Q: "Hi, I recently bought some iTunes movies on my iPad Air. But I also want to transfer these movies to my Windows computer and watch them with Windows Media Player 12. You know, iTunes is not a perfect choice to watch movies. Can TunesKit help me convert iTunes DRMed M4V videos to Windows Media Player formats?" - From Jon William

A: Yes. Of course. As we all know, the movies we purchased from iTunes movie store are totally encrypted by Apple's Fairplay DRM technology.
