BS Player

Q: "I downloaded my first video from iTunes and it played fine with my free Bs Player. I downloaded 2 more videos but they won't play unless I use the Quicktime Player. Is there a way to get these videos (M4V) to play with Free Bs Player???? I tried FFDSHOW but that didn't work. That doesn't make sense why 1 video would play and no others."- by Moranacus from Cnet

To understand why your video can be played on Quicktime Player while cannot on BS. Player and ffdshow, the first and the foremost thing you should know is that M4V format is a copy-protected video format protected by Fairplay, Apple company's Digital Rights Management Scheme. This scheme is to prevent people from enjoying their purchased or rented videos, music and audiobooks on any unauthorized non-apple devices, which means that you are not allowed to play any of your purchases or rentals on both non-apple devices and unauthorized apple devices.

Why Quicktime Player Works to Stream iTunes Videos

Quicktime Player is an extensible multimedia framework developed by Apple Inc., so needless to say, you can play the 2 more M4V videos on the Quickplay Player.

The fact is that due to the DRM protection there's barely any media player can stream iTunes videos except for iTunes itself and Quicktime Player. And one more thing needs to be noticed is that you can authorize only 5 devices. Even if you have many digital devices, you still don't have the freedom to watch iTunes as you want. So can BS Player play M4V files? It's a pity that you can't use BS Player to play DRM-ed M4V files, for example, iTunes videos and movies.
