Import movies to non-Apple devices from iTunes 12

Other than a new red dock icon—replacing the blue one first introduced in iTunes 10—that went without mention during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, the event came and went without any mention of an update to iTunes. Then, on Octorber 17, 2014, along with the OS X Yosemite, the official version of iTunes 12 popped up in the Mac App Store. While the app’s core remains pretty much the same as before, iTunes 12’s top control bar has been completely redesigned, now matching the look of iOS 7 and iOS 8 even more closely. So you may have a question: Is NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus compatible with iTunes 12?

Of course, the answer is yes! The latest versions of both NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus for Win and NoteBurner M4V Converter Plus for Mac work fine with iTunes 12.


New Features of iTunes 12:

New Look

While that’s all still there, the design is now much flatter. Instead of gradients and textures, there are just a few shades of gray: one for the background, another for the buttons, and a third for the search bar. The shapes are simpler, too. 

New Way to Access Your Content

In iTunes 11, different content categories are reached from a drop-down “Library” menu underneath the play controls. iTunes 12 changes that. Icons representing the different categories are now lined up in a row, right next to an icon that allows you to switch between the library on your Mac or PC and any computers you have set up through Home Sharing.

New “Get Info” Screen

One of the features of iTunes that’s seen the fewest changes over the years is the Get Info screen; this is the first time in iTunes’ history that it’s been totally redesigned. Right-click any piece of media, and it will appear as one of the options.


Somewhat confusingly, the list of iTunes-connected devices has become just one more icon—typically the shape of an iPhone or iPad—in the collection below the playback controls. Once you click on that icon, you’ll either be given a list of connected devices to select from, or taken straight to the new Device layout.
