    Default Requiem 4.1 - Remove iTunes DRM (FairPlay) from music, video and books

    Requiem is a program that removes Apple's DRM (called FairPlay) from songs, videos, and books purchased on iTunes, This allows content purchased on iTunes to be played on non-Apple-approved devices, like a SlimServer or Linux box. The DRM removal is a lossless process, it is merely decrypting the file, not decoding and re-encoding it.

    Requiem must be run on a computer that is currently authorized to play the DRM'd music.

    Download:

    Download Requiem 4.1 for Windows
    Download Requiem 4.1 for OSX
    Download Requiem 4.1 Source Code

    How to use:

    Double-click on the Requiem application and watch it work!
    It will automatically find DRMed files in your iTunes library and remove the DRM from them.

    The original DRMed files will be moved to the trash. Make sure you verify that the songs and videos still work before emptying the trash.

    Windows users will need to install Java.

    You can also drag & drop files or directories (which will be searched recursively) onto the Requiem application or the Requiem window.

    Starting Requiem with the shift key down will disable scanning of the iTunes library. You can use this feature to start requiem with a blank window into which you can drag & drop files to be processed.

    How it works:

    Requiem decrypts the audio and video data in your file exactly like iTunes does:

    1. Requiem authenticates with the DRM library using the secret credentials used by iTunes.

    2. Requiem uses the decrypt routines in the DRM library to decrypt all of the audio and video data.


    Changes:

    There is no longer a key cache.

    Warning:

    This program is not intended to promote piracy. I just wanted to play my iTunes songs on a SlimServer! As such, the output file is only minimally modified to remove the DRM. It still has lots of information in it identifying you.


    Command Line:

    You can run Requiem a bunch of different ways from the command line (Mac examples):

    run it as usual:
    java -cp Requiem.app/Contents/Resources/Java/Requiem.jar Requiem

    deDRM a single file:
    java -cp Requiem.app/Contents/Resources/Java/Requiem.jar UnDrm <input file> <output file>

    print mp4 structure of a file:
    java -cp Requiem.app/Contents/Resources/Java/Requiem.jar Mp4 <file>

    print configuration info:
    java -cp Requiem.app/Contents/Resources/Java/Requiem.jar Config

    request more memory: add "-Xmx1024m" (or whatever number of megabytes you want)

    Official Website:

    Requiem has a Tor website: http://tag3ulp55xczs3pn.onion.
    To reach the site you will need to install Tor - http://www.torproject.org
    You can also use tor2web if you do not wish to install tor, however this will be quite slow as you are using a proxy, to do this just go to: http://tag3ulp55xczs3pn.tor2web.com.

    Can't wait to use this, but getting an error because I'm on iTunes 11.0.2. Any chance that Requiem will be updated to accommodate this version of the library?

    Requiem simply does not work, even when reverting to iTunes 10.7 which I did. Requiem doesn't find any DRM to remove from my books in my iTunes Library, so it's hopeless. And there ARE books protected by Apple's special DRM (they clearly appear as such when I "get info".
    Did anybody manage to make Requiem work?

    Itunes 10.7

    Apparently iTunes 10.5.3 and Requiem 3.3.5 installed in Windows XP virtual machine might still be able to remove the DRM from books, see here: https://tag3ulp55xczs3pn.tor2web.com...64f487dc5a00be

    Other than that i think your now out of luck in regards to EBooks by the looks of things.

    I'm on MacOS X 10.8.4, Java 7 Update 25 and iTunes 11.0.5. When I try to open Requiem in Finder, I get the message, "'Requiem' is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash." I tried dragging a protected movie onto it. I tried using "Open With." I tried using the "Open" item in the Finder contextual menu. Same error message every time.

    I then shifted my focus to Terminal where I got this msg: Error: Could not find or load main class UnDrm

    I just spent $20 buying StarTrek Into Darkness and enjoyed the movie very much. However, I need to write up a critical analysis of this movie using screenshots that I annotate with circles, arrows and text. Any Mac app that captures the screen (probably requires a call to the OS) is prevented from doing so by the OS. This is done by masking the screen area with a checkerboard pattern. All screen grabbers are affected this way.

    Taking screen shots for a purpose such as mine is clearly a fair use under US law (Fair Dealing in other countries) so this is not a plea for help in doing anything illegal.

    I understand that Brahms is no longer supporting Requiem so Apple has gotten the last word in on this matter. Perhaps someone can pick up where Brahms left off. Perhaps someone can figure out how to defeat Apple's method for preventing screen capture. Any pointers to other options will be greatly appreciated.

    I don't know if any public tools are out there like Requiem, however some people can certainly still remove DRM from iTunes content. All you need to do is Google and you will find 1080p iTunes rips of Star Trek Into Darkness and just about anything else on iTunes at the moment.

    I'm sure in time others tools will be available for people to use on their own purchases.

    Thumbs up

    Thank you very much! I finally bit the bullet and registered with iTunes to download a specific video [ETA: video serial] released only on iTunes. I downloaded it and was unable to play it on my computer no matter what tweaks I made to my system (I finally managed to get the audio to stop stuttering by putting the quality way down to the CD quality, but the video was still choppy and not in sync with the audio). My sister let me borrow her computer, and I was able to download the serial and watch on her computer just fine (both were running Win7, and my computer actually has higher specs than hers does). I went through the Apple forums, and although I found many threads with many Windows users having the same problem, I didn't find a solution that worked.

    All I wanted to do was to be able to watch the videos I'd paid for on my own computer whenever I wanted. Requiem worked perfectly. I uninstalled the most recent iTunes and installed 10.63, then I deleted the iTunes library and re-downloaded the videos. I fast-forwarded through each video in iTunes, since I read somewhere that the videos have to have been played in iTunes before Requiem could work its magic. Then I extracted Requiem, ran the program, it almost instantly found the videos, and within a relatively short time, I had videos that I could watch using VLC media player -- where they play perfectly.

    Requiem hasn't changed my mind about iTunes -- I'm still not going to purchase anything more from there -- but it has taken away the frustration and irritation I felt every time I remembered the videos I couldn't play! Thank you!

    I hate DRM. It doesn't deter pirates, but it does keep ordinary, honest consumers who just want to be able to watch, listen to, or read the content they've purchased without having compatibility issues.

    Thanks very much!

    I get this bug after playing my Itunes film ":we could not complete your itunes store request an unknown error occurred (-42408)) "

    Every time I run Requiem it gives me a message "failed call a458f619 - can iTunes play this file?" I've verified my Java is up to date, I downgraded iTunes to 10.7 as I've seen recommended in some of the forums (which resolved the initial error I was getting) but still no go. Any suggestions?

    Ok, so opening iTunes and starting to play each file then skipping to the next resolved the issue.

    Check you have set 'allow applications downloaded from anywhere' in the general tab of Security & Privacy of the System Preferences ( it defaults to Mac App store ).

    I need an older version - Requiem 1.8.8. I tried to get it from Requiem's Tor website, but it appears to no longer be online!

    I searched everywhere, only got fake files and torrents, or dead torrent links or password protected rapidshare files. Even tried eMule.

    Can anyone help?
