How to Transfer iTunes Video to Android Phones/Tablets

"Why can't I get my videos purchased from iTunes store transferred to my Samsung Galaxy S3? I want to watch the iTunes videos on the phone."

So what's the reason? It is due that the iTunes videos are DRM protected. Apple uses the M4V files to encode TV episodes, movies, and music videos in the iTunes Store. The copyright of M4V files is protected by using Apple's FairPlay DRM copyright protection.

As a result, you cannot directly transfer iTunes video to an Android phone or tablet for playback. You need to get a DRM removal software tool to help you remove DRM from iTunes video and convert iTunes video from M4V to MP4. Then you just feel free to put the plain MP4 video onto your Android phone or tablet.

The following guide is going to show you how to convert DRM protected iTunes video M4V to Android using DRM Media Converter, so that you can transfer iTunes video to Android phone or tablet and play iTunes video on Android phone or tablet.
