Q1: digital copies of movies in your Surface

has anyone tried transferring digital copies into your Surface?

I have a few that I’d like to copy but they are DRM protected in iTunes.

I tried the trial version of Aimersoft DRM Converter (standard mp4 and HD mp4) in 16:9 ratio but upon viewing the sample on the Surface, the quality is blurry.

if anyone has had success in getting your movies in good quality, please share some tips.

Q2: how do I transfer my PC based digital copies to my surface

Obviously I no longer want to play movies on or even get my laptop out while traveling. My surface is THE device for use in the air so how do I transfer my legally obtained digital copies from my PC. Please don’t suggest ripping the movies because I am so sick of trying to get the lame apps that perform this function to work properly (I’m on my second app and still getting artifacts and mismatched sound) besides I own these copies so I should be able to move them right? As you can probably tell I am pretty frustrated by this. I love the surface and this should be a no brainer because my digital copies are wmv files.

Problem source:

The Surface RT lacks the functionality required for handling the DRM.

As for converting your movies, I’m not sure if this makes you feel better about the idea, but I actually have a Surface RT, i am also a tablet lover, likes to collect all kinds of tablets. I’ve been using it with my own movies (obviously converted with my own software) since release day without playback issues, you can have a try.

Click “settings” button to adjust the output parameters of the video/audio. Remember the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. Below is the best video format for Microsoft Surface RT Tablet per my experience:

The supported resolution of Microsoft Surface goes up to 1080p, though video playback and most apps never break out of 720p. For watching videos on the tablet, 720p is just all right. Because I find that bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

Mac users Note: Mac user solution as above

After the conversion, click “Find Target” to locate the DRM-free Digital Copy movie file and transfer them to your Microsoft Surface tablet with ease.
