For those of us who aren't familiar with what format iTunes videos are in when they are downloaded, please enlighten us.

I know that mpeg4 is one format that the iPod plays, but I just don't know if that's the format they download in since I've never downloaded anything from iTunes for the iPod.

Knowing the format might help us figure out how to convert them.

it is Mpeg4, but it has to be played on an authorized computer, which mine is, but i dont know if they have some kind of protection on them or something. I was asking incase someone else on here has done it and knows how it's done.

Try DVD Santa (it's free to download the trial version, $19.99 for the full). The trial will put a banner on about the first minute of the DVD but after that it's clear.

I know DVD santa will convert Mpeg and WMV files into DVD structure (VIDEO TS and AUDIO TS), not sure about mpeg4 but you can try it.

All I can say then is try doing a google search for converting MPEG4 files to DVD.

you might hit on a conversion program.

nope, none of those would do it, but after researching the file some more, i found out that it is an M4V file not MPEG 4

SORRY.

Guess you'll have to look out for an M4V file conversion program then. I don't know of any

It is an MP4 with DRM protection. They can only be opened on an ipod or with itunes. They can't be converted to anything else as a result.

I think the threadstarter suspected as much. I bet he was just wondering if someone knew of a program that *could* do it.

Just like some DVDs have copyright protections that aren't supposed to be copy-able (e.g. Sony's Arrcos(sp?)), but that doesn't mean that there aren't programs out there that can't overcome the protection.

Yup, same thing with iTunes song downloads. First they make you pay for it, then they restrict how you use it and they wonder why people would rather pirate music.
