What are the importances for you to choose a iTunes DRM Video Converter on Mac?

A: Converting Theory

One of the solution to playing iTunes video on non-Apple devices is to record the screen when playing back the movie on iTunes. The Camtasia is reported as the best video recording software on Mac platform. The other three tools claim they can directly remove DRM and output non-protected videos.

According to personal experience, the video and audio quality of output videos can be poor after recording the screen. Besides, you can’t do any other things when the program is recording the screen. So, compared to others, the Camtasia for Mac doesn’t seem to be the first chioce for you to get unprotected movies.

B: Supported Video Resources

As you want to get unprotected videos from iTunes, certainly you wish all of your purchased movie, TV shows and other videos from iTunes U can be successfully converted. All of above four tools support iTunes purchased movies, TV shows and other DRM M4V videos downloaded from iTunes.

However, there are still some differences. Pavtube ChewTune for Mac can also convert Blu-ray/DVD digital copy M4V videos. Both of NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus for Mac and M4VGear for Mac also support iTunes rental movies for converting.

C: System Requirements

As you need to use the program for long time, you hope that these four programs can be compatible with the latest Mac OS. Unfortunately, Pavtube ChewTune for Mac only supports Mac OS X under 10.7 and iTunes should stay under 10.5 version. That is unacceptable for most of Mac users who are running on Mac 10.8 and 10.9.

Let’s take a look at NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus for Mac. It supports Mac OS X from 10.6 to the latest 10.9 while M4VGear for Mac ranges from 10.7 to 10.9. What's more, both of them support the latest version of iTunes.

M4VGear Studio claims that removing DRM from iTunes videos can be 20X faster than other programs. NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus for Mac is faster than Pavtube ChewTune for Mac.
