As is known to everybody, the WMV videos purchased from Amazon store, including music, videos, movies, and TV show etc. are usually format type unsupported by the Google Nexus 5. The problem is, those WMV videos you downloaded from Amazon are protected (by DRM), and can't be played on any Android/Windows tablet except for the Amazon Kindle Fire (HD). So if you would like to transfer Amazon WMV videos to Nexus 5 for playback, you have to remove DRM from Amazon Instant Video and convert/record it to Nexus 5 compatible formats.

To do it, Pavtube ChewTune - a Amazon WMV to Nexus 5 recorder can do great help! Actually, it is nearly able to unlock all the DRM videos as long as your video is authorized and it's able to playback on this computer. (Here is its review) And the Mac version is ChewTune for Mac
