gday I got given an itunes card for my last birthday so i bought some movies from the online store, im wondering is it possible to rip them from my itunes store to an avi file? Im sick of putting in my itunes account name to to load up my account information every time i open itunes then again to access store to watch my movies!

Cheers

Dont think so. Itunes movies are mp4 format. You could search your itunes folder in your documents, and find the file and convert it maybe...

You have to put in your itunes information? That's odd, I don't think I've ever had to do that after the initial download.

Ive found the movie files just in documents, seems i can just open them with quicktime so really problem solved, They wont play with vlc or any other player so i guess i can convert if need be

Cheers

Please don't use avi. It is a crappy format, it has bad feature support, and it's all but deprecated. Use mkv. And I'm pretty sure mp4 should play on vlc; I have done it before. Maybe it's the itunes store DRM...

I like avi. Its the easiest for me to convert to an mp4 format. I cant find a good mkv converter to save my life.

That looks like a DVD ripper. I need a regular converter.

It is a regular converter. The only conversion that it doesn't seem to want to do is from Blu-rays to mkv (or mp4, or any other video format); for Blu-ray, presumably because of the copy-protection, you need some other software. But for all other video it's pretty much unsurpassed.
