Requiem 4.2?

Anyone out there have any idea if the Fairplay DRM removal tool Requiem will be updated to 4.2 in the near future? As of now Requiem 4.1 does not work with 1080p video bought in the iTunes 11 store. Nor can I get it to work with iTunes 10.7 1080p content under OS X 10.8.

Aww man I hope he didn't retire

I think the iTunes 1080p content is great and very convenient but I would prefer downloading to my computer and wirelessly streaming to my Samsung TV like all my mkv files so I can use just my TV remote instead of TV remote + AppleTV remote. And I'm really not a fan of those complicated multi programmable remotes.

Yep, unfortunatly Brahms, the author, isn't updating the project anymore. Weather anyone takes over the project is anyones guess.

I have no problems using 4.1 with iTunes 10.7 all I can suggest is if you had iTunes 11 installed and then downgraded to 10.7 you may need to delete the keystores and reauthorize the content in iTunes 10.7, otherwise you'll still be using the iTunes 11 keystores. You can do this by removing the 'SC Info' folder found the /Users/Shared

Requiem also has a Tor website with it's own forum at http://tag3ulp55xczs3pn.onion/ you'll need a Tor client to access it.

I deleted the keystores and completely deleted all my content and redownloaded some 1080p files with iTunes 1080p and authorized my computer.

I now get the following as attached.

I don't know if the website is just down but I can't get to the Requiem forums any more. even through Tor.

Make sure your version of java is upto date. Also how are you using Requiem, are you just running it and letting it decrypt everything in your library? You may have more luck by dragging and droping files directly onto the Requiem program (Windows version, don't know if this is possible with the Mac version).

I tried the latest native Java in OS X 10.8 and Requiem didn't work. So now I'm running the latest Java from the Java website and still no go. I've tried both drag and drop and automatic.

I'm trying to play the 1080p version of 'The Mind of a Chef' from the iTunes store. Since it's a new series maybe iTunes is using a new encryption algorithm.

I went through this on my current gen Mac Pro (sadly 2010). I state this as Requiem does not work with newer hardware. I tried on my 2012 MacBook Air and Mac Mini which didn't work. After days of research I learned current hardware is somehow encrypting or blocking requiem from stripping DRM. Since my Mac Pro's hardware is older, I removed iTunes 11.x completely from that system (running 10.8.3 beta at the time). Aside from keystores and the lot, there is a plethora of files left behind in ~/Library/ and /Library/ folders.

I spent some time searching for anything iTunes related and removed it. Of course, make sure you back up all the info first. If "Time Machine" is backing up your data, great, you also might want to copy them to a USB drive just to be sure. OS X Finder is not set to search for system files by default, and there are quite a few.

In case you don't know, here's how to fine tune Finder searches:

1. Open a Finder window and type in iTunes in the window's Spotlight.

2. Next to the "Save" button just below it, click on the "+" sign. This will bring up the ability to search for the file(s) based on chosen parameters (i.e. kind, size, etc.). There are a ton of search fields and most aren't set on the default list.

3. Select the "Kind" option and in the drop down window select "Other". (You'll notice in mine I already have "System Files" as an option, this isn't set until you follow these steps)

4. Once "Other" is chosen, you will see a long list of search parameters to choose from. Select as many as you want but make certain you select "System Files".

5. Returning to the "Kind" drop-down menu, select "System Files". This will include system files in your search.

6. Finally, select "are included", and your search results should change based on the set search parameters.

This will allow you to see iTunes files located in your /Library/ and /System/~folders. Delete anything relating to iTunes. You may want to logout or reboot. Install iTunes 10.7 and all should be working.

Hope this helps! I was able to strip all my 1080P, 720P, etc iTunes movies. My music and books are already DRM free. Good luck!

thank you bendifferent for the great explanation. Interesting find about the new hardware breaking Requiems functionality. Since I'm running a new Retina MacBook Pro it looks like I'm out of luck.

That is most likely the issue. I have not tried/researched it using Windows on new Mac hardware. Perhaps it's the combination of OS X and new Mac hardware? I don't fully know. If you have access to another system, I would try that route instead of the headache involved ('course you probably would have if you had another system ).

Sorry man, hope I was somewhat helpful!

At what point are you saying new hardware breaks this? I have a 2011 Late 2011 MBP which works fine.

There is another option - a VM. I have VMWare set up running Windows XP with iTunes 10.7. From there I can drag a DRM movie in from the Shared Library (which is located on the same computer) - then run Requiem in the Windows VM - and then in iTunes 11 in OS X I delete the original and drag the newly converted one back in from the shared library on the VM.

Only thing this hasn't worked for is HD content that has HDCP restriction; Windows XP doesn't support HDCP at all so those can't convert. I only had one movie that this affected so I haven't been motivated enough to create a new Windows 7 VM to see if I can work around that issue.

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?

4.1 Working on latest Mac hardware

I have brand new Apple hardware and got it working by running a Lion (10.7) VM in Parallels. I have found that anything newer than Lion doesn't work and iTunes 11 doesn't work but other than that, it works great. I buy and download 1080p TV Shows daily.

It is a Java error (shiver). Plus, you don't need Requiem to convert 1080p video. I use M4V Converter Plus, it handles all videos in all resolutions from the iTunes Store. Very convenient, then I can play the videos on my Nook.

Plus they also make an audiobook converter, don't buy it. M4V Converter Plus will also convert DRM audio files.

That program encodes the video though which lowers quality. Requiem removes DRM but keeps the file in tact.

Complicated???

I use a logitech Harmony. When I want to watch Apple TV, I push 1 button. When I want to switch to watching TV, I push 1 button. The remote takes care of all the rest.

Even my 4 year old can use it, its so simple.

I created an account to disagree with you, but I have uses requiem with the latest Macmini and had no truble doing it.
