Question:How To: Get An iTunes-DRMed Movie Experience On Android Tablet Via Mac OS?

With your iOS Device iPad 2, iPod Touch, iPhone 4S, iPod, you can use iTunes to sync, organize and manage music and movies. And iTunes can connect to the iTunes Store to purchase and download music, music videos, television shows, movies and movie rentals. As you see, those videos files including TV episodes, movies, and music videos from iTunes Store are encoded with a "M4V" file format. Many folks take it for granted that they have the full access and control of the things they purchased, but things turn to be different when it comes to getting movies purchased from iTunes store to an Android-based Tablet. It's all about the copyright of iTunes M4V files may be protected by using Apple's FairPlay DRM copyright protection.


DRM (digital rights management) is a technology used by content providers, such as online stores, to control how the digital music and video files you obtain from them are used and distributed. Online stores (Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, etc) sell and rent songs and movies that have DRM applied to them. DRM can not stop users putting iTunes movie to an Android device, but it stops an Android tablet and smartphones playing iTunes movies- that's why you get gray screen when trying to play an iTunes movie on Android tab like the Nook Tablet, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Kindle Fire, Asus Transformer Prime, Motorola Xoom, Toshiba Thrive.

iTunes movie sounds like a "forbbiden fruit" for Android Tablet. It's your movie, you bought it, and you should be able to watch it how you want to watch, when you want to watch it. For internal solutions, we'll need to get some help from the third-party software which owns the capability of getting iTunes-drmed movies ready for any Android tablet playback. I mean to have the full access and control of your purchased iTunes videos, movies, and TV shows, you need professional DRM removal tool that convert iTunes DRM-protected contents to DRM-free videos. There are many programs out there that allow you to make free the iTunes m4v movies out of DRM restriction and let you watch them on the Android Tablet like Acer A500, Sony Tablet S, Lenovo Tablet the way you want. A recommended one here is ChewTune – a Mac iTunes movie to Android Tablet Converter. Specially designed for iTunes video zealots who use Mac OS, the application is an easy-to-use yet powerful DRM remover and converter tool which can help you strip DRM from iTunes m4v movies and change the file extension from ".m4v" to something like ".mp4" Android Tablet can recognize and play. This ideal program adopts advanced audio and video encoding technology, which will never bring you troubles of audio and video out of sync issues and it supports conversion to many popular device formats. The most important piece of the equation is that the playback of the converted videos is as decent as original. Below is DRM removal process from iTunes movies, you can take it as reference.

Get rid of DRM from iTunes movies and switch the "M4V" to "MP4" for playback with Android Tablet

The process is straightforward. After installation, run the mac iTunes movie Converter for Android Tablet, put in password for user account as it requires. Press the "Add" icon to browse to iTunes library movie folder(In Finder window, open Music-> iTunes-> iTunes Media-> specific movie folder-> single .m4v file, and then press on "Choose"). Select an Android friendly format, e.g. H.264 .mp4 for conversion. There are optimized format for Galaxy Tab, Xoom, HP Touch Pad, Acer Iconia Tab, Eee Pad Transformer etc. Basically the "Common Video">> "H.264 Video (*.mp4)" is an universal format for Android tablets and smartphones. After everything is done, you can start the conversion from iTunes m4v to mp4 for your Android Tablet.

Note: To use the Mac iTunes m4v Converter, it is required that iTunes latest version be installed and correctly configured, which means you'll need to

1. Set iTunes not to remember playback position.
2. Set iTunes to 32bit when/if you use ChewTune on Mac OS X Lion.

Sure, ChewTune is not the sole Mac DRM removal software that enables you to get the iTunes-DRM movies on your Android Tablets, there are penty of other apps to try and experiment with. If so ,you may refer to my previous article "Reviews: Top 5+ DRM Removal Programs for Android Tablets" for the final decison".
