Convert iTunes Movies/TV Shows for Playback with VLC
Many people are quite used to purchase or rent videos from Apple’s iTunes store, but they rarely use iTunes media player for too much limitation of video formats, compared with VLC media player. It is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats totally freely. VLC is also able to stream media over computer networks and transcode multimedia files.
However, the question remains: "Will the versatile VLC media player play iTunes M4V movies/TV shows successfully?" Generally speaking, iTunes M4V movies and TV shows are in special M4V format with DRM protection, which means such videos are only available to enjoy on Apple devices, like iPad Air 2, iPhone 6.
