Freeing my movies from this itunes nightmare.

Okay, so I used to have an ipod, but I recently sold it and got myself an iriver clix (which, by the way, is way better than any ipod can ever hope to be). I got most of my music out of itunes by burning it to a cd, and ripping it into windows media player. The problem is arising with my movies. I cannot drag them out of itunes, and even though I finally found out where they were on my hard drive, nothing wants to convert them from .m4v to anything else. I really want my movies, as I was hoping to put them on my new player, and perhaps even burn a dvd. So, is there any way to do this?
