    I have been trying to convert a movie from iTunes to a smaller file size (because I can't get a file larger than 4GB onto my flash drive). Handbrake can't work out the encoding and stops responding almost immediately. I have tried this on a mac running mavericks and on a PC running windows 7, but no luck. I can convert other files fine. Does Apple encode their movies in a way that Handbrake cannot crack? Is their some other way I can shrink the file size or break it into two files?

    iTunes movies are DRM (copy-protected, locked to your iTunes account) and can't be converted.
