How can I convert movies and TV shows downloaded from iTunes from m4v to mp4?? Or can I even do that given they are copy protected?
Videos purchased from iTunes are usually in M4V format with DRM-protected, so that they can only be played on Apple products like iTunes, iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc. However, if you prefer to watch the movies on non-Apple players like Android tablets, smartphones, Zune, PSP, etc., you will need to use a DRM M4V converter to remove DRM from M4V on Mac.
