Have some videos that I had purchased on Amazon that I'd like to download. The easiest way to get around DRM is just to play the video and record what is being played. I could do that, but not sure I want to set it all up.

Turns out that someone has done that as a cloud service. Basically for about $0.20 per video they'll spin up a cloud instance, play the video, turn it into an MPEG4 and give you a download link.

Seems to work pretty well.

@ted Easiest way to get around DRM is piracy. Even better, if you already paid for it and are just getting yourself a copy that's not damaged, it's not even piracy.
