What Is M4V and How to Make It Playable Outside of iTunes?

How can you convert movies and TV shows downloaded from iTunes from M4V to MP4 yet knowing nothing about M4V?

The M4V file format is a video container format developed by Apple and is very similar to the MP4 format. And if you wish, you can simply change the extension from M4V to MP4 (media player supported associated format). The container format or we say the extension, won't affect a media player detecting the right audio/video codecs for decoding. So why on earth can't we playback iTunes M4V videos?

The key is that M4V files may optionally be protected by DRM copy protection. The fact of converting iTunes M4V to MP4 is that you are removing DRM protection.

Therefore, don't be suprised that your handbrake cannot make the M4V to MP4 playable and you are introduced to a bunch of DRM removal tools including Requiem, TunesKit, and DRM Wizard.

1. Convert M4V to MP4 on Mac using Requiem

The harsh fact about Requiem is that it only works with iTunes 9.0.2 or earlier and it is incompatible with Mac OS X 10.9 or above. Requiem upgrade has stopped since 2012.

2. Convert M4V to MP4 on Windows using TunesKit

A good thing about TunesKit is that it doesn't perform a re-encoding of the movie but just leaves unchanged the video and audio tracks by removing all DRM protection only. This means you can get a lossless M4V to MP4 conversion. The not-so-good part about this software is that it takes $49.95 with only the ability to remove DRM.

3. Convert M4V to MP4 using NoteBurner M4V Converter

This M4V Converter converts M4V differently from TunesKit since it gives you a 1:1 copy rather than just striping DRM from M4V file with original tracks retained. Quality loss is to some extent unavoidable. And its price does not get any cheaper than TunesKit, at $49.95 also.
