software for converting itunes m4v into mp4's

Recommended Posts

Have you tried XMedia Recode before? If done correctly it lets you mux the file instead of converting (re-encoding) it, so no quality is lost.

Then you're doing it wrong.

i downloaded ffmpeg-3.2.4.tar

i open the compressed file to find 14 folders and 41 files...

the first folder leads to 11 folders, its unclear what to do.

You run ffmpeg.exe as per the websites instructions:

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 output.avi

 

You can also do it losslessly by using:

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -c:v copy -c:a copy -c:s copy output.avi

where c:v is video codec, c:a is audio codec and c:s is subtitle codec.

+1 for TunesKit. You can find a cracked version in this thread. Requiem used to be the best, but it requires iTunes 10.7 and 1080p no longer works with that. I don't know whether M4VGear is lossless or not, but TunesKit does perform a lossless decryption at least for the video and the AC3 audio. I suspect the AAC audio may be reencoded though. (See my post in the linked thread for an explanation of how I proved it's lossless.) And it also extracts the subtitles. (You will need to run CCExtractor on the output file if you want the subtitles in SRT format, because none of the players I've tried can handle EIA-608 closed captions other than iTunes itself.)

 

And indeed, iTunes content (other than purchased music) has DRM so regular remuxing tools will not work without decrypting it with another program first.
