    So I purchased a TV episode in itune store for a client wanting it for his Acting Reel and it came as a .m4v file. I tried a bunch of video converters(mpeg stream clip, hand brake, adobe encoder, emisoft video converter, clipwrap) to convert it to a different format and nothing seems to work. It either goes through with the process and gives me a blank video or it says error and doesn't recognize it. I'm trying edit it premiere cs6.

    Can anyone else offer a solution or have dealt with something similar?

    It is copy protected, thus it cannot be transcoded for any other means or use with any unauthorised software, which an editing software would be.

    Probably has to go the DVD/BluRay route or acquire the episode via other means.
