Here's a thought - at some point the video has to leave the DRM jail and
become analog so we can see it - What about some kind of WINE hack running
Internet Explorer that "plays" the movie to a buffer and then converts it to
an MPG or similar, like how TuneBite for Windows does it? I can't program so
I have no idea how much real work that would be, but it's theoretically
possible, isn't it?
