More and more people like to purchase movies or TV shows from iTunes, then, they can watch them on their iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Apple TV etc. Maybe you are just one of them. Do you find that the iTunes contents only can be played by Apple products? If you tried to stream them to android devices for playing, you will get an error message, said that “unrecognized files”.
According to my own experience, almost no android devices can play iTunes movies and TV shows. Even if the newly released Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Actually, iTunes movies and shows are protected by using Apple’s FairPlay DRM copy protection. To play a protected M4V file, the computer or device needs to be authorized (using iTunes) with the account that was used to purchase the video. Obviously, Galaxy Note 3 doesn’t have a license. In this case, in order to play iTunes movies freely on Galaxy Note 3, we have to remove DRM protection off iTunes movies in advance. The professional DRM removal tool is necessary.
