Apple was reasonably generous with its DRM restrictions–allowing you to play your purchased movies on up to five computers, burn it to CD, and play it on an unlimited number of iPads, iPods and iPhones–but what if you’re playing with an Android slab instead of an iPad?
You can still put the iTunes movies onto an Android tablet, but will be told by your tablet that it can not play them due to protections. That’s the way how DRM works and how Apple protect their online store movies. Sadly but the fact is we not even allowed watching a purchased movie on a favorable player. But if you really want to watch iTunes purchased movies on an Android tab, like Acer Iconia, there is a way to get around the DRM restriction. In this guide I will introduce how to get iTunes music videos onto Acer Iconia A100, a latest Android tab that undercuts iPad 2 quite a lot.
Tool used for DRM removal- Pavtube ChewTune ($29)
Click to purchase the app or download a trial from here- a trial puts watermark on converted videos. BTW, this app works with Windows 7 only.
Before conversion you need to change iTunes options:
1. Launch iTunes, and switch to “Movies” under LIBRARY.
2. Select the videos you’d like to convert, right click on them, and select “Get Info”.
3. Switch to “Options” tab, find “Remember position” and select “No” from its drop-down list. Click “OK” to confirm.
Now you can convert iTunes movies with Pavtube ChewTune:
1. Drag and drop the movies from iTunes Movie Library to the Pavtube ChewTune-iTunes M4V to MP4 Converter. Or you may click “Add” button on the main interface to import iTunes movies.
2. Click “Format” and select an output format for the Acer Iconia. Here I choose “Common Video>> H.264 Video (*.mp4)”.
3. Click “Convert” to DRM-free iTunes movies. The conversion proceeds as iTunes plays the movies. So DO NOT turn off iTunes until the conversion is completed.
When conversion completes, click “Open” to locate the DRM-free movies. Now you’re ready to get the converted iTunes movies onto Acer Iconia tab. Access Acer Iconia Tab A100 via USB connection. When the DRM-free movies are copied to Acer Iconia tab, you’re free to play them.
1. iTunes Store movies are normally H.264 encoded .m4v files while H.264 encoded .mp4 format is more preferable for Android tablets- actually all tabs (Xoom, Galaxy Tab, HTC Flyer, Touch Pad, Playbook, etc) play the format.
2. You can extract MP3, AAC, WMA, M4R (iPhone Ringtone format) audio from iTunes Store videos with Pavtube ChewTune. Just select the audio format from “Common video” in step 2.
3. When an Acer Iconia tab is connected to PC, you can drag and drop files to it like you do with any other USB storage device. But you can use Acer Sync as you like- a free tool for user to sync/transfer files from PC to Acer Iconia Tabs.

[Tips]Playing/watching/putting bluray movies on iPhone 5 for Mac
A new iPhone will be announced as iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S(maybe both) in September. It will sport a new design, a better 8 megapixel camera and the A5 dual core chip, which is currently found in the iPad 2. Thus iPhone 5 will easily deal with 1080p HD Video.

Nowadays many hot movies are made in Blu-ray/DVD Disc. And Many folks have taken advantages of the Retina display by copying their DVD and blu-ray movie collections to iTunes and transferring Blu-ray movie to iPhone 5. In my testing result, 720p H.264/AAC MP4 is the general format that is compatible with iPad, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4. So we can conclude this must be an optimal format for ripping DVD and Blu-ray movies to iPhone 5.
Take a look at the 720p H.264/AAC MP4 for Iphone 5
H.264/AAC MP4-the best format for iPad, iPhone 5, iPod Touch 4, and Apple TV.
We choose H.264 codec over MPEG-4 and M-JPEG due to H.264 can compress video into smaller size and maintain the same video quality. As to AAC? Apple has picked it out for us. Why use MP4 instead of M4V and MOV? Because MP4 ranks among the most popular video formats, and is supported by various other devices, for instance, PS3 and HTC droids.
720P-wide screen, HD quality and acceptable file size.
There are three reasons we choose 1280*720 over 640*480pix: firstly, 720P brings better image quality; secondly, 720P allows you to keep correct and wide screen aspect ratio for blu-ray and most DVD movies, you’ll have movies at 16:9 instead of 4:3, the picture will not be stretched when playing back; lastly, even 720P does not mean huge file size, you can still adjust other parameters to reduce file size.
