A normal video converter can perform tasks like video conversion, cropping, resizing, trimming etc. But when it comes to a movie or a TV Show purchased and downloaded from iTunes, you can’t play it on other handheld devices. iTunes adds DRM protection to purchased videos and movies, TV Shows to disable playing on other devices.
It is worth mentioning here that such issues can be quite frustrating for people who might have multiple handheld devices and unable to play purchased videos especially from iTunes.
