M4V to Nook Tablet-Play iTunes M4V movies on Nook Tablet
Question: I have lots of HD movies formatted .m4v from iTunes store, I wonder if the Nook Tablet can play these m4v files?
As you see, Apple uses M4V files to encode TV episodes, movies, and music videos in the iTunes Store. The copyright of M4V files may be protected by using Apple’s FairPlay DRM copyright protection. The unprotected M4V files without AC3 audio may be recognized and played by Nook Tablet by changing the file extension from “.m4v” to “.mp4″ using a Video to Nook Tablet Converter. To play a protected M4V file, the Nook Tablet needs to be authorized. Unfortunately the Android devices have not get a license to play DRM contents, which means DRM protected M4V movies will not play on the Nook Tablet.
However, there must a way to enjoy the DRMed iTunes videos on Nook Tablet. As far as i know, the best solution is to remove DRM from the m4v videos and convert them to Nook Tablet compatible formats (mp4 or vp8) along with some help of the 3rd party tool.
