Tunebite is a proprietary media converter sold by Audials which is specifically designed to legally by-pass DRM protection from songs, audiobooks, videos, and movies. It offers support for over 100 audio and video formats. It also includes an audio-stream and webvideo recorder.[1]

Design[edit]

Tunebite legally copies DRM protected media by taking "advantage of the analog loophole".[2] By re-recording DRM protected media Tunebite does not modify the original DRM media; thereby, Tunebite allows an authorized owner of DRM media to play the media (played via Tunebite itself or any installed media player) while Tunebite records to any of 100 different formats.

Usage[edit]

Songs can be converted through a simple drag and drop interface. Songs are then played and recorded to the output format specified. Because Tunebite uses the computer's soundcard, if the song cannot be played, the song cannot be converted.

As an alternative to drag and drop, songs can be burned to a virtual CD drive, which are caught by Tunebite and converted to the output format specified.
