    Argg! I'm so fustrated right now! I recently moved a majority of my music and video files to my mac and i just realized that quicktime pro didnt come with my mac :eek: I need a legitimate suggestion on a video converter thats free.
    I also need something that will convert M4P (iTunes purchases with DRM :mad:) to MP3

    For the first part, use FFMPEG or Handbrake (for DVDs)

    For the second part... burn to CD and Re-Rip.

    iSquint or the better VisualHub are great for converting all kinds of video files. :)

    Why don't you just authorise your mac as one of your computers that can play itunes purchases for this?

    Handbrake uses the FFMPEG engine and is much much easier to use (I could never get FFMPEG to work myself). And it supports MKV.
