Know about iTunes Extras
If you are a new comer to play iTunes Extras, you’ve got to learn this. Based on information provided on iMore, iTunes Extras are like DVD to Blu-ray movies extras that play right inside iTunes on the Mac or Windows, on the Apple TV, and soon with iOS 8, on the iPhone and iPad as well. They can include director’s commentary, deleted scenes, bonus scenes, making-of documentaries, and other features. Sadly, not all devices or systems are able to freely play iTunes Extras due to DRM encryption, which is widely applied on iTunes media contents, let alone iTunes Extras. That means in favor of FairPlay, DRM restricts the free application of iTunes media contents on other devices or systems and to make it specific in our case, iTunes Extras can only be playable on iTunes. Besides that, iTunes Extras are available on iTunes HD videos only with obvious badge signs shown on the cover, but not all movies have iTunes Extras and if you just rent the movie, sorry, it will not allow you to share the iTunes Extras.
