Re: How to Transfer Purchased iTunes M4V Movies to Blackberry Playbook on Mac OS X

Is this the only way convert movies into the proper format so that they will work on the Playbook? It seems a bit silly to have to pay almost $40.00 for the ability to play movies on a device in which that ability is one of the main components. If it is the only way that's fine just annoying.

Re: How to Transfer Purchased iTunes M4V Movies to Blackberry Playbook on Mac OS X

Can I convert it into another format? I did every step and finally when I started to watch the movie it was pretty small, I feel like the HD feature of my playbook is useless this way, and also i wasted $40 dollars.

Yes, you can set the output format as "Customized MP4 Movie(*mp4)", then set the size as"1024 x 600 ",  then your converted movies will play full on your Playbook.

Re: How to Transfer Purchased iTunes M4V Movies to Blackberry Playbook on Mac OS X

if you want to decode DRM, you simply need to have the "closed keys" to decode them, and the legal right to do it.

For the legal right, it's just a matter of signing a contract with the DRM maker (for example the iPod division has those keys made by the iTunes division).

For the getting the closed keys, it is always possible, but can lead to difficulties in your personal life. look for DeCSS on Wikipedia to understand.

Well for win pcs there's also Audials Tunebite , that's the one I use at least. Worked for me to convert iTunes m4v protected videos to mp4 for my BB.

 

This one was actually pretty useful because it comes with customizable conversion profiles; these let you chage conversion settings and choose whatever frame rate, bit rate etc I need to get the files converted just right.

 

Should be helpful for u guys as well.
