Im trying to edit a video purchased through itunes store and have hit a brick wall. It won't import directly, quicktime won't record it and neither will SNAPZ Pro. Does anyone know how to break through this problem?

What format is it? If you need to convert it to be avid friendly try mpegstreamclip . It's free and works on mac and windows

It's a DRM issue. Same thing used to happen with songs purchased through iTunes - importing via QuickTime saw the DRM and refused to process - same thing for video I suspect.

Ah, the old DRM! I thought I read somewhere that apple had stopped using DRM on itunes? I don't tend to buy anything from itunes but it's good to have a heads up if the need ever arises!

They stopped it on music, not video... that's a whole different negotiation with the studios. I don't see that going away any time soon.

A quick google search should give you results on how to defeat it, I've had to do it a few times with an item I've purchased. I believe Lifehacker had the article? I think...

Sadly I lost my battle with the DRM ... I ended up getting the episode in a torent. So much for doing the right thing.
