Question: “I have some movie like Iron Man 3, The Hobbit, Thor: The Dark World, The Wolverine and planes that I bought on iTunes and I can’t play them on Kindle Fire HDX. Many millions of people have music they’ve purchased from iTunes, we can play iTunes music and movies on iPad and iPhone, but what about Kindle Fire HDX? How can I put it on my favourite iTunes M4V movies on Kindle Fire HDX?
“iTunes movies are to be used only on Apple devices officially. You can’t watch iTunes movies on Android tablets, without removing the DRM protection. And if you want to watch them in Kindle Fire HDX, there’s another work you need to do: converting to another format with proper video size. In your case, MP4 is most widely used.”
