Hello. I have recently repaired my friends laptop by way of installing Xubuntu (Ubuntu with the XFCE4 Desktop Environment.) And everything (with a few fixed niches) has worked out semi flawlessly. I am having one issue though. I can't play or decrypt a .M4V video file (bought from iTunes). I just want to know, is there some command i overlooked, or does Xubuntu just not support it? And yes, I have Xubuntu Restricted Extras and I ran some command to allow me to play DVDs. I can't even convert the file on my Mac through a program called Evom, as i get the error: Failed. Can't get resampling context. I tried Evom to convert the file from M4V to AVI. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

--Thanks!!!

You should try Linux Mint. Everything works out of the box with it. :thumbsup:
