    I am trying to convert a DRM video and it keeps telling me there is no virtual sound driver installed.

    What is a virtual sound driver and does Windows 10 have it? If it does not, where can I download a free one?

    I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

    It is a m4v DRM video from iTunes. I bought it and downloaded it, but now I can't change to MKV. I need it changed so I can watch on any one of my video programs (such as VLC).
    I have, tried iSoft, Winx, Handbrake, and others. Some say they can't because it is a file they don't recognize and some say they need a Virtual Sound Driver.

    Won't it play in the QuickTime Player?

    You can also try the free Leawoo Blu-ray Player.
