As we know, purchased movies and music from iTunes store are usually locked by Apple's FairPlay DRM protection (Music bought after 2009 are DRM-free). Due to the DRM protection, these videos and music can't be played or edited in non-Apple products. Of course, Windows Movie Maker is no exception! Is there any way to edit the downloaded iTunes music, video movies or TV episodes in Windows Movie Maker? Since Windows Movie Maker can't recognize iTunes music and video, it is not able to directly edit media files downloaded from iTunes in this program. However, there is still method to figure this out. Read on to get the solution.
Windows Movie Maker supports editing MP3/WMA/WAV music and WMV/AVI/MPG video format, while iTunes offers music in AAC (DRM-protected MP4, non-DRM M4A) and video movie in MOV or DRM-protected M4V. For this reason, to import video/music downloaded from iTunes to Windows Movie Maker, you need to remove DRM protection from iTunes music/video first and then convert them to Windows Movie Maker supported format. To do this, you need the help of a third party DRM converter.
