    Microsoft Surface Pro has a 1920*1080 display. It’s really good news for people who always take tablet as a portable media player. Based on its full HD screen, most of the 1080p movies will be showed in a perfect way. You may just plan to put your Blu-ray 1080p movies onto Surface Pro for playing, but, although Surface Pro is indeed a ultrabook, it can’t be connected to an external Blu-ray drive, so it’s impossible to play Blu-ray movies on Surface Pro directly.

    Here is a good solution to play movies on Microsoft Surface Pro. By hacking and converting Blu-ray/DVD movies to Surface Pro, in other words, change the Blu-ray DVD disc movies into digital files. What Surface Pro can read and play flawlessly. Then you can take them wherever you go. Below is the details.

    Required Software:
    Blu-ray Ripper for Surface Pro (Windows version)
    Mac Blu-ray Ripper for Surface Pro (Mac version)

    PS: The windows version works on Windows XP/2003/Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8. Mac version requires Mac OS X Leopard (10.5) or above.

    How-to: Rip Blu-ray DVDs for Surface Pro.

    Step 1. After installation. Run Blu-ray to Microsoft Surface RT Converter, click “Blu-ray disc” icon to load Blu-ray movie files directly from your Blu-ray disc via the BD drive. You can also import DVD movies.


    Step 2. Click “Format” bar, and select “Microsoft Surface Windows RT H.264 Video (*.mp4)”. as target format from “Windows” pull down menu.


    Step 3. You are allowed to click “Settings” button and go to “Profile Settings” windows to customize the video quality by adjusting video and audio settings.

    To get 1080p videos on Surface Pro. Refer to the following parameter.

    Codec: h264
    Size (pix):1920*1080
    Frame Rate (fps): original

    Sample Rate (hz):48000
    Channels: Stereo

    NOTE: The result movie quality mostly based on the original movie quality. So it’s not good thing to use the 1080p settings when the resolution of your original movie file is lower than 1080p.

    Step 4. Click “Convert” button to start converting Blu-ray movies to Microsoft Surface Pro. When finished, click “Open” button to get the resulted mp4 video. Then connect Surface Pro to your computer and transfer converted movies to the Windows 8 tablet for viewing.

    That’s all. Hope my article is really useful for you to watch Blu-ray 1080p movies on Surface Pro. If you like it, just share it or feedback in comments.

    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.


    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.


    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.
