Videos can be played using the M4V file type. It functions in a manner similar to MP4 video files. The well-known Apple firm created the M4V file format. The main distinction between the M4V and MP4 formats is that files with the M4V extension might include Apple’s Fairplay DRM security. The M4V video format is used for videos downloaded from iTunes. The iTunes account used to purchase the file will need to be authenticated on the computer in order to play M4V video files when DRM is not enabled.
Video and audio files with the M4V suffix may play both types of data. Since M4V files are DRM-protected by Apple’s DRM, the file extension can be changed from M4V to MP4 in order to be played from a different unauthenticated PC. When Apple’s DRM has not been applied to the file, it is an unusual occurrence. Additionally, M4V files have the ability to create chapter information, while MP4 files do not.
