At first sight, plugins (software components that add features to existing applications – most typically browsers) offer a superior way of delivering Digital Rights Management (DRM) functionality into PDF documents on an end user device (desktop, laptop, tablet and so on). Download Drum Pro Drums Percussion “Drum Pro comes with 20 drum kits and the sounds of 9 vintage rhythms boxes (including TR-808 and TR-909). Each element is mapped to a virtual pad, controlled externally from your MIDI keyboard or drum pad, and has its separate volume and pan settings. The easiest way to strip DRM from Kindle books (and Barnes and Noble, Adobe Digital Content, etc) is with the free ebook software Calibre, DRM removal plugins, and a copy of the Kindle desktop.

Multimedia streaming player by IdeaNova made for displaying inflight content.
The majority of players on the market are limited to playback only in web browsers using the supported DRM Content Decryption Module (CDM). In addition, many of these players require Flash based browser plugins, which require connectivity for installation and updates. The process for installing these plugins can be very confusing and oftentimes leaves passengers without the ability to watch any content at all during their flight.
INPLAY INSTANT utilizes a simple user-friendly installation process that does not require connectivity or installation of plugins giving passengers an uninterrupted multimedia streaming experience. The multimedia player features support for adaptive streaming, adaptive download, in-flight chat, multi-language subtitles and audio, data analysis tools and ad integration with DRM content.
With the new player operators can incrementally rollout DRM platforms on their own schedules, without impacting a consumer’s ability to watch content in their platform of choice. Since the player is DRM agnostic, customers can choose which platform to support. In a sense, this gives operators the ability to extend the life of existing legacy solutions, like Widevine Classic or Marlin DRM, without hassling with periodic Flash updates. “We believe this will have a huge impact as it gives operators more time to rollout new technology while providing entertainment to customers on their existing platforms,” said Juraj Siska, CTO of IdeaNova Technologies.
In addition, the new player fully supports the new Dash DRM platforms. If, for example, an airline decides to initially rollout the Widevine Modular platform only, the INPLAY INSTANT users using Internet Explorer, Edge and Safari would be able to enjoy watching the same DRM content in these browsers that would be otherwise unsupported.
“The flexibility of the INPLAY INSTANT technology gives us freedom to combine features and functionality from each DRM vendor, while maintaining the web look and feel that is so desired by our customers. For example, we can now deliver web playback of offline content that the customer downloaded while in connected mode,” said Siska.
This player fills a gap in today’s common encryption technology (CENC) environment, which is still maturing. As DRM vendors are consolidating on the encryption algorithms and making their CDMs more robust and secure, INPLAY INSTANT provides operators with the freedom of falling back on a platform that is guaranteed to work every time a user wants to play DRM content.

DRM: What it is and why you should care about it.
DRM is used by publishers to restrict what you can do with your ebooks. DRM controls which devices you can use to read your ebook, and stops you converting your ebooks from one format to another.
DRM makes buying and using ebooks harder. When you first start using ebooks, you might not notice the restrictions very much. But the restrictions are there.
There are several different DRM schemes. Ebooks with one DRM scheme can’t be read on a device that uses a different DRM scheme. Some DRM schemes limit ebooks to one device only, so if you want to read that ebook on a different device, it’s necessary to download the ebook again. Others require new devices to be authorised by a central server on the Internet.
When you want to use a different ebook reader, or if the supplier stops supporting the ebooks you’ve bought, you may lose access to your DRMed ebooks. This has already happened to many people, with ebooks and other digital media.
So to be able to read your ebooks on all the devices you have now, and to be sure that you will still be able to read your ebooks in the future, you will want to remove the DRM.
Please only use this application for gaining full access to your own ebooks for archiving/converson/convenience. De-drmed ebooks should not be uploaded to open servers, torrents, or other methods of mass distribution. No help will be given to people doing such things. Authors, retailers and publishers all need to make a living, so that they can continue to produce books for us to read. Don’t be a parasite.
Current Ebook Formats and DRM schemes
There are three main current eBook formats.
United Drm Plugin Download Mac High Sierra
- ePub Defined by the IDPF and used by many ebook vendors.
- PDF Created by Adobe, and in some forms an international standard. Less popular on ebook readers than on computer screen. PDF is hard to convert into other ebook formats.
- Kindle Owned by Amazon, the Kindle ebook format is actually four different file formats.
- Mobipocket One of the oldest ebook formats, readily converted into other file formats.
- Topaz Created by Amazon, conversion to other formats relies on the quality of the OCR text in the format. The quality of conversions are therefore variable.
- Print Replica This is actually a PDF file wrapped in Amazon’s own packaging.
- KF8 Amazon’s newest ebook format, with rich formating capabilities similar to ePub, and readily converted to ePub.
There are several ebook DRM schemes
- For ePub there are separate DRM schemes from Apple, Adobe and Barnes & Noble.
- For PDF there are several different DRM schemes, several from Adobe, one from the Italian firm, ScuolaBook, and one from Barnes & Noble (NOOK Study).
- For Kindle, DRM is provided by Amazon.
- There are other schemes not covered by the tools in this blog.
Ways to Remove DRM
The tools in the archive maintained on this blog can remove all the kinds of DRM described above from ebooks, except for some of the older Adobe PDF DRM schemes, the ePub DRM scheme by Apple, and the NOOK Study PDF DRM scheme by Barnes & Noble. To remove DRM from ebooks sold by Apple, a separately maintained tool is required, described in my post Apple and ebooks: iBookstore DRM and how to remove it. There is currently no tools that removes DRM from Barnes & Noble NOOK Study ebooks. There are commercially available tools for the older Adobe PDF DRM schemes.

The simplest way for most people (especially Windows users) to remove the other kinds of DRM from their ebooks is to use the calibre plugin, as described in my post DeDRM plugin for Calibre: the simplest option for removing DRM from most ebooks.
Mac OS X 10.4 and later users who don’t want to use calibre can use the DeDRM AppleScript application, as described in my post, DeDRM AppleScript for Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
Windows users who don’t want to use calibre can use the DeDRM_App Python application, as described in my post, DeDRM Application for Windows XP and above.
Linux users should use the DeDRM plugin for calibre, or can extract the individual tools if they wish. Specific Linux instructions are included in the ReadMe that accompanies the DeDRM plugin.
A note about Amazon ebook formats
Amazon’s Kindle devices and software use a variety of ebook formats, and books bought from Amazon come in a variety of ebook formats. Amazon tries hard to hide this complexity from their customers, and does this by only sending each device ebook formats that it can understand.
Once the DRM is removed from an Amazon ebook, it becomes important to know the ebook’s format, so that it is not sent to devices that can not read its format.
For this reason, the tools will usually change the ebook file name extension. .mobi is used for Mobipocket format ebooks (all Kindle devices can read these). .azw3 is used for KF8 format ebooks. Not all Kindle devices can read these. Currently, Kindle 1, Kindle 2, Kindle 3 with firmware less than 3.4 and Kindle for iOS cannot read KF8 format ebooks, and ebooks in that format will need to be converted to Mobipocket format before transferring to such devices.
Amazon’s Topaz format cannot be read by any other devices, and is converted during decryption to a .htmlz archive that calibre can convert to other formats.
Obsolete Ebook Formats and DRM schemes
