Run the M4V video editing software and click Import to add the M4V files you'd like to edit to the program. Alternatively, you can directly drag M4V videos to the Media zone to load them. The added files will be displayed in thumbnails and you can have a preview of them.

Important: This M4V editor can only edit iTunes videos (M4V) that are not protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM. If your M4V videos are purchased from iTunes Store, then they are probably locked and you will need to first remove DRM from M4V before editing M4V files.

2Edit M4V video files

Aimersoft Video Editor provides multiple editing panels to fully meet your different editing requirements. You can crop M4V to remove black margins, split large M4V files into smaller clips, trim M4V to get rid of the unwanted portions, join some other M4V clips into the original one, rotate M4V to get the right position, remove the original sound tracks from M4V videos, add background music to videos, apply special movie filter effects to M4V, etc. Moreover, some advanced video editing features like PIP effects, Intro/Credits, Texts, Flash and Hold, Face Off, Tilt-Shift, Mosaic, etc. are provided to help you create a hollywood-like movie.

Just like what has been mentioned above, you are able to transform the edited M4V video right straight to any kind of formats like MP4, MOV, AVI, WMV, MKV, FLV, etc. If you want to upload the videos into your mobile devices for playback on the go, just pick out the corresponding device name from the submenu of Device list. If you'd like to share the video online with more people, you can now enter your YouTube account info and directly upload it to YouTube.

A friend did my slideshow and I hate to bother him to edit it. It has 5 songs with it...if I edit several pics by totally deleting them, what happens to the song that is being played with those pictures? I don''t want to lose the songs...Is there a way to change to increase the time each of the remaining pictures are on the screen without changing the background song?

Hi, LZ Crom. If you want to remove some unwanted scenes from the video, you can split it into pieces and then delete the target segments. If you want to eraser a certain area in the picture of the video, you can crop the video or apply mosaic. To apply mosaic, you can drag the clip to the timeline panel and then right click on the thumbnail and choose Power Tool. In the pop-up window, you can click the Mosaic tab and then tick Apply mosaic to the clip. If you have questions, please contact us again.

Thank you*!

Hi, I was wondering if there is any way to use like an "eraser" tool in this editor? (Or if you know of a different one) To erase out parts of a video without throwing out entire frames? I have a video that has gotten messed up after being saved and transferred a few times (originally made in Flash which now no one has a copy of that file) so it leaves outlines in many of the frames and I would like to be able to get rid of them... thank!

Does the editor support full Apple TV 3 HD resolution (1080)? Can you save edited .m4v files in the original m4v format including any existing iTunes tags?

Hello, Drew Thompson. That's probably because that the TV show you purchased from iTunes was protected by iTunes DRM. Take advantage of Aimersoft DRM Removal to get rid of DRM protection. http://www.aimersoft.com/itunes-drm/remove-drm-from-itunes.html

How exactly can you remove that protection? I tried to import a purchased TV show from itunes into M4V editor and the application dumped into an error - Said the format is not supported. This is a description of the file Im working with: AAC (protected), Stereo (L R), 48.000 kHz AVC0 Media, 1280 × 720, Millions

Hello, if you want to remove DRM protection, you can use Aimersoft DRM Media Converter which will help to remove the DRM.

how do you make the files be unprotected. It seems kind of frustrating to purchase stuff and not ever be able to do anything with it.
