Hey guys this is probably a simple question but I can't figure it out. I have an old iTunes acct and want to dump it but I want to transfer all my movies, music and vids first. Now I transfer some videos just fine but some won't transfer, and my movies won't transfer at all? So what do I got to do?

I know that all iTunes movies are protected by DRM and can't be natively played on non-Apple devices/software. Their music was protected, but they stopped doing that a few years ago, so you might have a mixed bag there. I still use iTunes for the AirTunes remote speakers, so I haven't looked into it, but I'm sure there are some ways around this somewhere on the web.

As for your other videos, I'm guessing those were videos you got from other means than iTunes. I'm thinking that they are in a format your device/software doesn't support. You could look into other players to add that support.
