Mostly are movies purchased from iTunes. (cartoons / kids’ movies for my daughter.) I need to play iTunes HD movies on my android phone so she can watch them at the restaurant / during travel. I’ve been using Vidpie. Despite a few glitches, it can get the job done.I’ve tried demos of a couple of competing products, and Vidpie has better quality.
However, I got some problems. When converting HD movies, I often get the message that my display is not HDCP compatible (this only occurs when running iTunes through Vidpie). Once this problem occurs, it continues to occur until a reboot. I can never get conversion to go faster than 1x movie playback speed, even though it only uses 15% of my CPU to convert. After conversion, the file icon for the movie is just some random frame, often a black one. It would be nice if it used the iTunes artwork on the movie icon.
Now I install the latest Vidpie v4.6.0, it seems work much better.
Supports Windows 8.1 and latest iTunes 11.1.5
Convert iTunes movies to various formats optimal for different devices

Below is a guide to stream iTunes HD movies to Android MP4. Hope it is helpful.
Step 1: Install Vidpie
Here, make sure that your computer is authorized by source iTunes video which means you can play iTunes movies in iTunes without trouble.
Allow the audio drive installed during Vidpie installation.
2. Load DRM video from iTunes Library
Then click "Add video", "Add from Folder" or drag & drop video from Amazon Unbox to the program. You can add multiple files at a time.
3. Choose output format.
Click the "Format" and enter "Android". You can choose a formats optimal for your device, such as Samsung, HTC, Nexus, etc. Here I choose "Common video for Android and Apple Devices(.*mp4)".
When all the settings are OK, click the Convert button on the main interface to start removing DRM from iTunes movie and converting to the MP4 for Samsung. After the conversion, click “Open output folder” to quick loc
