How to remove iTunes DRM protection

The iTunes videos are limited to other media players, like Android phones, PSP, Zune, Windows Media Player, etc. So, what will you do if you want to watch iTunes videos on media players other than Apple devices?

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.
