Removing DRM from iTunes Movies or Videos with Requiem
Requiem is an open source DRM removing software that has been developed by Java. Even if the Requiem software has not been updated for several months, then also it has the ability to remove the DRM. But it is always a great choice that you update to the latest version of the Requiem software. In case you have too much hesitance with uninstalling your current iTunes version, then we strongly advise you to use an alternate device that already doesn’t have iTunes installed on it.
The steps mentioned below shows you how to uninstall the new version of the iTunes and install the older version. However, if you already have a second computer, with an older version of iTunes installed on it, then you should skip step one.
Step One: Uninstall the newer version of the iTunes
To uninstall the latest version of the iTunes, at first, you have to go to the Control Panel of your system. In the Control Panel, you should scroll below until you find the Programs and Features options. Once you have found it, then you need to click on Uninstall or Change a Program button.
Well, this is not enough. Until you uninstall all the applications that are related to your Apple device, you cannot install the older version of your iTunes applications.
Step Two: Install the older version of the iTunes
Once you have successfully uninstalled the latest version of iTunes, you have to go to the iTunes main page. There you can see an option named ‘Automatically update iTunes and other Apple Software.’ You need to click on that. After clicking the older version of your iTunes it gets automatically updated on your device. Wait for the completion of this procedure, and after its completion, restart your machine and make sure that you can play the iTunes.
Step Three: Install the Java Environment
Before running the Requiem software it is compulsory for you to make sure that the environment is right. As the Requiem needs the java runtime environment, so you should set this environment on your computer. And for this, you have to download a JRE button.
After completion of the installation process, you have to open it and install the JRE downloader on your machine. If you already have a JRE version, and it’s not the latest version then you should update it to the latest Java version.
Once you are sure that you are using the latest version, only after that, you should go to the next step.
Step Four: Installing Requiem
Before you are trying to install the Requiem software, you should close the iTunes completely. Take help from the iTunes Customer Service and after that install the Requiem software on your computer.
Step Five: Run the Requiem Software
After you install the Requiem software on your system, this software will automatically scan the iTunes device and remove DRM from iTunes movies
You should not close the Requiem software until the scanning process is completed. When scanning is successfully completed, then you should receive a message saying ‘ Successfully Removed DRM’. Now what you need to do is to navigate to the iTunes media folder. After that, check whether the DRM protected version has been replaced with the unprotected version or not. If the answer is yes, then your task is completed.
