    I recently downloaded a video from iTunes. But when I try to play it with VLC media player, an error message pops up which said the file was not authorized to play with VLC. How to resolve it? VLC is my favorite media player on the computer.

    You're gonna have to play it through iTunes.
    Reason being is that the downloaded file is copy protected and VLC does not recognize it.
    If you want to play it in VLC, you're gonna have to remove the DRM Protection.

    Thanks for any help here. I have found the wonderful tool to help me crack the iTunes DRM. It's Tuneskit (Official: http://www.tuneskit.com). It will easily kill the iTunes DRM in iTunes videos and convert M4V to all common video formats, like MP4, MOV, AVI, FLV etc. I can play the movies everywhere now. Really cool! Of course, I will
    comply with rules and won't distribute the content to anyone else.
