As one of the largest online video websites, YouTube has become the best choice for video fans to share their favourite video clips with others. But sometimes you’ll meet problems when you try to upload some video sources to YouTube, such as the movies you bought from iTunes store. Why it’s so difficult to upload iTunes movies to YouTube? Well, the reason is because iTunes movies are not like the common video files you downloaded or made by yourself. In order to protect the copy-right of movies sold on iTunes, Apple has adopted DRM FairPlay to make the iTunes movies in .m4v format which can only be well recognised by its own devices. That also prevents you from uploading or sharing iTunes movie purchases to YouTube directly. But don’t worry.
