Galaxy Tab M4V – Transfer/Play iTunes m4v movie on Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 without DRM restriction
Question: So I bought the new Galaxy Tab 8.9 and I’m wondering if it’s possible to download my itunes m4v videos to my galaxy tab. I can’t figure out how to get a M4V video onto it. I have lots of HD movies formatted .m4v from iTunes store, I wonder if the Galaxy Tab can play these m4v files?
As we know, The M4V file format is a video file format developed by Apple and 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. The unprotected M4V files without AC3 audio may be recognized and played by Galaxy Tab 8.9 by changing the file extension from “.m4v” to “.mp4″ using a Video to Galaxy Tab Converter. To play a protected M4V file, the Galaxy Tab needs to be authorized. Unfortunately the Android devices have not get a license to play DRM contents, which means DRM protected M4V movies will not play on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9.
However, there must a way to use the DRMed iTunes videos on the Galaxy slate. As far as i know, the best solution is to remove DRM from the m4v videos and convert them to Galaxy Tab compatible formats (e.g. H.264 mp4) along with some help of the 3rd party tool. When it comes to free iTunes m4v videos from DRM restriction/protection, Pavtube ChewTune is about as good as it gets. The DRM remover will easily make free iTunes m4v videos out of DRM-protected contents. Moreover, video and music purchased from Amazon and Digital Copy from Blu-ray/DVD can be also converted to fit your Galaxy Tab 8.9 and other Android devices. While the playback of the converted iTunes videos is smooth and decent as possible as original.
