Stream iTunes movies/songs on Xbox One

Q1: Watching iTunes movies on Xbox One? I downloaded a movie in iTunes recently that I want to play on my TV. I have an 8G flash drive that I use with my Xbox to watch videos. When I put TV shows and movies on it that I got in iTunes, my Xbox won't play them. Is there any way to watch movies I get in iTunes on my Xbox using the flash drive, while keeping good quality?

Q2: How to put iTunes on Xbox One? Is there a way to transfer iTunes music to Xbox One hard drive? If so, how do you do put them on the hard drive?

So you have this latest Xbox One which is a video game console developed and marketed by Microsoft. Announced on May 21, 2013, it is the successor to the Xbox 360 and is the third console in the Xbox family. Microsoft and various publications have classified the device as an "all-in-one entertainment system". Sounds great to play iTunes movies/songs on Xbox One, but that is not the case.

The thing is you cannot stream iTunes library to your Xbox One just like that. Stuff like movies, TV shows and videos purchased on iTunes Store have this Digital Rights Management (Short for DRM) which prevents users from enjoying them elsewhere other than Apple's products. Eventually, people find that they have a real tough time putting iTunes on Xbox One. If there is any way to get rid of the DRM limits, definitely we can get iTunes content onto Xbox One for enjoying. Is there? Short answer: Yes.

So what we do here is to remove iTunes DRM as well as convert iTunes DRM-ed M4V into an Xbox One compatible format, say WMV. Here we would recommend DRM Media Converter which combines both DRM Removal and Media Converter. With this all-in-one app, you will be able to bypass the restrictions and stream iTunes to Xbox One for enjoying. Below is the step-by-step guide on how to easily convert iTunes for Xbox One in just three clicks. Check it out.
