How do I play movies purchased through iTunes and stored on my Apollo Cloud on iOS devices?  When I try opening them on the Apollo App I'm told the app is not authorized to play this file type (m4v)?  Thanks!

Hi Bryan,

Could you please confirm are you able to play the same video file in the Mac local drive? Make sure you have updated the latest utility and fimware in the unit.

Yes, the movies can be played locally, but only through iTunes. And yes, I've updated to the latest firmware version. I'm guessing it has to do with the DRM feature on the files downloaded from iTunes?

Generally speaking, you can play purchased iTunes movies on Apple devices without limitation. If you want to play these videos on non-Apple devices, you may have ot remove DRM protection. Since all iTunes videos are encrypted with fairplay DRM protection, making it impossible to be played on Apple unauthorized devices, including your Apollo Cloud maybe. You can try to use a M4V media converter to remove DRM protection at first. Then try to play iTunes movies with MP4 format on the devices that you want. Hope this tip is useful to you. Good luck.

When it comes to itunes video converter free, there are are a lot in the market. However, none of them come out with a satisfactory output quality due to the encryption of latest iTunes encryption. Fortunately DRmare M4V Converter keeps updating every a few weeks. It supports to convert iTunes movies, TV shows, Extras perfectly. In additon, the converting speed is up to 20X faster. The only shortcoming is that it may not convert DVDs or videos from other sources.

iTunes Movies is under Apple’s Digital Rights Management protection, better known as DRM. You may have purchased or rented movies from iTunes, and would like to enjoy those iTunes movies somewhere instead of on iTunes. As iTunes movies are protected and encrypted, it is difficult to get through Apple’s DRM project. Perhaps you can ultilize a screen recorder to get rid of iTunes DRM, but this method not only is time-wasting, but also causes some quality loss. Here in this guide, an iTunes DRM removal or a DRM media converter is introduced for you to remove DRM from iTunes movies.
