    I am trying to Convert an iTunes M4V file to an MOV file to edit in FCP. Is there a way to do this? My Mpeg Streamclip APP doesnt read the M4V file.
    Thanks :(

    If it's a copy-protected m4v you bought from the iTMS then it's not possible (afaik). If it's a normal, non-protected m4v I'd think FCP/E and all applications using the Quicktime API would read/import it normally.

    I tried importing it into FCP but it gives me a message that it will only play in iTunes. It wont play in Quicktime either. I guess it is copy protected.:(

    Handbrake works with tv shows/movies purchased from the iTunes Store?
