Default Convert HD movies???

Hello guys,
I'm just wondering, is there any possibility to convert some HD movies I've just got from iTunes to other format to play them on Blu-ray? Should I use a special tool which can convert HD movies or any common tool which can convert audio or video formats?
I would like to see the movies I've just got from iTunes on TV and I would like to be in HD, too.....
Thanks for any help...

I would strongly suggest checking out the Doom9 forum,they have loads of information on video conversion there:

http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/software.htm

Incidentally,Moderators,this thread/topic should be moved to the Computers/HTPC sub forum as video conversion is within that realm

Well, this is not exactly the answer I wanted to see, because I didn't understand pretty much and as far as I could saw the HD tools from that list cannot convert the videos I have from iTunes store. Anyway, thanks for trying to help me and sorry I didn't posted in the right place.

Default Just what format are these files?

I don't use iTunes, nor anything Apple for that matter, and am curious just what format these downloads are in? There are a lot of coversion programs and editing programs available to convert just about anything. Is this a proprietary Apple format?

I'm pretty sure that Apple TV shows/movies are M4V. There's no easy way to convert them to something that can be watched outside of iTunes. I think the converters "watch" protected playback and save it in a different format. There are a couple of companies that offer software that will remove DRM from Apple formats: Tunebite and Daniusoft. I have no experience with either of them because I buy DVDs/BDs and rip them with eac3to, but if you need to remove DRM from your Apple movies check them out.

The videos from iTunes all have been encrypted. If you want to get out of the video, only legal method is capturing screent to video directly. You must find a find a tools which is very fast and can capture directx. I know there is a free tool E.M. Game Capture which can capture video in E.M. Total Video Converter.

Maybe can help you.

Well, I guess I found the answer, actually I even bought Tunebite Converter, indeed, it's a good software to remove DRM and also as far as I understood it's legal because it doesn't mess with protection by cracking it, just rerecords the original video.
Anyway, of course I've tried those tools, Total Video Converter unfortunately doesn't convert protected videos, so I had to choose between Daniusoft and Tunebite. I finally chose Tunebite because it has any other features than Daniusoft, it can also download music, videos and even movies. Didn't download movies yet, but I'll surely go for them..
Thank you so much for your help, guys...

I don't agree with you , you can use a m4v converter , that is so easy to converter the format 。

+1 for Andie608

I convert the movies and TV show my daughter gets for her Ipad to watch on the HTPC thru WMC. I use Super it is free and you can convert to just about any format and use just about any codecs.
