    Play DRM Protected Files in Media Programs


    I have been trying different media center programs to see if they will play my protected DRM files downloaded from amazon instant video. I have not had any success so far except when playing the files in Windows Media Player.

    I did a little research on google and found a couple of sources:


    I'm not sure if these links are related to the problem. Anyone have any thoughts on my issue?

    Hi there

    Normally "De-Drm'ing" might be against the Forum rules but as you want to WATCH your OWN Video and not pirate it here goes

    Aimersoft DRM Media Converter: DRM Removal to Remove DRM | OFFICIAL

    I HATE all this DRM stuff which a) stops you backing up stuff and b) stops you using it on any of your devices - I travel a lot so I like having some video on a phone / iPad/tablet.

    Program above is not free but there is a trial period so you can see if it does what you want.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the reply.

    I took a look at the program. It says that it retains 100% of the quality. Is this only in the full version or the trial?
    I evaluated the trial and I could clearly see that the output was not 100% quality.
    Does anyone have the full version and know if this only applies to the full version?
