just wanted to add my 2 cents...

there are two programs for windows that require the
wma licenses, but will strip drm from your file

unfuck and freeme

the source code for freeme is on the net. jon johanson
has it on his site, but i lost the addy.

the only problem with playing drm stuff is you need
the licenses... and licenses are only provided for
windows and mac. so it shouldnt be too hard to be
able to code playing drm if you have the license, like
what decss-jon or the freeme/unfuck people did.

cracking the wma/wmv encryption might be a bit harder tho...
just like how no one can play the old DVD type DIVX cds...

what freeme did was perfect for microsoft trying to get people
to upgrade to windows media 8/9 drm, by unhooking wmv7 files
microsoft can say that only wmv9 files are safe from freeme now.
