Sync Amazon Videos/Movies to iTunes for iPhone 5S/5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPod 5...

Amazon Store offers instant streaming on the Kindle Fire, as well as PC, Mac, Roku, and hundreds of TVs and Blu-ray players. All of your videos are stored in Your Video Library, so you can access them anywhere you go. Good news is that Amazon Instant Video is now playing on your iPad. Videos you've purchased or rented are already available on your iPad. However, you can not transfer Amazon Videos to iTunes for synchronizing with more iOS devices like iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPod 5, etc. The problem is that video files purchased from Amazon Instant Video are usually DRM-protected WMV (Windows Media Video) files. To sync Aamzon videos to iTunes, you may have to fix two things:

  1. Since DRM limited your use on iTunes, so you'll need to strip DRM from Amazon Videos so as to play them on more non-authorized devices.
  2. WMV is a not an iTunes-supported format. You'll need to convert it to either .mov, .mp4, or .m4v that is supported by iTunes.
