On March 3, 2015, BlackBerry announced a new smartphone - BlackBerry Leap, as a follow-on to the affordable Z3 model with a number of upgraded features, including LTE support, higher-resolution display and cameras, higher-performance CPU, doubled internal storage capacity as well as the latest BlackBerry 10 operating system. If you're a BlackBerry diehard, you might probably be willing to replace your old phone with this new one soon. But in case you may meet the following problems regarding the playback issue on Blackberry devices like others, you'd better read on this article in advance if you also have the need to playback iTunes movies on Blackberry smartphones or tablets.

Q1: I can't sync the movie files from my iTunes library to BlackBerry Playbook for playback. It keeps saying "wrong format". What's wrong? How can I transfer iTunes movies to BlackBerry Playbook for watching?

Q2: My BlackBerry Z10 doesn't allow me to play iTunes movies on it by prompting the message that the file format is not supported even after I changed the .m4v extension to .mp4. Any solution?

Things You Should Know about iTunes Movies

Generally speaking, you can't play iTunes movie or TV episode on BlackBerry directly because iTunes movies and TV shows are not like other video files and they are protected by Apple's FairPlay. To play these protected iTunes movie files on Blackberry phones or tablets, you will have to remove DRM protection from iTunes movies and convert them to BlackBerry compatible formats like MP4.

To make it simple, you only need an iTunes to BlackBerry video converter, such as TunesKit iTunes DRM Video Converter (Mac & Windows) to do the iTunes M4V to BlackBerry conversion for you by following the steps below.

Therefore, you are able to enjoy high-quality video as the original one from iTunes on BlackBerry devices, like BlackBerry Playbook, BlackBerry Z3, Z10, Leap, etc.
