I have a bunch of digital copies of movies on itunes since I'm a reformed iphone user.

I still really enjoy the simplicity of itunes and all of my media is on there so I'd love to be able to continue using it.

Is there a way to get them onto my X ?

I tried copying the files to my sd card and then playing them. The stock video player wouldn't recognize the file to play it.

With arcplayer the video didn't even show up on the sd card.

Using rockplayer it does act like it's playing but there is no picture or sound.

Sorry if this is I noob question. I did a little digging but , everything that showed up about ripping dvds which isn't what I want.

Thanks in advance.

Sadly the movies are already on itunes. Unless I missed how to transfer them somewhere in that link.

I believe they are mp4.

At least that's what the file says on my phone.

iTunes movies are DRM protected and will not play on an Android device. Some Digital Copies can be synced using WIndows Media Player, but for iTunes there is no proper solution.
There are a few DRM removal tools out there that record the file while it is being played on your computer (such as Tunebite) but you will end up with mixed results.

Unfortunately, while its understandable that Apple doesn't care about non-Apple devices, the movie industry seems to help in providing good old Steve with a world dominance.

Its easier to convert your own DVDs.

Trying to detatch yourself from iTunes, get the same functionality and look, and have android syncing capabilities:
MediaMonkey Info (http://www.mediamonkey.com/news/2009/11/19/mediamonkey-3-2-released-syncs-with-the-latest-phones/)

DRM holding you back?

Ah yes, I forgot itunes downloads are drm protected. You will have to do as the others suggested above and remove the protection.

I know that Itunes used to have a section where you could re-purchase older DRM music for a lower fee that would be free of the DRM.

I can’t find it in the latest version of Itunes. Anybody know how to find it?

Ouch.

Sound Taxi that does video is $40.

Not sure if I care that much.

There are probably ways around that.

Well, tunebite 6.0 is free to try, does audio and video, and is only $26.99 to purchase.. Might be worth a look.

Oops.. sorry, I will stop. What I really meant was that

*one way you could avoiding paying 40 dollars for that software is to look at alternatives that are cheaper and do the same thing, like tunebite. : )

I used Daniusoft converter for everything it took a while but it seems to work. I am in process of bring all my music from Itunes to MediaMonkey now. I have used MM to sync my music successfully to my phone. The only thing I haven't figured out is how to get my ratings from Itunes to MM. I wish I would have known about MM alot sooner it rocks compared to Itunes.

Thanks to "WugFresh" for the heads up on that..
