I did a search and didn't really find anything that specifically addresses my question.
I recently downloaded a video file XXX.drm.wmv. Having paid full price for it, I foolishly thought that I would be able to 'edit' the file and create a DVDR using one of two DVD creator programs I have.
I soon discovered that I needed to obtain a license, which I did, to even play it on my Windows Media player. But that is all I could do. As I understand it, I can really only play it on the PC that 'has' the DRM license. I can't even play it on another video player other than the Windows Media player.
What I intended to do was 'open' the file with one of my DVD creators so I could encode it and burn it into a DVDR so I could play it on my standard DVD player and view it on my TV screen.
I found a couple of software packages that would convert (remove the DRM stuff) the file to an ordinary xxx.wvm file. Most notably Aimersoft Media Converter. I think this will solve my problem.
My question is - Is there a cheaper way to do this (that package costs $35)?
