Has anyone tried tunebite? to allow playing their Itunes purchases on other PMPs?

I own a lot of Itunes purchased videos but the ipod is basically a harddrive and not much of a video player with the tiny screen. I bought a device with a bigger screen but Itunes video purchases are DRM protected.
So I have 2 choices, stop buying stuff from Itunes or remove DRM so i can playback on other devices such as the Archos.

Someone recommended tunebite for removing DRM. Does anyone have experience with this

Thanks

No, but just looking at it, it appears to be a Windows program.

Also, be advised that removing the DRM is technically a violation of the contract you signed when you opened your iTunes account, therefore it is illegal.

Violating contract agreements isn't prima facie illegal, it simply exposes you to various civil claims and, of course, gives the other contracting party authority to void the contract (at least under most circumstances).

However, removing the DRM in order to copy the file into another file format would also be violating the copyright of the original. You'd be making an unauthorized copy. Copyright violations are subject to both civil and criminal penalties. So removing the DRM isn't a criminal act, but making a copy of the original file in the new format could be.

Well, Apple is going to lose my business. I am one of the rare few people who actually dont download stuff illegally. Apple is screwing their own paying legal customers. I wish I had known, I wouldnt have purchased stuff from them in the first place.

Caveat emptor...

Don't blame others for your lack of knowledge...

I hear you. I'm in the same boat. If I have to choose between iTunes music -- which I can't easily turn into MP3 disks to listen to on my car or home stereos -- or just buying CDs at the store (which I can easily rip) for a dollar or two more, I'm buying the CDs.
