Video/iTunes Shenanigans

Hey, I bought a video off iTunes and want to show it via Media Shout but it’s not letting me. (Dana actually, she puts together our Media for Sunday mornings.)

Anyone know how to burn to a DVD from iTunes?

Or import it into Media Shout via a converter I suppose?

    I think our media guy uses a video camera to record the itunes video playing on his monitor, and runs an audio cable from the computer to the camera. He gets pretty good quality…

    Why not simply show it from iTunes? It has an option to show the video in fullscreen.

    There is currently no way to export a video from iTunes into any other format (blasted media execs). The other thing you can do is purchase an appleTV and show it from there, as it basically functions the same as a DVD player or Media Extender, albeit with more functionality. You can also purchase videos and music directly from iTunes with an appleTV. The caveat with appleTV is that you have to have what is considewred an hdtv to utilize it. I love mine.

    MediaShout currently only functions with specific video codecs and iTunes MPEG 4 derivative (the same used on Blu-Ray HD discs) is not currently compatible with MediaShout. Also, the DRM enforced by the movie companies is what is keeping you from burning the video out to a disc of some kind.

    You currently can’t burn a DVD from iTunes. I don’t know if they’ll ever add it or not. The problem is that it is also a protected video file, so MediaShout doesn’t like it. The problem with the camera trick mentioned above is you might get sync flickering. The only thing you can do is try it. Sorry I missed your Twitter today. I could have helped (or not helped) sooner. http://www.techtheology.com

    Technically, you’re not supposed to because of the agreement with Apple that you apparently agreed to when you either signed up for an account with them or purchased the video.
    You could still try something like tunebit, referenced in the previous comment, or go the route of buying an Apple TV (which I wouldn’t really recommend) or recording the monitor.
