environments... testing and evaluation and reports on bugs, design problems and suggestions for improvements are not included in the freeness of the giveaway. The only thing also included in the freeness is IF the giveaway license terms are honourable i.e. a currently sold version with license duration currently sold and non-expiring if they sell a non-expiring license model and do not do shady things like force subscribing to newsletters or other unecesary personal data harvesting like email addresses, AND the product given away turns out to be good and useful then the freeness may include word of mouth promotion of the product should one have any aquantance that is known could benefit from the product and act as an uncontracted marketing agent. Obviously dishonourable giveaway vendors do not earn that last benefit. In some cases some of our comments are contraversal and actually increase advert revenue since readers come back multiple times during the day just to see how a comment thread has been responed to and the thread progresses like a soap opera... ;-)
