How can I fix this problem? I just want to play the iTunes movie on my Sony PS3 for my long travelling, I promise this is legal action, so which methods can help me remove DRM from iTunes M4V and convert m4v to Sony PS3?
iTunes M4V Video
The M4V file format is a video file format developed by Apple Company. It is very close to MP4 format. Apple uses the M4V files to encode TV episodes, movies, and music videos in the iTunes Store. To play a protected M4V file, the computer needs to be authorized (using iTunes) with the account that was used to purchase the video.
