    I bought some MLB games (3+ hours long) from the iTunes store, and I've tried (with no success) to convert them to .avi format so they will work with ManyCam, since the program only allows you to play AVI, MPEG, MPG, AND WMV. I've tried putting them on a DVD, but that didn't work either. Is there some way to convert these to one of the italicized formats above, or am I out of luck?

    I'll start by saying that I don't use iTunes.

    With that said, most content purchased through iTunes has DRM. I don't know that it can (legally) be converted to another format as the process usually removed the DRM. In any case, there are numerous conversion tools available. Give Freemake a shot and see what happens: http://www.freemake.com/free_video_converter/

    It didn't work, and to make things worse, it deleted all but three of my Chrome extensions.

    if the m4v movie were purchased through iTunes they may have a DRM attached, apple don't allow you convert it to other format
