How can I play a password-protected video?

Asked by davidhimself (47 points ) July 20th, 2007

I downloaded a password-protected video and its password from a website to my laptop, but now I can't watch the video in my desktop computer because the password can only work on the computer the file was first played in (in this case, my laptop). Is there a way to rip the video or somehow capture the video onto a new file so that it can be played in my desktop computer?
Oh, it can only be played with the WMP, if I try to play it with another player (even on my laptop) I get indistinct video.

Welcome to the wonderful world of DRM.

If you still have the video on your laptop you could record it with software like Camtasia. This will only work well if you have a decent enough laptop, meaning fast enough to record the screen without causing any lag. Other than that I don't know how you could do it any other way.
