Nevertheless, here in this review, we’ll compare those three top-rated iTunes DRM video converters from different aspects, including conversion method, output quality, conversion time, speed, etc. in order to help you pick up the best iTunes M4V converter when removing DRM from iTunes videos.

TunesKit DRM Media Converter, NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus and Aimersoft DRM Media Converter are all contributed to convert the protected iTunes M4V videos to common unprotected file formats. When it comes to the effectiveness of these three tools, whose performance is the best? Just read on.

TunesKit VS NoteBurner VS Aimersoft: Converision Method


Aimersoft DRM Media Converter could be listed on the top priorities to bypass DRM from numerous types of copy-protected videos. But it is worth mentioning that Aimersoft DRM Media Cinverter can’t really remove the DRM protection and it gets the unprotected audios/videos by recording the original file. It is good news that TunesKit DRM Media Converter and NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus could convert DRM on iTunes movies and TV shows purchased and rented from iTunes store to DRM-free files.

TunesKit VS NoteBurner VS Aimersoft: Conversion Quality


The quality of conversion decides the comfort degree of enjoying videos. Here is where the difference between these three trial converters and the original file would be very apparent.



From these pictures, we can understand that the quality of TunesKit DRM Media Converter and NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus is the same as the original file, while we might be tiresome during the watching period by using the Aimersoft DRM Media Converter.

TunesKit VS NoteBurner VS Aimersoft: Conversion Process


When starting TunesKit DRM Media Converter and NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus, the iTunes will be launched by itself, which leads us to the files that we want to convert as quickly as possible by adding the files, dragging the files into the area. Besides, it is also supported to search the files into the area by NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus, whose ‘Convert’ button is not apparent. If it was your first time to use this app, you would get trouble in it. With the Aimersoft DRM Media Converter, the iTunes won’t show up until I click the button to convert videos. As a result, we must click the key words again and again to get the files that we need, which is very troublesome.

TunesKit VS NoteBurner VS Aimersoft: Conversion Time


When it comes to conversion time, TunesKit DRM Media Converter must be the solid choice. The reason is that I measured the processing time for all apps using the same roughly one-minute iTunes source movie, TunesKit DRM Media Converter just spends around 3 seconds finishing the task, NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus needs around half a minute but the Aimersoft DRM Media Converter needs more time, which is up to at least 4 minutes. Therefore, TunesKit DRM Media Converter is the fastest converter than the other two.

Conclusion: Which is the Best iTunes DRM M4V Converter?


From what have mentioned above, I could conclude that TunesKit DRM Media Converter, NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus and Aimersoft DRM Media Converter striping the restriction of DRM from iTunes movies and TV shows purchased and rental all aim to make our digital life easier and easier. But as far as I am concerned, TunesKit DRM Media Convertert and NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus are more convenient than Aimersoft DRM Media Converter as a whole. Nevertheless, which to choose between TunesKit DRM Media Converter and NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus depends on the following aspects.

If you have numerous iTunes movies in your library or you know the title of the movie you need to convert, NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus is a good choice because of the function of searching files. But according to the speed of converting videos with lossless quality, TunesKit DRM Media Converter may be the best choice. Hope this post can help you and now do you have the best iTunes M4V Converter to choose in your mind?

How to Make TunsKit Work Well under iTunes 12.6?



TunesKit yesterday released the newest version of M4V Converter for Mac, Audiobook Converter for Mac, Apple music Converter for Mac. Prior to the TunesKit Mac version update, TunesKit windows version has updated last week and can be completely compatible with iTunes. So, it takes Mac users more patience and time waiting for the updating.

Actually this updating of TunesKit Mac version is not a final solution, Mac users still need to adjust some settings firstly to make TunesKit Mac version return back to normal again under iTunes 12.6. TunksKit R&D team is still speeding up their efforts to reach a permanent solution with iTunes 12.6 without needing their users to partially disable SIP in Mac.

Before the new updating of TunesKit Mac version, it is essential for Mac users to know how to get your TunesKit working again with iTunes 12.6. Actually, you can select the suitable solution depending on your case, alterative solutions are as below:

Solutions: Make your Tuneskit Work again under iTunes 12.6

Solution 1: Disable System Integrity Protection on Mac

Ever since Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan was launched, Apple has introduced System Integrity Protection, known as SIP. TunesKit won't work properly with SIP enabled on the Mac where iTunes 12.6 installed. This method just shows you how to configure your machine by partially disabling the SIP setting so that you can run TunesKit successfully with iTunes 12.6 on your Mac.

Step 1. Boot into Recovery OS


Simply restart your Mac machine. Hold COMMAND + R until the Apple logo appears. Then select Terminal from the Utilities menu.

Step 2. Partially Disable SIP



In the popup window it opens, please type csrutil enable --without debug and press Return. Then the part of SIP that TunesKit runs will be turned off.
Step 3. Restart Mac and Run TunesKit

Now input reboot and press Return to restart your Mac. Once restarted, you can install TunesKit again on your machine so that you can use it to convert iTunes movies, or Apple Music, or audiobooks as before without any problem.

Note: Please be well noted that this only disables the part of the SIP function that TunesKit needs to run on your Mac, so your machine is still being protected. You can enter csrutil status and press Return in Terminal to check the SIP status and you'll find it's still enabled, see below:



But if you are still considering about the security issue, you can also enable the System Integrity Protection again once you complete the conversion with TunesKit by following the guide below.

Tips: How to Enable SIP Again?

To enable the System Integrity Protection again, you can simply quite TunesKit, then boot into the Recovery OS as mentioned in the first step. In the pop-up window, type csrutil clear and press Return. Then type reboot and press Return to restart your machine.

Solution 2: Downgrade iTunes 12.6 to iTunes 12.5 or Lower

If you don't want to turn off the SIP setting on your Mac, then the other option to make TunesKit work again on your Mac is downgrading your iTunes 12.6 to 12.5. But the problem is, unlike Windows, iTunes comes preinstalled as part of OS X, and is considered "required" software by operating system. So you can't simply drag the iTunes app to Trash for uninstallation. Please don't worry. You can simply follow these steps to learn how to completely uninstall iTunes 12.6 and reinstall iTunes 12.5.

Step 1. Uninstall iTunes 12.6



Firstly navigate to the Applications folder and find the iTunes app file (/Applications/iTunes.app). Right-click (or Control-click) on iTunes and select Get Info. Locate and click on the padlock icon on the bottom right side of the window and enter your admin password.

Expand the Sharing & Permissions section of the window if it's not already visible and change the privileges for "everyone" to Read & Write. Then close the Get Info window and try again to drag the iTunes application file to the Trash.

Tips: This won't affect your iTunes library file or your actual iTunes media, both of which are stored outside of the application file we deleted. This means that if you later reinstall iTunes, you can point it to your old iTunes library and pick up right where you left off.

Step 2. Install iTunes 12.5

You can download the previous iTunes 12.5 in some software download sites, such as iPhonefirmware.com. Then install it on your Mac. Please note that the older version of iTunes may not recognize your iTunes library in iTunes 12.6. You need to reload the iTunes library later.

Step 3. Reload iTunes library



Go to your home directory > Music > iTunes and find the file named iTunes Library.itl. You can rename it or just delete it. Then go to the folder of Previous iTunes Libraries in the same directory, and find the most recent iTunes Library.itl and copy the specific file to the iTunes folder by removing the date info from the file name.

Step 4. Turn off iTunes automatic upgrade

Relaunch iTunes, go to menu bar and choose iTunes > Preferences > Advanced. Disable the Check for new software updates automatically option and then click OK to save the setting.

That's it. Then you can use TunesKit again on your Mac as smoothly as before.
