I'm trying to transfer my purchased movies from iTunes to Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S but keeps receiving the error. It just tells me that the iTunes film format is not supported by the smartphone. Am I doing something wrong? How can I stream iTunes movies to Xiaomi mobile devices? Can you advise? -- Jenny

iTunes movies are supposed to play on many devices, such as Mac, PC, iPhone, Apple TV, or iPad. However, you may get unexpected error just like Jenny when attempting to copy the iTunes movie files to Xiaomi or other non-Apple mobile devices. In this article, we'll show you the easy solution to move iTunes movie to Xiaomi Mi Mix/Redmi and other series for watching without a hassle.

Can't Transfer iTunes Movies to Xiaomi Smartphones? Why?

Unlike the common video files downloaded from YouTube or other websites, movies sold in iTunes Store are encrypted in M4V file format with DRM, the digital rights management which is used to protect the copyright of the digital items. To be specific, only authorized devices like Apple's iPhone, iPad, computers can recognize and play the iTunes M4V movies well. Other devices such as Xiaomi Redmi/Mi Mix which is incompatible with iTunes are not allowed to play the M4V at all.

In result, to put the protected iTunes M4V files to Xiaomi smartphones, we have to find a permanent way to eliminate the DRM lock from iTunes movies and then convert the M4V videos to Xiaomi compatible formats, such as MP4, WMV, MKV, or others. To complete these jobs, all you'll need is a comprehensive third-party iTunes DRM removal software.
