How to cast iTunes movies/TV shows to Chromecast


As a movie ******, most of you will choose to purchase or rent movies and TV episodes from iTunes, one of the most popular online media stores providing hot music, movies, TV shows, etc. However, to iTunes fans' disappointment, iTunes store is not an available channel in Chromecast yet. As is well known, that's because Tunes videos with M4V format purchased and rented are encrypted by Apple's FairPlay DRM technology. In result, iTunes movies are not permitted to play on any other non-Apple devices, such as Chromecast, the most popular media streaming box. Besides, the M4V format of iTunes movies is not a compatible format with Chromecast which supports MP4 and WebM only. However, you don't need to be upset at all. Here in this post we'll introduce an easy solution for you to sync your DRM-protected iTunes videos to Chromecast for watching on HDTV sets.

Part 1. Best Tool to Strip DRM from iTunes Movies/TV Shows

First of all, we need the help of a powerful yet easy-to-use iTunes DRM removal tool with which we can easily and completely remove the DRM protection from iTunes movies and TV episodes. When it comes to a high-performance and all-featured iTunes DRM cracker that preserves 1:1 original quality of the HD movies, DRM M4V Converter for Mac could be the best choice. With this smart DRM removal application for iTunes, you can get rid of DRM protection from any iTunes videos, including the purchased and rented movies, TV shows, iTunes Extras as well as music videos without touching the original video and audio tracks. It keeps the AC3 5.1 audio, CC, audio descriptions, subtitles for the HD 1080P/720P and SD iTunes movies and convert M4V videos to MP4 and other formats supported by Chromecast. It's fully compatible with the latest iTunes as well.

Step 1. Import iTunes M4V Movie Downloads to DRmare

Then a drop-down menu will appear allowing you choose the iTunes movie content you want to stream to Chromecast from your iTunes library. Click "OK" and the videos will be loaded automatically to the converter. You are also allowed to add the iTunes M4V movies by drag-and-drop.

Step 2. Customize Output Format

To Cast iTunes movies and TV shows to Chromecast, you are suggested to choose the output format as "Lossless MP4" from the profile list. The quality of the output iTunes video will be exactly the same with the original file. All ausio tracks including the AC3 5.1 sound, AD, CC, and subtitles will be retained. Or you can choose HD MP4 which lets you customize the video parameters, including video codec, size, bit rate, frame rate, all according to your own needs.

Step 3. Start to Convert iTunes M4V Videos

Hi James, I´l do my best to help you out.
I take it that you are using Chrome browser to watch Netlix.
If that is the case, then go tot he Chrome webstore, and look for Cast (it should give you various options), choose the one from Google.
One install in Chrome, reboot your Chromecast. Try it with YouTube first, if it works, it should work with Netflix. Both, PC and Chromecast must be on the same network.
