I am attempting to play .m4v files in Garuda Linux that I purchased in iTunes. Being a long time Mac User I purchased these movies on my older Mac. I cannot get mpv or any other video player to play these files. I assume this has to do with Apple DRM, but I was wondering if anyone may know of an available workaround to strip the DRM or just simply play the movies.

Thank you,


Unfortunately, stripping DRM in most countries is illegal.

I am sorry, but we can't permit posts that may violate many countries laws on the Garuda forum.

While I do not like DRM, we must keep the forum clear of threads advising on how to circumvent DRM.

My apologies.
