"I start purchasing TV shows on iTunes. But they won't play on my Samsung. I renamed the files from mv4 to mp4, which makes then appear (the m4vs wouldn't even show up). But they don't play. Does anyone know a way that I can use iTunes movies on Samsung TV?
Samsung Smart TV can't play iTunes movies/TV shows that you purchased from iTunes Store in M4V format, how come? Those iTunes contents are protected by DRM and you can only play purchased iTunes video on no more than 5 authorized computer. How to solve this problem?
One method is to throw a handful of iTunes videos on an USB drive, plugging it directly into the Samsung's USB port, and have Samsung Plex playing from the drive.
Another method is using a professional iTunes Video Converter-Vidpie. Vidpie can remove iTunes DRM and convert them to unprotected MP4, H.264, MP3, etc before we stream it to your Smart TV. What's more, Vidpie can convert iTunes TV shows to unprotected format for different portable devices. It works perfectly on Windows 8.1, as well as Windows 7/Vista/XP.
Allow the audio drive installed during Vidpie installation. 2. Load DRM video from iTunes Library
Then click "Add video", "Add from Folder" or drag & drop video from Amazon Unbox to the program. You can add multiple files at a time.
3. Choose output format.
Click the "Format" and enter "H.264" to choose "H. 264 Video (*.mp4)" as the output format.
When all the settings are OK, click the Convert button on the main interface to start removing DRM from iTunes movie and converting to the MP4 for Samsung. After the conversion, click “Open output folder” to quick locate the converted video.
