iTunes M4V to Sony Tablet-Play iTunes M4V movie on Sony Tablet S without DRM restriction
Question: So I bought the Sony Tablet S and I’m wondering if it’s possible to download my itunes m4v videos to my Tablet. I can’t figure out how to get a M4V video onto it. I have lots of HD movies formatted .m4v from iTunes store, I wonder if the Tablet S can play these m4v files?
As we know, The M4V file format is a video file format developed by Apple and Apple uses M4V files to encode TV episodes, movies, and music videos in the iTunes Store. The copyright of M4V files may be protected by using Apple’s FairPlay DRM copyright protection. The unprotected M4V files without AC3 audio may be recognized and played by Tablet S by changing the file extension from “.m4v” to “.mp4″ using a M4V video to Sony Tablet S Converter. To play a protected M4V file, the Sony Tablet needs to be authorized. Unfortunately the Android devices have not get a license to play DRM contents, which means DRM protected M4V movies will not play on the SONY Tablet S.
However, there must a way to use the DRMed iTunes videos on the 9.4-inch Android tablet. As far as i know, the best solution is to remove DRM from the m4v videos and convert M4V to Sony Tablet S compatible formats (e.g. H.264 mp4) along with some help of the 3rd party tool.
