How to download iTunes M4V videos to Nexus 7 on Mac

“I just purchased a Google Nexus 7 tablet and want to convert some of my iTunes videos to a format that was watchable on my Nexus 7. The converter software I tried was useless - the generated video was extremely pixelated and the audio was out of sync, getting worse and worse as the show went on. My videos were converted but to unwatchable garbage. I have a very long flight in a couple days and I want to watch these iTunes shows. Does anyone know a workable program to do this? I’m running Mac OS. Any suggestion is appreciated. Many thanks.”
