Does not work!
I tried repetitively to convert one of my videos that i bought through iTunes.
It stands still at 0% but doesn't go any further!
What a disappointment!

This program seems non-functional.

I have iTunes version 12.7.0.166 installed.
I bought a documentary and it's downloaded on my hard disk.
TuneFab "see's" the M4v video in my iTunes and offers to have it converted.

When i click on "convert" it seems to start the conversion process because it shows 0% with a little rotating thingy just above it. But nothing further happens.
I've tried resetting my computer and rerunning the program countless times, it just stands at 0% even after half an hour and nothing happens.
I have Windows 10, latest version installed.
What gives?

Apple, like many another provider, uses Digital Rights Management technology to protect its wares, in this instance, Fairplay, deployed on iTunes Store media like video and ebooks. (Apple no longer deploys Fairplay on purchased audio.)

Fairplay, says Apple, is a form of copy protection intended to ensure that 'fair usage' isn't breached by illegal file sharers. Although not yet tested by UK courts -- US courts may be different -- 'fair usage' would seem to extend to a purchaser the right to make a back-up copy of the commercial video which she / he has purchased for her / his own use.

DRM Fairplay removal / conversion of Apple's M4V proprietary format has been the subject of many an article on the 'Net in the past 10 years or so, including this report from How To Geek:

https://www.howtogeek.com/291612/how-to-remove-drm-from-itunes-movies-and-tv-shows/

and nowadays there are at least two developers, other than today's, who specialise in this particular activity:

http://www.noteburner.com/m4v-converter-plus-for-windows.html

http://www.tuneskit.com

hence why I don't entirely understand the reference in today's giveaway text to TuneFab's product being "the first recommended solution".

Like today's developer, both the above make mention of the fact that their software can effectively transform a time-limited iTunes Store rental into a permanently owned acquisition.

I've no time for Apple, not least because its locked OS, clunky iTunes, and DRM-protected M4V has long been an obstacle course I can easily live without especially when there are so many, many alternatives to buying or renting anything at all from the iTunes Store. I also think Apple is more than capable of taking action to defend itself against everything from petty fraud to large scale piracy.

On which basis then, it seems to me that the poster at comment #1 would seem perfectly entitled to go ahead and breach every tenet of the 'fair usage' principle by utilising this software in the manner that comment so enthusiastically describes.

Not, however, for me. Thanks, GOTD, but no thanks.

MikeR, The phrase "the first recommended solution". is just a marketing phrase that means nothing other than they recomend their product first. After all TuneFab aren't about to recommend a competetors solution first are they?

In my understanding of UK designs and copyright act this software or devices whose stated sole function is to defeat/remove a copyright protection technology from copyright protected content makes it illegal to sell in the UK. It should also be illegal in the USA too under DMCA. Since part of the selling price is the restriction to be only allowed to play the content on authorised devices. If one wanted to buy the extra licensed right to use it on different devices then the price per item would be significantly higher!

Fair usage usually refers to the need to be able to make backups of the media such as DRM protected DVD, Blu-ray Discs or VHS tapes. But with M4V files one can freely make digital backups of the M4V files AND keep the DRM intact so the right to strip the DRM to make backups is not protected by fair usage doctrine since it is not necesary to do so.

As the program opens it looks for iTunes. If it isn't found, then it won't function. Uh, isn't the reason for this sort of program to unlock DRM so that you can use what you might have purchased in the past on a current no-iTunes computer?

Useless. Gone.

Lighter, (Myself) Note that iTunes is listed in the Requirements.

Lighter, like TunesKit Audiobook Converter and DRmare M4V Converter, this is just another re-recorder. It isn't a true "converter". It needs iTunes to play the video file, so the program can re-record it without DRM.

CJ Cotter, Thank you. Now it's clear to me.

The Setup is short:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/4duthllpwrsvl8p/Setup.png
The registration is easy, just put in the code from the Readme:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/pkmv74oo7lhhquz/Registratie.png
The program does not check, if iTunes is installed. It just starts iTunes(which is not installed in this Windows):

And About, nothing about the length of the license:

Can't enter the registration key. The popup registration screen at startup will not allow a paste from the readme or manual text entry.

I am a movie lover, and I found it really economical to use it to convert my itunes videos to MP4, because you know, removine the DRM, I can share the movies with my whole family, and my friends, and the most important is, I can keep my rentals as long as I want, in case I want to watch it twice or something. So, I do like it, a lot :D

chloe, "I can share the movies with my whole family, and my friends,"
Is the meaning of renting not, that you can see something for a period of time at your own house?
And also that you should not give copies to other people?
You do not own it, you rent it.
Maybe it is OK, when you remove the limitation, so you can show the movie on a machine without iTunes etc.

Ash01, I don't own the rentals of course, but sometimes it's for my convenience, and I don't share with lots of people.
