    I've purchased a series of Tutorial DVDs from digitaltutors.com and now wanted to be able to see the movie tutorial files in my Archos player on my way to work. To do that I must encode the files on a different codec.

    The thing is the quicktime .mov files have some kind of protection that won't let me export or save the files.

    Is there any software that can unlock the .mov files? Or a workaround on this matter?

    Don't know if it still works, but there was a work-around where you would create an image the same size as the resolution of the video, then open the image in Quicktime, then drag the protected video file from the Finder onto the Quicktime window.
