“I have lots of music, movies and TV shows in iTunes. Can enjoy them on my Android tablet, like Google Nexus 10?”

Yes. There’s a piece of software called doubleTwist that works just like iTunes, letting you install your iTunes music collection on your Android phone or tablet. However, the movies and TV shows (*.m4v) can’t be played on Google Nexus 10 because of DRM protection, which limits the purchased iTunes movies to iOS devices. If you want to watch iTunes .m4v videos on Google Nexus 10, you have to remove the DRM protection and convert iTunes videos to Nexus 10 playable video format. This approach lets you transfer your iTunes movies to your Android phones and smartphones.

Before conversion you need to change iTunes options:

1. Launch iTunes, and switch to “Movies” under LIBRARY.

2. Select the videos you’d like to convert, right click on them, and select “Get Info”.

2. Click “Format” and select an output format for the Google Nexus 10. Here I choose “Android>> Google Nexus 7 H.264 Video (*.mp4)”. The format is optmized for both Google Nexus 7 and Nexus 10.

To further custom the profile for best effect you can click "Settings" and set video/audio parameters as it shows below:



Codec: xvid
Size (pix): 1280*720
Bitrate (kbps): 2000
Frame Rate (fps): original

Codec: aac
Sample Rate (hz): 44100
Bitrate (bps): 128000
Channels: Stereo

Tip: Do not set video resolution to 1920x1080 - the software exports 720p video at best quality.


3. Click “Convert” to DRM-free iTunes movies. The conversion proceeds as iTunes plays the movies. So DO NOT turn off iTunes until the conversion is completed.


When conversion completes, click “Open” to locate the DRM-free movies. Now you’re ready to get the converted iTunes movies onto Google Nexus 10. Access Google Nexus 10 via USB connection. When the DRM-free movies are copied to Google Nexus 10, you’re free to play them.


Some Tips:

1. iTunes Store movies are normally H.264 encoded .m4v files while H.264 encoded .mp4 format is more preferable for Android tablets- actually all tabs (Xoom, Galaxy Tab, HTC Flyer, Touch Pad, Playbook, etc) play the format.


2. You can extract MP3, AAC, WMA, M4R (iPhone Ringtone format) audio from iTunes Store videos with Pavtube ChewTune. Just select the audio format from “Common video” in step 2.


3. When Google Nexus 10 is connected to PC, you can sync/transfer videos from PC to Google Nexus 10.
