How to convert iTunes movies to Galaxy Note using Pavtube ChewTune
As we all know, the TV episodes, movies, and music videos in the iTunes Store are encoded with M4V format. The copyright of M4V files may be protected by using Apple's FairPlay DRM copyright protection. DRM can not stop users putting iTunes movie to an Android device, but it stops an Android tablet or smartphone playing iTunes movies- that's why you get gray screen when trying to play an iTunes movie on Android tab like the mentioned Samsung Galaxy Note. However, the iTunes videos, with DRM removed and format conversion, can also be played in the Samsung Galaxy Note video player without problem. So the most important piece of the equation is that you have a DRM Removal Software installed to your PC.
