Then, let's know how to enable iTunes play the role of transmitter. Most of you are not about to pay iTunes' ridiculous prices to watch movies and TV shows you already own on Blu-ray. As we know, videos upon Blu-ray disc have been in high definition format, many are usually in .m2ts file extension that is not based on apple iTunes, while iTunes could only recognize video files in MP4, MOV, M4V that you can't play Blu-ray on iTunes directly and even not to speak of keeping multi-tracks.
