    If you wanna watch more 1080p/720p movies on your Surface RT or Pro Tablet, first you need to convert the videos like AVI, MKV, TiVo, VOB, MPG etc. to Microsoft Surface Tablet playable format like MP4, or WMV and then transfer them to your Tablet for playback.

    Finally, Microsoft unveiled its self-built Windows tablet – the ARM-powered Surface Windows RT. The Windows 8 based Surface Pro is coming soon. Featuring a 10.6-inch ClearType HD display, Microsoft Surface RT & Pro Tablet can bring you brand-new visual perception. However, if you have a glance on the main spec of Microsoft surface Tablets, it's easy to find that Windows 8 Tablet video format is limited as other tablets. Thus, if you wanna watch more 1080p/720p movies on your Surface RT or Pro Tablet, first you need to convert the videos like AVI, MKV, TiVo, VOB, MPG etc. to Microsoft Surface Tablet playable format like MP4, or WMV and then transfer them to your Tablet for playback.

    Remove DRM from iTunes M4V and Sync iTunes library to Surface RT and Pro

    This article will show you how to get music, movies or TV-shows purchased from iTunes to Microsoft Surface RT for smoothly playing.

    Q: I just bought a new Surface tablet and I am wondering if I could play music files I purchased on iTunes on my Surface RT? I have searched around the internet but I haven't got a specific answer to this question. Besides, the movies and TV-shows I have purchased on iTunes will be playable on my Surface RT?

    A: Before answering your question, keep in mind that the Windows RT based Surface tablet can not play any iTunes purchases with Apple Digital Rights Management (FairPlay DRM). However, all iTunes songs (at least in the US) will be DRM-free in steps since April 7, 2009. From my experience, if the song isn't copy protected it should play. For the little copyrighted iTunes songs, in .m4p format, you can upgrade these songs to DRM-free files for US$0.30/song or use DRM removal software to strip DRM from them free of charge.

    For iTunes videos, if they are video podcasts from iTunes, you can play them on your Surface RT without any problem. But if they are Movies, TV-shows or Music videos which you purchased directly through iTunes store, they are all with DRM protection. DRM can not stop you transferring iTunes video purchases to Surface RT, but the videos will say "this file is not supported" or "this video can't be played" when you play these iTunes movies/TV shows on the Surface RT tablet.

    In order to play iTunes video files on Microsoft Surface RT, you have to remove DRM from iTunes movies and convert iTunes M4V files to Surface RT compatible video formats(MP4 with H.264 video codec is highly recommended). To get the work done, a DRM Removal software is needed. If you're looking for ease-to-use, just check out Pavtube's ChewTune, which is an intuitive and stable DRM converter to help you remove DRM protection from iTunes, Amazon, Zune, BBC iPlayer, Napster, Blockbuster, etc. and convert videos to all popular video formats like MP4, MOV, MKV, WMV, AVI, FLV, etc. for playing and sharing anywhere you like. Meanwhile the playback of the converted videos is as decent as possible as original. The equivalent Mac version is the ChewTune Mac, which can convert and transfer iTunes movies to Surface RT on Mac OS X. Free download the right version and enjoy your iTunes M4V movies on Microsoft Surface RT without any hassle!

    Convert, Transfer and Play iTunes movies on Surface RT

    The quick start guide below uses ChewTune Windows screenshots. The way to encoding iTunes M4V to Surface on Mac is almost the same. Just make sure you get the right version according to your computer operating system.

    Step 1: Add iTunes movies to the software. Launch the DRM converter and click "Add Video" "Add Folder" to load the iTunes video files to the program for converting. You can also simply drag and drop media files to the source pane to add. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files.

    [​IMG]

    Step 2: Choose the output video format and output folder. Click "Format" bar and move mouse to "Windows" column, you can easily find the profile of "Microsoft Surface Windows RT H.264 Video (*.mp4)". The output videos could fit on Surface RT or Pro perfectly.

    [​IMG]

    If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. For watching videos on the Windows RT based Surface Tablet, 720p with 1500~2500kbps is just all right. I found that bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

    Step 3: After above steps, just click "Convert" to start removing iTunes DRM protection and converting iTunes M4V to Microsoft Surface RT MP4 videos.

    Once the process completes, download and transfer the DRM-free iTunes videos to your Surface RT Tablet via USB cable. Then you are free to enjoy and watch iTunes movies on Microsoft Surface RT as you like.

    And yes, this workaround works with Windows 8 as well, of course. Click here to get known the basic tips for watching movies on Microsoft Surface RT.

    Convert DVD ISO/IFO image files to Surface (Pro) 2 with multi-track MP4

    Description: The best solution to copy DVD IFO/ISO to Surface (Pro) 2 with multiple audio tracks so that you can free switch different languages while playback DVD movie on Surface (Pro) 2.

    What is an IFO file?

    IFO files are files that store DVD information. These files are commonly referred to as DVD Info Files because IFO files contain DVD scene and timing information.
    On a DVD-Video disc, there are two folders, AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS. In the VIDEO_TS folder, there are many files with the extensions .IFO, .BUP and .VOB. The .IFO files are simply information files; they have no video or audio data at all. They hold information on the VOB files, which are the actual MPEG-2 Video, Dolby Digital / DTS / PCM audio files. You don't particularly play an IFO file, but if you were to open an IFO file in certain software it would play the DVD or a certain set of VOB files.

    What is an ISO file?

    Think of an .iso as a container that holds all the files and folders contained on a CD/ DVD. Unlike a .zip file, an ISO is not compressed. ISO files are useful for keeping backups of CDs and DVDs and for storing the contents of CDs or DVDs on hard-drives or uploading and downloading them on the internet.

    You can play MP4/DivX/XviD/WMV/H.264/H.263 videos on Surface (Pro) 2, but DVD ISO/IFO files are not supported natively. What to do if you happen to have a large DVD collection and wish to enjoy DVD IFO/ISO image files on Surface (Pro) 2 anywhere?

    Don't want to loss video quality? Need to keep all the audio-tracks so that you can free switch languages while playback?

    Try this Pavtube ByteCopy. (Mac users can try this ByteCopy for Mac).
