iTunes to AVI – How to Convert iTunes M4V Movie Purchases and Rentals to AVI

Could you please recommend some high quality DRM media converter which is able to bypass iTunes DRM license protection and convert iTunes M4V movies to AVI files so that I can play the iTunes videos on my player freely?
Although iTunes is one of the largest online video store which allows movie fans access to tons of popular movies through purchasing and renting, it restricts us from playing those movies on any other non-Apple portable devices. Because of Apple’s FairPlay policy, the movies and TV-shows downloaded from iTunes store are in DRM-protected .m4v format. That means your iTunes video purchases or rentals can only be played on the Apple-authorized computers or Apple mobile devices like iPhones or iPads. So if you want to play iTunes protected M4V movies on AVI compatible player, you need to crack the DRM lock from iTunes movie rentals or purchases and convert the DRM videos to unprotected AVI file format.

More about AVI
AVI, created by Microsoft, is one of the simplest video file formats available yet it boasts of a fairly high quality video resolution. It is one of the default file formats of the Windows Movie Player. As such, home movie makers can always opt to save their home videos in it. AVI is not a fully compressed format. As a matter of fact, it eats up a rather big file size, which is why it is easier to edit files in this format without losing the quality.
