People Can't Play iTunes Purchased/Rental Movies and TV Shows With VLC Player?

Yes. Generally speaking, we can't play the iTunes purchased or rented videos with VLC media player. Despite the M4V format is not listed in the above supported formats, the iTunes DRM attached in the iTunes videos allows us to play the iTunes movies/TV shows with Apple products only, like iTunes, iPhone, iPod, iPad and Apple TV etc. For people who like me don't like iTunes, how can we play our movies with VLC player?
