How to Transfer iTunes M4V Movies to Android Phones & Tablets


Why Can’t I Sync Videos from iTunes to Android Devices

I got error messages when I attempted to transfer iTunes movies to Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on Mac this morning. Does it have something to do with DRM? So do I need to remove the DRM protection from iTunes movies before putting them onto Note 4 or any other Android phones or tablets for watching?

If you are an Android user as well as iTunes user, you may always need to transfer iTunes movies, TV shows and other videos to your Android for playback. However, it’s not as easy as it sounds to be since all movies purchased or rented from iTunes are protected with DRM lock which will not allow you to directly transfer videos downloaded from iTunes to Android devices or any other media players except for Apple’s own devices. Thus you are forced to get rid of the DRM restriction firstly if you want to play those protected iTunes movies on Android phones or tablets. Then is it possible to remove DRM protection from iTunes videos? Here we go.

Best Tool to Convert iTunes DRM M4V Videos to Android Phones & Tablets

To remove DRM from iTunes movies and TV shows, you will need a professional iTunes application like TunesKit iTunes DRM Remover to help you. One more thing to mention is that since iTunes movies are saved in locked M4V format which can't be recognized by Android devices, you must convert the iTunes M4V movies to MP4 or any other Android supported video formats after removing the DRM from the M4V movies. This DRM removal tool from TunesKit Studio is not only a smart iTunes DRM cracker, but also a powerful iTunes to Android video converter which can remove DRM from iTunes M4V movie rentals and purchases while converting the DRM-ed M4V to DRM-free MP4 compatible with any Android device.
