About the M4V Format

M4V is a video file format developed by Apple and is used to encode movies, videos, TV shows, etc. With the rising popularity of Apple's products like iPhone, iPad, iPod, iTunes, etc., M4V videos actually can be found everywhere.

Generally, M4V videos purchased from iTunes Store are protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM copy protection and can only be played on Apple products like iPhone, iPad, iPod, QuickTime, etc. with authorization. (To burn protected M4V to DVD, you need to first remove DRM from M4V and then convert the DRM-free M4V files to DVD.) M4V files from elsewhere are non-protected ones and can be recognized by a variety of non-Apple players, including VLC Media Player, Media Player Classic, RealPlayer, MPlayer and more.

So my issue is that once I burn it to a DVD and play it on my DVD player, it does not fit on the screen. It is stretched and no matter what setting I burn it with, or adjustment on the tv itself, the issue still remains. I have gone through a large pack of DVDs trying to find a solution to no avail. There is no other solution to this problem anywhere on the internet and I am quite frustrated.
Installed the program. Tried to import a movie. Right away got a message "not supported". Useless.

Yeah, you can save it as DVD folder or ISO image files.
M4V is ideal for iTune and Mac users. But if you are a Windows user this format could be easily transformed to a DVD format using Aimersoft DVD Creator without any problem.
iDVD has not been supported or sold by Apple since iLife '09. Apple discontinued bundling iDVD with their OS in early 2011. iLife '11 doesn't contain iDVD either.

This is probably a stupid question, but I was wondering if you could convert M4V to DVD and then save the DVD format on your hard drive instead of burning it, or would I have to burn it first and then maybe create a virtual disc of some kind?
