What is SWF?
Small Web Format
FutureWave Software, later Adobe Systems
SWF stands for Small Web Format and is owned by Adobe. Typically, SWFs are small files containing animated vector graphics data. It can be supplemented with text data and bitmaps. The SWF file type is often used to create banners, animations, and games. You may encounter some difficulties when trying to open SWFs, but browsers that support the Flash extension and the Adobe Flash Player software support playback of these files. Or you can try converting videos from SWF to a more standard format like MP4. To learn how to do this, read the information below.
The SWF file format is a binary multimedia format. Newer versions are capable of rendering text information, including bidirectional, and advanced scripts tagged with DefineFont4. Rich functionality provides support for JPEG images with alpha channel for areas of opacity and anti-aliasing filtering. Programmers can create files with SWF specifications using several Adobe programs, including Flash, Flash Builder, Adobe Animate, and After Effects.

What is M4V?
Apple created the M4V file type 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. Some apps allow playback of unprotected M4V files, though. If you have a Windows PC, you can use QuickTime, but many mobile devices don’t fully support M4V. To learn how to avoid compatibility problems, just look through this table.
Based on the MP4 multimedia container format, Apple placed a level of protection on M4V files to prevent unauthorized reproduction. Aside from Apple’s FairPlay DRM copyright protection, files in the M4V format use the H.264 codec, which allows devices to store chapter information. As for sound, M4V uses AC-3 and AAC audio codecs. You won’t be able to play copy-protected files with M4V specifications without authorization, but you may also come across unprotected M4V content. You can open these files using third-party programs by changing the file extension from .m4v to .mp4.
