Problems From Users on How to Burn iTunes Videos to DVD

Q: I have purchased several movies from iTunes. Since most of the times these movies are played on my APPLETV. However from time to time the children want to watch the movies in their room. I can not find any menu option that will allow me to burn purchased movies to a DVD. - From Noppie Apple Discussion Forum

Many of us would encounter the same problem as Noppie. Someone will want to backup the iTunes movies to normal DVD disc to save the storage space. Someone will want to convert the iTunes movies to DVD disc for playing with our Sony DVD players or other DVD players. And someone will want to backup their favorite movies purchased from iTunes to DVD just for collection.

However, it's not a easy task to convert all our iTunes purchased movies to DVD disc directly because of the DRM protection. As everyone know, iTunes M4V movies are encrypted by Fairplay DRM protection, which will prevent us burnning iTunes videos to DVD disc. The easiest way to resolve this issue is removing the DRM protection at first.
