Convert iTunes .m4v to .mp4

How can I convert movies and TV shows downloaded from iTunes from m4v to mp4?? Or can I even do that given they are copy protected? I can't even made a still screen cap from any of my iTunes movie or TV show purchases.

Normally it does suffice to rename from .m4v to .mp4, but since that content is copy protected, it will not work anyway, thus no screenshooting and so on.

What does that accomplish? Does it remove DRM? If not, another transcoding process is hardly necessary, as .m4v and .mp4 files are almost entirely the same (same video and audio codecs).

From what I saw on the Handbrake site it will not (or no longer) remove DRM as is noted on the "details" page of their site.

Use Requiem - at least, according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FairPlay , it's capable of breaking the DRM. (Haven't tested it myself so I'm not sure.)

Thanks but it only works with iTunes 9.0.2 or earlier. I have iTunes 10.

Could I install iTunes 9 on a different user on the same Mac? Worst case scenario is that I'll have to find the episode online and download it "illegally".

I can confirm REQUIEM is working! I just purchased a movie through iTunes and removed DRM protection with Requiem in order to be able to watch it over my Sony Bravia TV.

I previously used tuneskit m4v to mp4 converter

I previously downloaded the This M4V to MP4 Converter from this download site: https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/51...neskit-for-mac . It works flawlessly on my new Macbook Pro.

If the other web users have to click on your profile and find your other posts in order to find the website you spam for, does that not defeat the purpose?
Or is this some new kind of spam, interactive maybe?

Anyway, good luck, let's see how long you survive.
