You're probably not going to get much help on this forum to help remove DRM from content, unfortunately.

DRM (known as Digital Restrictions Management or Digital Rights Management) describes a range of measures to restrict the ability to copy files.
DRM files are typically protected by storing some kind of key on your computer, and requiring that programs use this key to use the file. Only closed source programs trusted by the maker of the file can access this key: often this includes Windows Media Player or iTunes.
VLC, like all open source media players, cannot play protected files.
Please note that circumventing DRM restrictions may be illegal where you live (for example, see the DMCA).
So you'll have a long search for anything legal, I'm afraid.

Alternatively, playback using VLC or similar, running QT screen capture, with the audio out fed back in to the "in",
( best to feed the "in" to an audio package and mute the output to prevent FB ).
Its not the most elegant solution but once you repatriate the video and audio, its perfectly acceptable.
