Most new users don't bother reading our rules. Here's the one that is ignored almost immediately upon signup: DO NOT ASK FOR FANEDIT LINKS PUBLICLY. First, read the FAQ. Seriously. What you want is there. You can also send a message to the editor. If that doesn't work THEN post in the Trade & Request forum. Anywhere else and it will be deleted and an infraction will be issued.
If this is your first time here please read our FAQ and Rules pages. They have some useful information that will get us all off on the right foot, especially our Own the Source rule. If you do not understand any of these rules send a private message to one of our staff for further details.
From what I can see on other threads (albeit a few years old) iTunes is the only option with regard to the above? Please confirm when you have the time and provide a (simple) step-by-step guide on how to obtain the files for editing.
I’d be grateful if someone could also explain how to obtain files for editing from a streaming platform, in my case Disney+.
iTunes requires a dmr removal tool that will cost somewhere between $45-75. You'd also need to downgrade your iTunes to the last compatible version as the latest dmr encryptions were never cracked on any tools. Those iTunes files will be limited to 5-6mbps bitrates. That's about 1/5th the bitrate of a Blu ray. Unless you're buying digital codes for super cheap, it's not really cost efficient nor is it the highest quality.
Amazon has become an option with some of the newer streaming tools. Those cost anywhere from $80-$300 depending on the number of services you are able to access. Amazon files are generally around 12mbps vbr files. Again, the decryption tools are super expensive and the video fields are still sub Blu ray quality. Those same decryption tools can work for steaming sites, but Disney+ and some others can only be downloaded at 720p.
If you buy one I'd be willing to help with a step by step, but I'd honestly recommend buying a good used external BD drive. The cost will be the same or way less than the decryption tools and MakeMKV is free to decrypt the Blu ray disc.
