Aug. 5, 2009 - PRLog -- Since the Zune Marketplace dosen't offer movie download service, Zune holders who are not satisfied with the spare Zune Marketplace or want to watch movie in full length have to turn to iTunes, Amazon Unbox, or the normal DVD disk for feed.
However, unfortunately the .m4v movie, as well as the .m4p music and the .m4v TV shows, from iTunes are still copyright protected by Apple's incoperatible 'Fair Play' DRM system, which prohibites other device but iPods playing iTunes content. Furthermore, the iTunes rented movies have dead limitation to watch within 30days and 24hrs (once you began to watch it).

It is the same situation when comes to the DRM-protected .wma music and .wmv video movie from other online base like Windows Media Centre, Napster, Rhapsody, Nokia Music Store, Spiralfrog, Bearshare, eMusic, Puretracks, MusicGiants, CinemaNow Movielink, Amazon Unbox, of course, and the Zune MarketPlace itself.
So unless Zune folks has a third party DRM Removal Software to strip the license protection and convert media formats to Zune compatible .wmv, .mp4, .m4v, or H.264, they can't enjoy those digital content, as what the big brands said, "On The Go"!

Here this step-by-step guide which is divided into two parts FYI:

Part 1: How to sync and play iTunes music video on Zune player

1. Free download this DRM Media Converter, install and luanch it, the default settings work well with your PC, you don't need to make anymore configeration.

2. When come to the main interface, you can directly drag-drop target media file to the conversion window, or hit the top-left 'Add' button to import the target files.
Since Zune plays WMV / M4V / MP4 / H.264 video files with peak 720 x 480 pixels and 30 fps, if you're picky on the output quality, the function module 'settings' can help you with  it by offering adjustable parameters covering Bit Rate, Resolution, Aspect Ratio, and Frame Rate as well.

3. When finish the preceding 2 steps, hit 'start' button lower-right on the main window, then everything done, you can freely enjoy iTunes rented movie & music video & TV shows on your Zune MP3 players without any ristriction!

(1) Port your Zune with computer, open the Zune software, select Settings, then Software.

(2) Under Monitored folders, add a folder under Music that corresponds to the location of your iTunes music files, and another one under Video that corresponds to the location of your iTunes video files. Zune software will automatically add them to your collection.

Part 2: How to play DVD movie on Zune player

If you want to transfer DVD movie to Palm phone, this DVD Ripper + Video Converter Pro can help to crack DVD CSS protection, split DVD movie to clips, and convert them to Zune compatible audio & video formats.

If you're a Mac-based user, this iMedia Converter for Mac is an ideal choice.

The conversion process is the same easy and simple as illustrated above, here I just saved it.


The DRM Removal and DVD Ripper software mentioned above can do even more jobs by converting all the popular media formats like M4P, M4B, M4V, WMV, ASF, WMA, MP4, M4A, AVI (Divx/Xvid), MOV, 3GP, 3G2, CD.dat, DVD.vob, h.264, HD(.m2ts; .tp; .trp; .ts), HD(.mp4; .wmv; .asf; .mpg; .vob; .mov; avi), DV, NSV, NUT, Real audio & video(.rm; .ra; .ram; .rmvb), FLV, FLAC, AIFF, SWF, MPG, MP3, AC3, OGG, APE, AAC, WAV, MKV, MKA, etc.

They support not only Palm phone, but also the other digital player as iPod, iPhone, PSP, PS3, Zune, Xbox, Creative Zen, Archos, Iriver, Sansa, Blackberry, Samsung, Sonywalkman, Nokia, HTC, LG, Moto, Cowon, Pocket PC, etc

Have fun with your lovely Zune player!
