How to remove DRM from Amazon Instant Video?
"Has anyone been able to get VLC player to work with the crazy DRM on Amazon Instant Video .WMV files? (Or does anyone know how to remove the DRM from Amazon in some other way?)"
What is Amazon Instant Video?
Amazon Instant Video (formerly Amazon Video On Demand) is an Internet video on demand service, only available in the United States, offered by Amazon.com which offers television shows and films for rental and purchase. Though Amazon has been selling DRM-free MP3 for quite a time, there is still DRM protection to Amazon Instant Video files. The addition of DRM to Amazon content is a huge disappointment because the DRM prevents users from watching the content! The optional Amazon Unbox player lets users download higher-quality copies of videos; however, the content can be only viewed using the Amazon Unbox Video Player, Windows Media Player, a Windows Media Center Extender such as an Xbox 360, a PlaysForSure portable device.
