What is M4V file format

The M4V file type is Apple's version of the MP4 file type. The main differences are the DRM copy protection and AC3 audio files treatment, which are currently not standardized for MP4 containers.

This file format is used to encode movies, TV episodes or music videos found on the iTunes Store. You can only use a M4V file with the protection activated on an authorized computer with the account that was used to purchase the video or movie. This is because the files are protected with Apple's DRM Fairplay copy protection system. Other unprotected files may also be played by simply changing their extension from ".m4v" to the more common ".mp4".

M4V files can also be played on numerous other players, such as Media Player Classic, RealPlayer, Nero Showtime, DivX Plus Player or VLC Media Player. With DRM protection removed, the file can be used on webOS Video Player for Palm Pre and Palm Pixi smartphones. Android smartphones can also play the m4v files with its specific video player. The format is the default video file type for conversion in HandBrake and Air Video Server for Macintosh computers.
