What makes iTunes videos unique is not only because they are with high quality but also for its digital rights management protection which is known as FairPlay. Under this DRM mechanism, you are not able to play iTunes M4V videos on other non-Apple devices or edit them straightforwardly with any editing software.
So a standard audio extractor would not help to extract audio from iTunes videos. But please take it easy. There are multiple ways to help you get the job done. In particular, you can either use an audio recorder to record new audio tracks or simply use a DRM removal software to break the DRM encryption and extract the original audio tracks from the iTunes videos.
Personally, I won't recommend an audio recorder actually as it would significantly reduce the output audio quality. What I suggested is a tool called DRmare iTunes Audio Extractor which can get rid of DRM protection as well as convert videos to couples of audio format of files such as MP3, AAC, FLAC, ALAC, WMA, OGG , CAF, AIFF, APE and much more. It stands out among other similar software for its beautiful interface, usability, powerful features and especially the high performance to keep best quality by removing the least info to remove FairPlay DRM protection.
