Samsung is the world’s top leading TV manufacturer and released the first Samsung Smart TV in 2008. Since then, it has continued to innovate the technologies to enhance the TV performance and quality and produced a number of world firsts such as the 29.9mm world’s slimmest TV in 2009, the 110-inch world’s largest UHD TV in 2013 and the 105-inch curved UHD TV in 2014. At CES 2016, Samsung announced the latest SUHD TV with quantum dot display.
Today in the latest 2017 TV models, Samsung completely redesigned its Smart TV experience. With a new intuitive menu, enhanced recommendations and various kinds of video apps, you can quickly access to your favorite shows, movies from Hulu, Netflix etc. However, just like other Smart TVs, it still can’t play iTunes M4V movies and TVs shows directly. In this article, I will explain why iTunes videos can’t be played on Samsung Smart TVs and find another way to do that.
The obvious reason is that iTunes M4V comes with the FairPlay DRM protection which is created by Apple Inc. for stopping piracy and unauthorized distribution to protect the authors’ benefits. But everything has the pros and cons. It also brings a lot of inconvenience for legal users. For example, the iTunes movies are limited to play on iTunes player on up to 5 authorized computers and it is impossible to edit the videos with DRM protection. Because of that many users don’t like the FairPlay at all.
But good news is that many software companies find out the demand of the customers and developed kinds of DRM removal tools to bypass DRM from iTunes videos so that to play iTunes videos on multiple devices including Samsung TVs. The top DRM remover for iTunes videos are including DRmare M4V Converter, TunesKit DRM Media Converter, Aimersoft DRM Media Converter, Pavtube ChewTune. Among all these iTunes DRM converting tools, DRmare M4V Converter is highly recommended for its neat interface and best performance. You can evaluate it by yourself too.
With a well-designed DRM converting tool DRmare M4V Converter, getting rid of DRM is rather easy. Please refer to this guide step by step.
After removing DRM from the iTunes videos, there should be no problem to play them on Samsung Smart TV any more. Generally, there are several ways to transfer and play videos on your Samsung TV. Following are the recommended top 2 ways:
Almost every Samsung Smart TV supports USB flash drives, please just copy the converted DRM free iTunes videos to the USB flash drive first from the computer. Then you can plug in the USB drive to the USB interface of your Samsung TV. Ultimately, you can choose to play local source media files on the Samsung TV and locate the videos from the USB drive to start to play. This is the most common and easiest way.
If you have a DVD burner on your computer, you can also burn the converted iTunes videos to a DVD first, then plug in the DVD disc to your Samsung TV to play. However, DVD is on the way out, so more and more new devices including some model of Samsung TVs don’t support DVD disc any more. Please have a check before you do that. Anyway, burning to DVD is a good way to backup and play videos. If you do want to play DVDs on some TVs which doesn’t have a built-in DVD Rom, you can also buy an external DVD player.
