Hey folks... newb here. I'll just give you a run-down of what I'm trying to get done...

I HAVE - a handful of "Protected MPEG-4 Videoes" in my itunes library, some purchased directly through itunes, others downloaded through digital copy

I'D LIKE - to put a few of these movies onto my phone, even if I have to pay for DRM removal software

MY DILEMMA - I can't seem to find any Mac compatible software that allows me to do this... any suggestions?

Sorry, I'm not a mac user, but you will have a bit of a hard time getting this to work.

iTunes files are DRM-protected, and prevent conventional tools (DVD Catalyst/Handbrake etc) to convert them, and players such as vPlayer and RockPlayer also do not support DRM, so they can not play them.

There are a few programs out there that use a screen recording method to record the video while it is played. While this works, the quality as well as the speed usually fall behind performing your own conversions.

Doing a quick google search didn't bring up anything concrete, but I think your question might receive better answers on an Apple/iTunes forum.
