About iTunes Video M4V – from Wikipedia
The M4V file format is a video file format developed by Apple and is very close to the MP4 format. The differences are the optional Apple’s DRM copyright protection, and the treatment of AC3 (Dolby Digital) audio which is not standardized for the MP4 container.
Apple uses the M4V files to encode TV episodes, movies, and music videos in the iTunes Store. The copyright of M4V files may be protected by using Apple’s FairPlay DRM copyright protection. To play a protected M4V file, the computer needs to be authorized (using iTunes) with the account that was used to purchase the video. However, unprotected M4V files without AC3 audio may be recognized and played by other video players by changing the file extension from “.m4v” to “.mp4”. Under QuickTime, M4V video with FairPlay attached to it is identified as AVC0 Media.
The iTunes Video Converter offers a way to get iTunes M4V video DRM free. Then you will be able to enjoy iTunes movies, TV shows and music videos beyond Apple environment, like on an Android tablet.
Please take note that you are only allowed to remove DRM from iTunes video using iTunes Video Converter for personal use only.
