    Hi - Lately some the the videos I have acquired that work with VLC won't play in iTunes or on the ATV. I suspect it is due to the copy protection still existing in the file. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to remove this from the AVI so I can convert and play on ATV?

    What are you using to convert the files?

    Using Handbrake.

    But... I just ran across a thread that mentions that MetaX has a habit of corruption. :(

    Just tried on one of the freshly converted files and it worked in iTunes - then let MetaX do its work and no longer plays... Previously I ran MetaX over all the files.

    Not sure if this is my only problem or if the initial question might still apply. I might convert the files again and see what happens.
