    I don't think it's possible to do that since iTunes belongs to Apple and the play store belongs to Google. :eek:

    Movies bought from iTunes have Digital Restrictions Management(DRM) copy protection. They're restricted and can only be played in iTunes and Apple iOS devices. Same thing for movies bought from Google Play, they're restricted to Android only with DRM copy protection, and won't play on Apple iPhones and iPads.

    Little off topic, but do videos from Amazon have DRM? For some reason I thought those could be copied?

    However Digital Copy DVD's that you buy in stores don't have the same restrictions. These should be ok.

    As posted above, you can rip and re-encode DVDs. These will often have very weak DRM(Content Scramble System), which was cracked years ago. As long as you own the DVDs, and you're only putting them on your own devices, you're good to go.

    Depending on where you are. If you're in the US, movies are available from Amazon, Netflix and Google Play. If you're in China, like me.....no comment. :rolleyes:

    They do have DRM and can only be played in the Amazon Unbox software as far as I know. I believe Amazon movies are compatible with some Android devices, not sure about the S3 though. I stopped downloading movies a while ago, too many restrictions. Now I just buy the DVD and rip it myself.
