Windows Phone might be less popular that iOS and Android devices, but there are still countless people using Windows Phone. Some Windows Phone users might consider enjoying iTunes videos on their Windows Phones. As a matter of fact, iTunes videos are DRM protected, which makes it impossible to play iTunes videos on Windows Phone in conventional ways. However, with a proper tool like an iTunes DRM removal tool, you can successfully remove DRM protection from iTunes videos and then you transfer those videos to Windows Phone for playback. Here in this post, I am going to introduce a piece of iTunes DRM removal software, and at the same time, an iTunes DRM media converter for you to watch iTunes DRM movies on Windows Phone.

Part 1: Brief Introduction to Windows Phone

windows-phone

Developed by Microsoft as the replacement successor to Windows Mobile and Zune, Windows Phone is a family of mobile phone running Microsoft Windows operating system. Windows Phone features a new user interface derived from Metro design language. Unlike Windows Mobile, it is primarily aimed at the consumer market rather than the enterprise market. It was first launched in October 2010 with Windows Phone 7. Windows Phone 8.1 is the latest public release of the operating system, released to manufacturing on April 14, 2014.

Windows Phone supports many video formats, including 3GP, 3G2, WMV, MP4, M4V, AVI, and MOV. In order to sync iTunes to Windows Phone (I mean iTunes videos here), you can firstly remove DRM protection from iTunes videos and then convert iTunes M4V videos to one of Windows Phone compatible video formats such as the universally-acceptec MP4 video format. To do it, you need a professional DRM iTunes videos to Windows Phone converter.

Part 2: Professional iTunes DRM Video to Windows Phone Converter

Speaking of iTunes DRM video converter, the first one that comes to my mind is Leawo Prof. DRM. Leawo Prof. DRM is not only an iTunes DRM removal, but also an iTunes DRM media converter. In other words, the program firstly removes DRM protection from iTunes M4V videos to make them DRM-free, and then convert iTunes M4V to other video format. Unlike other iTunes DRM media converters, Leawo Prof. DRM is preset with MP4 video output, which means it can convert iTunes M4V to MP4 only, which saves users a lot of time and energy in setting output profile. Therefore, the program can be regarded as an iTunes DRM video to Windows Phone converter. Download and install this iTunes to Windows Phone video converter, and get ready for watching iTunes on Windows Phone.
