Why Do We Convert M4V Files to MOV Files?

Both developed by Apple, M4V and MOV are two different video container formats. In most cases, M4V files are only recognized and opened by devices with iTunes, such as iPad, iPhone, iPod and other Apple devices. By contrast, MOV is more applicable because it’s not only intended for the QuickTime framework of Mac but also supported on the Windows platform. Besides, MOV is quite popular for distributing videos through the Internet. Therefore, you can try to convert M4V to MOV, if you want to open M4V files but have no Apple devices.

Note: Some M4V files are DRM protected. So, before converting M4V, you must verify whether the M4V video is DRM-protected or not. Only the DRM-free M4V video files can be converted to MOV or other formats. Circumventing the protected M4V files is illegal according to DMCA.
