I need to burn the iTunes video I downloaded to a DVD that will play in a stand-alone DVD player. None of my traditional format converters will work because of the DRM coding. Does anyone know of a good (pref. free or low cost) software I can use to remove the DRM &/or convert to a different format with it? Thanks!

Removing DRM from a file is illegal, and any software designed to do that is also illegal.
This forum doesn't get involved with anything of that nature & you shouldn't be asking for such help here.

I'm sorry. You seem offended by my post. Did you notice that I was looking for information? Clearly working with this type of file is NOT my area of expertise, and if I was aware I was trying to do something illegal with it, I might have been a bit sneakier, don't you think? I didn't think it was a problem to want a video I paid for to play on a DVD player instead of a computer...just doesn't seem terribly illegal.
Thanks for your answer.

While the legality of this action is debatable, when you purchased the file on iTunes, you agreed to the limitations imposed by Apple's DRM. It is our policy to not help users circumvent Apple's (or any other company's) terms of use. The best recommendation we can offer is to buy the DVD of the movie. Some DVDs these days also come with a digital copy, so you can kill two birds with one stone with that.
