Best iTunes Video Converter | Convert iTunes Video Music File

Pick out the Best iTunes Video Converter to Convert iTunes M4V Videos

iTunes has pushed out iTunes Store for several years and embraced millions of videos like Hollywood blockbusters, hit TV shows and music videos, attributing to continuous update. With an iTunes account, we can purchase any favorite video for a movable enjoyment on iOS devices. iTunes absolutely drives us to download and watch movies/TV shows etc, comfortably while it prevents us from playing purchased contents on unauthorized devices or players. Why?

The particular format of iTunes videos is M4V[1], a video container format containing H.264 video and AAC/Dolby Digital audio similar to MP4. Apple builds FairPlay[2] DRM copy protection into M4V files for copyright reason resulting in lots of third-party video players and non-iOS devices are unqualified to support M4V. If we want to make purchased iTunes M4V videos to have a high compatibility, an iTunes video converter which can convert M4V to MP4 with removal of DRM is needed.

Need an Available iTunes Videos Converter? WinX MediaTrans Is the Best Choice!

We can google out numerous video converters which announce that they can convert M4V but fairly large number of them can only handle unprotected general M4V video not purchased iTunes items. Although some seemingly go into conversion process, the output file is probably broken or incomplete.
