Can We Watch the iTunes Movies via Plex Media Software Directly?

Q: I want to convert the iTunes video files to DRM-free so I can load them onto my BSD Unix server, running Plex Server software, and play them on my Samsung Smart TV or through my DLNA-compatible Sony DVD players anywhere on my home network, instead of just on my Apple devices. Is it possible do this directly?- From Rod Hutson

Generally speaking, we can't play the iTunes purchased or rented video files with any other media players or mobile devices except Apple's. All iTunes videos are DRM protected and encoded as M4V format, which is also the factor that many media players can't support iTunes video playing. So to watch the iTunes DRMed M4V videos via Plex Media server, we have to remove the DRM protection at first and convert DRMed M4V videos to unprotected MP4 format. For Mac users, TunesKit iTunes Media Converter is the best choice.
