The M4V file format was developed by Apple from the MP4 format. M4V is used to store movies, TV series, and music videos in the iTunes Store. Note that M4V files from the iTunes Store may be copy protected. Unprotected M4V files will play on a Windows computer if you have QuickTime installed, but many mobile devices don’t fully support M4V. To avoid these compatibility problems, just convert your M4V files to a more device-friendly format.
With Movavi Video Converter, you can convert video from M4V to MP4, AVI, WMV, MOV, MP3, and many other popular video and audio formats. Plus, the program can rip unprotected DVDs, i.e., convert VOB DVD files to other video formats.
