What's a M4V File?

M4V is a video format created by Apple for network streaming and handheld devices like iPod, iPad, iPhone and PSP. It is a special type of MP4 format using file extension .m4v or .mp4. Its coding format is relatively simple. M4V uses H264 for video coding and AAC for audio coding. M4V can work with DRM copyright protection, which makes sure DRM-protected M4V files could only be played with licensed accounts or specified devices and applications. When purchasing or renting video from the iTunes store, you'll get M4V files.

With the development of network bandwidth and people's requirements for video quality, H264 is more and more used to encode video downloaded from the video websites. Compared to the traditional On2 VP6, H263, and Divx codec, H264 can achieve higher definition in a smaller size, which is why M4V with H264 codec is widely used by major video websites.

If you're failed to play a M4V file, it's probably DRM-protected. In such case, your Windows computer must be authorized using iTunes and the was used to purchase the video. Alternatively, use a DRM remover to remove the DRM from M4V files (not a good idea).
