    I'm new to android as I've had iPhones for years.

    I want to convert my iTunes movies so I can play it in my new Note 3.

    Which DRM media converter has worked the best for you when converting iTunes movies to the note 3.

    I don't believe you can since they are copyright encoded for Apple only.

    There aren't any on phone apps that can do that that I'm aware of. There was a PC program that worked on Windows XP that could but I do not believe it has ever been updated to work on newer operating systems. I never did get into purchasing movies online, There's too much chance that the company that sells them could remove them from your collection for whatever reason at any time for me to get behind the practice. I still purchase DVDs and rip them myself using FairUse Wizard. Great little program for DVD ripping that's very easy to use.

    I'll ditto dontpanicbobby on that. There is no substitute for having your own personal drm-free copies and some sort of back-up copy of your media. Apple has traditionally been tight with drm and that's why I've always avoided their stuff and iTunes. It's how they lock people into their walled garden. They kind of gave way with music but it's still a bit of a tedious enough process to deter the average Joe. Movies are unfortunately still one realm that no one wants to give up their rights on. (Not the MPAA which means neither does Apple or Google, for that matter.)

    If you like a movie enough to own it, buy a physical copy and rip a version to watch on your device. You get to choose how good the quality is and how much space it takes up. I love me some comedy but it rarely needs to be HD for the humor to come through versus something created to be a stunning visual masterpiece.

    It sucks but the sooner you break that chain, the better off you'll be. It's ok to rent something you might only watch once or twice but if you really like it, you owe it to yourself to own a physical copy for safe keeping.
