Doubts about seasonal purchases in iTunes

Recommended Posts

To get an iTunes file on the PC, I need to convert it?

Example: I buy a season of some series, will it go direct to the files on my PC? Or is it inside iTunes for me to watch? And if I want the season of some series on Mkv do I need to convert it from iTunes? Or iTunes already give me that format?

Can anyone explain how the TV Season purchasing process works in iTunes?

My itunes folder is in the music folder on my PC that's where itunes files will go. You shouldn't need to convert the files and you actually can't until you remove the drm from each file. But you'll only be able to watch these videos on the itunes software or quicktime video player, or an apple device.

I understood your explanation, but how and the process of these WEB-DLS that are in mkv? The files are from iTunes right? And also the music files already come in the m4a format? And can I play them on other devices?

There's software that removes DRM but they are pricey. Because of the DRM you can only play it on apple devices but you shouldn't have a problem watching them on a PC. I've only downloaded one series from iTunes and that was way back in 2011. I try to avoid iTunes because of all their restrictions. If you don't mind me asking what series are you wanting to get?

I understood everything now, thanks for the explanation! I intended to get some old series etc, but from what you explained to me I think I'm going to analyze iTunes more, to see if I'll let it go, if I leave, I'll try another platform.

For a long time, Requiem was commonly used, which is open source, but the developer abandoned it after version 4.1, which only supports up to iTunes 10.7. It continued to work for a long time as long as you downgraded to iTunes 10.7, but Apple recently disabled 1080p download and playback in iTunes versions older than 11.1, so now Requiem is only able to remove DRM from 720p at most.

 

Thereis a paid app called TunesKit which works with iTunes 12 and 1080p, you can find a cracked version in this thread. Per my explanation there, it losslessly removes DRM from the video and AC3 5.1 audio, however, AAC 2.0 audio is further transcoded to the same lossy AAC format, which means there is some loss in quality, though it's generally not audible. At least for now, Requiem can still be used to extract the AAC audio losslessly, which is mainly a concern if the movie/show doesn't have AC3 audio.

      This is the first time I've ever posted something on my mind and sharing it with the rest of the community. Anyways, I learned that Amazon delivers way more episodes of your favorite shows that seem somewhat exclusive even for iTunes to follow, such as Bunnicula from Boomerang. Although the new episodes have already aired either on television or online VOD/streaming. In fact, I've compared two different sites:
       
      iTunes vs. Amazon
       
      Also, it is my understand that Amazon offers videos in their correct aspect ratios while iTunes sometimes doesn't. Then I compared how many MB both Amazon and iTunes WEB-DLs hold. And although Amazon contains less MB than iTunes, AMZN WEB-DLs still retain their high video and audio quality. You could say that AMZN WEB-DLs gives users more space in their hard drives (internal and external) than iT WEB-DLs do. In conclusion, I trust and like Amazon way more than iTunes.

      I'm looking for a free DRM remover that will keep closed captions after removing the DRM. I know very little about this, since I've never done anything with DRM before. I'm buying something from iTunes tomorrow, and would like to know the best way to do this while keeping closed captions. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
