Amazon Kindle Fire is one of the hottest tablets in the market now. Kindle Fire is another hot tablet compared with Apple iPad. More and more users are keen on adopting Kindle Fire as their entertainment devices due to its lower price, elegance appearance, decent design and more advantages. If you want to transfer your iTunes items, such as movies and music to Kindle Fire, you're in the right place. I would like to share the following tips and tricks with you:
Can I Play iTunes Video on Kindle Fire?
As far as you may know, iTunes videos and movies are divided into two types: 1) purchased iTunes videos and movies; 2) Non purchased iTunes videos or movies. The purchased iTunes videos or movies are protected by Apple's DRM technology and cannot be played on Kindle Fire. To remove DRM from iTunes video, you have to use the Windows version of iSkysoft Video Converter. The Mac version doesn't support DRM removal.
For DRM-free iTunes video files, they normally are saved in MP4, M4V or MOV format. While only MP4 format can be supported by Kindly Fire. It means that if your iTunes videos are in MOV format, you have to convert iTunes MOV to MP4 so that you can transfer converted iTunes video to Kindle Fire and directly play it on the device. To convert iTunes video to Kindle Fire format, what you need is a video converter like iSkysoft Video Converter for Mac. Go ahead to next section for iTunes to Kindle Fire conversion.

How to Transfer Music from iTunes to Kindle Fire
Music in iTunes is normally saved as MP3 format which is compatible with Kindle Fire. You may think that you can directly import this MP3 music from iTunes to Kindle Fire and enjoy it on Kindle Fire. It is not so simple. iTunes music has two different kinds:
- Music purchased from iTunes Store. For years ago, most of the songs in iTunes Store are DRM protected according to Apple’s terms, so it is impossible for you to play iTunes music with DRM protected on Kindle Fire. But now, Apple’s iTunes Store provides DRM-free music. And you are free to play the DRM-free iTunes music on Kindle Fire.
- Music non purchased from iTunes Store. iTunes music which is not purchased from iTunes Store is DRM-free music. While it doesn’t mean that you are free to transfer this music to your Kindly Fire and enjoy it on the device, since not all the music format from iTunes is compatible with Kindly Fire. For Example, if you have got some iTunes music in CAF, MOV, AIFF, etc., you need to convert the music format to the format that Kindle Fire supports. With the help of iSkysoft Video Converter for Mac, it is easy for you to convert iTunes music to Kindle Fire supported format. The instructions for converting iTunes music are the same with converting iTunes videos to Kindle Fire.
