How to Edit iTunes music movie with Windows Movie Maker?
Q: Is there anyway that I could edit the downloaded iTunes music video movie and TV episode in Windows Movie Maker?
A: Theoretically no, since Windows Movie Maker WMM can’t recognize iTunes music video movie. But there is way to make it via 3rd party application.
As we all know that WMM supports editing .mp3 .wma .wav music and .wmv .avi .mpg video movie, while iTunes offers music in AAC (DRM-protected .m4p, non-DRM .m4a) and video movie in .mov or DRM-protected .m4v. Then there’re jobs (removing DRM and converting formats) need to be done before editing iTunes music video movie in WMM.

Step 1: Free download this DRM Removal Software, install and run it as the most application software.
Step 2: Then go to the main window to “Add” or drag-drop source files. The “Settings” board offers various output setting function as output format, bit rate, frame rate, etc, you can customize the target files’ profile at will.
Step 3: After finishing the output setting, back to the main window, click “Start” to begin the conversion process. Duration depends on source files size.
2. Edit iTunes downloaded music video movie TV episode in Windows Movie Maker

NOTE: Many folks ask how to convert Windows Movie Maker file (*.MSWMM) to other video format, while actually .MSWMM file is not a video format. It is a temporary project file of Movie Maker (more like a record file). Just open this file in Windows Movie Maker and save it to your computer --- Go to Movie Tasks bar > Finish Movie > Save to my computer. Then you will have a WMV file which can be converted to another video format or burned to DVD.
