Tip & How-To about Apple iTunes
Samsung has always been a big player in TV market since 2008. Through all these years, it has taken a upper hand in TV field by releasing so many overwhelming and breathtaking TV models, including the world's slimmest TV, largest curved UHD TV and the largest SUHD TV, etc. One of the most important reasons why people like Samsung Smart TV is that it will let us enjoy so many stunning video shows from the hot channels like Hulu, Netflix, etc. with built-in apps.
Samsung TV can't play iTunes movies or TV shows
Although Samsung TV sets support almost all kinds of video resources, it's not approved to play iTunes movies yet. Since Samsung is the world's largest TV manufacturer and iTunes is one of the biggest online digital stores, there could be a time when we would like to play the iTunes movies on Samsung TV sets. But the problem is that, as iTunes movies are restrictedly to play on Apple TV or other Apple devices only, it's no easy job to stream iTunes movies to Samsung Smart TV for watching at all.
If we browse the Samsung forums, we'll find there are a large number of requests seeking for the way to transfer iTunes movies to Samsung Smart TVs. So here I'd like to share a simple solution to get iTunes movies playable on Samsung TV easily.
Quick Workaround to watch iTunes movies on Samsung Smart TVs
To make iTunes movies watchable and supported by Samsung TV, you'll need a smart app called DRM M4V Converter, the best and fastest iTunes DRM removal tool I can ever tell. It comes with a very nifty interface, so that everyone can handle it without problem. The reason why I recommend this program than others, is simply because it can losslessly remove DRM copyright from both iTunes rentals and purchases, just like Requiem, the best known free iTunes DRM remover does. And it can also convert the iTunes movies from M4V format to common MP4 with original AC3 5.1 audio, subtitles, closed captions retained in 1:1 ratio. The best part of this software is it provides the ready-made profiles for Samsung Smart TVs so that you can directly convert the iTunes movies to fit for the Samsung TV settings preferectly.
The process to convert iTunes movies to Samsung Smart TV with DRmare is as easy as 1-2-3.
1.Load iTunes movies to DRmare M4V Converter. Simply launch DRmare and you'll see the button to add the files listed at the bottom left of the conversion window. Click on it and you'll be asked to choose the iTunes videos you want to convert to your TV from the drop-down list. Of course, you can also add the files by drag-and-drop.
2.Choose output format as Samsung Smart TV. Once loading the videos, you should click the format option to set the output format. Simply click the side menu and choose Samsung TV.
3.Let the conversion run so that it will begin to convert the iTunes movies to Samsung TV compatible format.
For more details and the complete guide in converting iTunes movies, you can refer to this source page: http://www.drmare.com/drm-m4v-to-tv/play-itunes-videos-on-samsung-smart-tvs.html.
Notice: If you have any problem in uploading the converted iTunes videos to your Samsung TV, I'd suggest you use some free video converter software, such as Handbrake or Freemake to re-encode the converted iTunes files to Samsung TV supported formats, like MP4 and then re-load the videos to your TV for playing. As it seems the encoding method used by DRmare is not the same as other common video converters, so the result videos may not match Samsung TV codec very well. Or if you need more assistance, you'd better contact the DRmare support team directly for quick solutions.
