Apple’s iTunes store has a whopping collection of high-quality movies, TV shows and music files which users can download and watch in various Apple devices including iPad, iPhone, iPod, Apple TV and Mac.

What’s annoying is the fact that it is not possible to watch videos downloaded or rented from iTunes Store on a non-Apple device as the video files available in the iTunes store are in M4V format, encrypted with DRM (Digital Rights Management) copy protection created by Apple. This is the reason that users cannot transfer them onto an Android or Windows based device or common video player for playing. They are required to convert DRM-Protected iTunes Movies or TV shows to DRM-Free MP4 format in order to play them on non-Apple devices. Here comes ‘M4VGear DRM Media Converter’ to the rescue.

Although there are many DRM removal software available, we have come across M4VGear DRM Media Converter, which seems to be offering everything that one would need for iTunes DRM removal.

M4VGear DRM Media Converter available for Windows and Mac OS X operating system allows users to easily and quickly convert all M4V video files including user’s iTunes purchase or rentals (including iTunes Extras) to unprotected video and audio formats like MP4, MOV and MP3. On using the converter, we found that it preserves 100% original video quality which is just great.

Another feature that is great is the predefined output profiles that allows outputting iTunes videos to iOS devices like iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as well as Android devices like Samsung devices, Google Nexus series, etc.

It perhaps is the fastest M4V Converter in the market with interface in English, German, French & Japanese. The software makes use of an innovative decrypting technique, which removes the DRM protection twenty times faster than other converters. We found that M4VGear can remove DRM from a 2-hour movie in about twenty minutes. Removing DRM-Protection also allows users to create backup of iTunes movies and transfer it to multiple devices at the same time.

We found that the one feature which makes M4VGear DRM Media Converter stand out is that it can keep AC3 Dolby 5.1 audio when removing DRM from iTunes videos, while it’s other competitors fail to do. Output videos from M4VGear also keep all the movies’ subtitles after conversion.

The flexible software supports all the latest iTunes and Mac versions including Mac OS 10.7, 10.8, Mavericks 10.9 and Yosemite 10.10 and the latest iTunes 12.1, so there’s nothing to worry about any compatibility issue. Furthermore, the M4VGear DRM Media Converter will constantly be upgraded for each new system and iTunes.

Another feature we found appealing about this software is its intuitive interface and self-explanatory options which makes it possible for a person with little or no knowledge of using the software to handle M4VGear DRM Media Converter at the first sight that too with complete ease.

As far as pricing is concerned, we found M4VGear DRM Media Converter is a bit expensive at $44.95. But if we consider the amount of money a user will save in the long run, not having to re-download movies and television shows, the money spent will be well worth it.

The thing which doesn’t go in favor of M4VGear DRM Media Converter is that it does not support other DRM-protected videos such as Amazon Instant Video or videos from BBC Player etc. It also does not support iTunes audios and audiobooks.

Bottom Line

M4VGear has all the features what it requires to be crowned as one of the best DRM removal tools. With 20X conversion speed, which is much faster than other similar tools and at $44.95, which has been discounted from $49.95, M4VGear DRM Media Converter does just about everything we had hoped for. So, we would suggest you to give M4VGear a try for a quick and a hassle-free iTunes DRM removal experience.
