I must be overlooking something. Can anyone help me to convert the DRM-protected iTunes M4V videos to MP4 format so that I can watch them on my Android device freely?
Movie lovers are often frustrated when purchasing or renting movies from iTunes Store, because they can't take those videos with them on their non-Apple portable video player, like Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note, Nokia Lumia, etc as they like.
