iTunes Music and Video
Can somebody give me a simple, easy solution to get my iTunes Music and Videos ported over to the Xoom?
1. Getting already purchased music and video from iTunes into the Xoom.
2. Where do most people get videos for the Xoom?
3. I keep reading about the Xoom, and the processors inability to play HD video, can somebody explain this in more detail, and is there a solution?
Thanks in Advance.

Most music sold on iTunes no longer has DRM, so its just a matter of using something like Doubletwist or iSync to transfer your music and playlists onto the Xoom.
Video sold on iTunes is a lot more complicated. Most of that has DRM and you have to remove it somehow or the videos wont play on the Xoom. A lot of people use Noteburner ($40-$50) with success. It's legal to use it on content you have purchased.
If you own a DVD collection, you can use handbrake(free) to rip the DVD for playback on your device, but you'll have to tinker with the settings. There are other posts here where users have had success.

Bottom line, there is no *simple* way to get purchased iTunes content onto the Xoom (with the exception of music that doesn't have DRM).
Anything else (like video, audiobooks)will require conversion/re-encoding using purchased third party programs. You'll have to do this each time you buy something on iTunes that you want to watch on a Xoom.
If you are expecting it to function like an iPad where you just plug it in to your computer and iTunes content simply transfers over--you're in for a lot of frustration.
