How to Put iTunes DRM Protection Music/Movies on Xbox 360

Here's the thing: You're both  a 360 and iTunes fan. You have an iTunes library and want to stream it to your Xbox 360. But you know that songs, videos, movies and television shows purchased or rented from the iTunes Store have Digital Rights Management (DRM) that prevents them from being played on anything but computers, iPods, Apple TVs and iPads. Though Xbox can stream music using Windows Media player or Windows Media Center, it was cumbersome. So you wonder if there is a simple way that you can put iTunes music/video to Xbox 360.

Currently only the Windows Media Video (WMV) file format and codecs are supported by Xbox 360.

However, iTunes provides music in non-DRM MP3, M4A, DRM'ed M4P; TV shows & movies in DRM'ed M4V. Luckily, DRM Media Converter can solve all the problem – remove iTunes DRM and convert iTunes music or movies to Xbox 360 compatible formats. With this DRM remover, you can stream music and movies from iTubes to Xbox 360 in a hassle free manner. Just read on to learn how Xbox 360 stream from iTunes with ease.

It\'s so cool how you can stream movies from iTunes to your Xbox 360. I am always playing on my Xbox. I don\'t want to get off it to watch regular TV. Now I don\'t have to

If you want to run a file with anything other than the WMV extension on an Xbox 360, then good luck. It\'s likely not to work. But if you have the DRM Remover (as I do now), you can download and convert files to any format you want and then play on the Xbox 360. A very good piece of software to own.

It was so frustrating dealing with the built in DRM protection; especially when trying to play an iTunes file on Xbox 360.  The DRM remover deals with this problem easily; removing and converting to a format that I need.  No problems playing my movies or music on any device I want now; especially the Xbox 360.  Don\'t know what I would do without this software.
