Sometimes when I visit friends and don't have my Mac around I still would like to watch some of the movies I purchased on iTunes together with them. How do I do this? Can I share movies with others just as I can share Apps?

You can authorize up to five computers to use your iTunes account. If you have not used all five computers and you trust these friends, you could authorize their computer on your account, watch your movie, and then de-authorize the computer. In the time when their computer is authorized on your account, they would be able to make purchases using your account, however, so be careful.

I dont think this answer is correct. Even if I authorized another computer (of a friend) he needs to have my password to make purchases from the itunes store. However, the movies I bought can be watched (after authorization) without a password. –  user34425 Nov 9 '12 at 15:25
    
I have already used all five computers. –  bitbonk Feb 4 '13 at 10:41
