Do You need to removed DRM?


Autechre Recommends FairUse4WM.
(FairUse4WM still works, but you need an old version of Windows Media Player installed - V9 works. If you're on Vista/7 or have WMP11 installed, try running XP in a VM(Virtual machine/Virtual box.) with WMP9.)


Grapple Guru Recommends Tunebite.
Alternate download link for Tunebite Cnet.


Buffalojet Recommends Aimersoft.
(It only re-encodes the video. So there is quality loss. )

Does anyone have any recommendations for programs that will re-encode DRM protected files?

There numerous ways to remove any copy protection scheme.  One that will always work is to play the video on a machine and point a camera at the screen.  Not the best quality but will never fail ever, so all copy protection is plain stupid.  Another is playing the video on one machine with a component video output(or video output converter box.) and capping the video on a separate machine with a video capture card.

Now what you want is easy and I would guess cheap?  Got VLC?  If you can play it on VLC you can use an output module to cap the video.  There used to be a driver for windows media player that also capped the video as it displayed on screen, not sure if there is one for the newest media players.  Both these methods are real time, IE if your ripping a half hour video it will take a half hour to rip.

I usually look to the shareware sites for apps to do things on da cheap, look for freeware/GPL.
http://win.softpedia.com/
http://download.cnet.com/windows/

Also just about anything can be found on a search engine.   

Tech forums can have lots of ideas for you on computer things.

Also Youtube has videos showing how to do things such as removing DRM. 

Remember some video will need DRM removed and then user coding or info removed.

Older versions of media player can be found at places like.
http://www.oldversion.com/
http://www.oldapps.com/

And of course there is the torrent sites with older versions of just about everything.
Lots of ISO images of installed systems on there too, for Virtual Machine software like.
https://www.virtualbox.org/

Also a quick web search turns up this DRM remover.

Need to extract pictures from a slideshow in flv format file?

Need to extract images from a slideshow in FLV format file?


Sar-Net noted You can use VLC to export the video frames.
Here is a tutorial I found that explains things a bit better than I could do.



Be forewarned when capping frames it can take a hell of a lot of hard drive space.   There are 60 images a second on a 30FPS interlaced video.    So if you want a minute of video as images, there will be 60(images per second.)x60(seconds in a minute.) which is 3600 images.   Even as a compressed image like a JPG it can take a lot of space.   If you want to edit the images you should output at the lowest compression which makes the image size much larger.   And then if you look at HD with its much larger frame size, it will make much larger file size images.    If you double the size from say 320x240 to 640x480 you quadruple the file size.

Anyway have fun with the image capping.

The video to image bit works on the older versions of VLC too, settings are similar, you have to check the "advanced box" rather than "all", the Linux version of VLC is much the same.

Need to record an online video to your PC?


Autechre notes YouTube, dailymotion, etc. vidoes can be saved to your PC using addins such as DownloadHelper for Firefox.
Addins for Firefox can be found here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/.


Hotheat notes There are many free programs that you can use.
This is a good place to start http://download.cnet.com.
Search for "download video" or "download manager."
