Question: I downloaded a movie from iTunes and want to play the iTunes movie on my Zune HD. But the movie is extended with .m4v format in DRM protection. I can’t play M4V files on Zune directly. Is there a tool which could remove DRM protection and convert M4V to Zune videos?

Extended Knowledge

M4V is a file container format used by Apple’s iTunes application. The M4V file format is a video file format developed by Apple and is very close to MP4 format. The differences are the optional Apple’s DRM copyright protection, and the treatment of AC3 (Dolby Digital) audio which is not standardized for the MP4 container.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.
