    Steps taken to resolve, but unsuccessful?:
    I tried Leawo Video Converter, many video decryption tool, tired many methods.
    Operating System:
    Windows 7
    OS Architecture:
    I have purchased set of educational videos files. With those videos, seller gave me a special video player with them.These video files are encrypted and only opens in that specialized video player developed by seller. Means extension of those videos is only compatible with that speciallsed video player and not with VLC or other video palyers
    Now problem is that video player only works on a single pc and not on other pc. I have to run these video file on my laptop but that application is not running on my laptop or any other pc.

    More frustrating thing is, no any single screen capture software works with this video player. When I open that video player and try to open screen capture software, then it is automatically get closed. Means screen capture software cant work with this video player

    Now how to extract those video files? I tired all the methods an software mentioned in google search result but all failed.

    Hello. What you're about to do is piracy. My contribution is for educational purposes only.
    You could use this device to capture the video signal from your graphics card and record. This is not the cheapest option, but perhaps the best. That would be such a device: Live Gamer Portable (LGP) C875 | AVerMedia

    This is how it works: You plug the HDMI cable into the device so that there is a connection between your graphics card and the capture device. Then plug a second HDMI cable from the device into your monitor so that you can see something on the monitor during recording. Everything else is self-explanatory.

    (You could try this but it'll not work I think: Start the video in a VM and try to record it on your PC. This will probably not work, because the video player has saved your HWID (Hardware ID) to protect the rights of the creator.)

    Maybe connect to host PC w/video player via TeamViewer and run screen recording from client PC? Or install player in a VM and screen record from VM host? Or run video player in Sandboxie and use local screen recorder (outside of SB). Or Chromecast to external recorder. IDK. Only to allow backup of your purchased wares....
