"I bought a TV episode and I'm trying to put it onto my Samsung Galaxy phone. But it said that the format of this episode is not supported. I know my phone can play .avi formatted videos. Does anyone know how to convert iTunes video to AVI?"
If you have bought off movies from iTunes Store and tried to import them into Android phones, Windows devices, or other media players that are non-Apple products, you may find the import and playback will be refused. Feel confused? Actually, it is a normal phenomenon. Movies, TV shows and other videos purchased from iTunes Store are DRM protected, which well restricted the protected content. You can only play them on Apple products like iPhone, iPad, iPod with authorization. As for rental iTunes movies, the limitations are more rigid.
In this post, we will introduce how to convert M4V to AVI, a lossy format that is recognized by almost all Android and Windows-based devices and various media players.
To convert iTunes movies to AVI, you should find a video converter to strip the DRM protection and transfer M4V to AVI format. You can follow my suggestion to try Adoreshare M4V Converter Genius, a DRM ripper as well as a video converter which is capable of converting iTunes M4V to AVI for Windows and Mac users. Of course, DRM-free .m4v files are supported to transfer as well. Apart from AVI format, this software is also able to convert DRM protected content to MP4, MOV and extract to MP3 and other videos and audios formats playable on Android phones/tablets, Windows devices, Windows Media Player and others.
All steps to convert iTunes M4V to AVI have been finished by now. For more information, skip to the guide page of this software.
