If you have been using an iOS device to listen to your favorite music and watch your favorite videos then there's a high chance that all of your multimedia files are stored in iTunes. The disadvantage to having your files tied up with iTunes is that your choice of storage devices for your music and videos is very limited. By transferring your iTunes files to your android devices, you can have more versatility in handling your files and easily move past player compatibility issues.
Two Ways to Move iTunes Files to Android
Manually Move iTunes Files to Android
Fortunately, you can transfer your iTunes data to your Android phone with your Mac. First, you will need to plug your Android device to your computer. Depending on your USB settings and file transfer interface, you will need to put your device into MTP mode. On your computer, open up the library folder of iTunes. If you don't know how to access it, open your file explorer and go to Music->iTunes->iTunes Media->Music. You will then see all of your music and video files stored by iTunes. The next step is to copy all those video files and then paste them on the folder in your android device where you want the files to be stored.
