You may have the same problem. As we all know, the movies we purchased from iTunes movie store are totally encrypted by Apple's Fairplay DRM technology, which attempts to control use of digital media by preventing access, copying or conversion by users to other formats or players. So this annoying DRM copy protection is the barrier for watching the iTunes protected videos with other media players.

What's more, iTunes video, movie and tv shows are in unique .mov or .m4v formats that can't be recognized by Windows Media Player. While WMP plays .wmv, .avi, .mp4 video only. To watch iTunes movies with Windows Media Player on Windows computer, we should convert the iTunes video to Windows Media Player first.

1. MP4 - MPEG-4 video, the most universal video format compatible with any devices and media players.
2. WMV - Windows Media Video, it's a official video container formats for WMP.
3. AVI - Audio Video Interleave, introduced by Microsoft, supported well by WMP.
