How to Play iTunes Movies With Windows Media Player?

Do you still use and prefer Windows Media Player for music and video playback on your Windows? At least I do. However, when you try to play iTunes movies with Windows Media Player, you will get the following notice:


Windows Media Player can't play iTunes movies. This is because movies you rented or purchased from iTunes Store are in M4V format and DRM protected.

However, there is still a way to play your iTunes purchased or rented movies with Windows Media Player, all you need is a iTunes DRM removal tool that allows you to remove iTunes DRM and convert iTunes M4V movies to widely-supported MP4 videos. Here I recommend Ondesoft iTunes DRM Media Converter . Follow below steps and see how to convert iTunes purchased or rented M4V movies to MP4 on your Windows.
