How to Add iTunes DRM-ed Movies to iDVD to Burn to DVD


Although iDVD, a well-known DVD creation application for OS X made by Apple, has been discontinued, many DVD fans may still be keen on using this excellent DVD burning software to create DVDs on their Mac machines. As Mac addicts, you may also like some other services provided by Apple, such as iTunes, one of the biggest online media store in the world. So do you usually purchase or rent movies and TV shows from iTunes? If so, you must have the need to burn some iTunes movies to DVDs for backup or other purposes. But here comes the problem.
