How to Repair Corrupted M4V Video File

What is a M4V Video Format?

Developed by Apple and nearly identical to the MP4 format, a file with the M4V file extension is an MPEG-4 Video file, or sometimes called an iTunes Video file.

M4V files may optionally be protected by DRM copy protection. Apple uses M4V to encode video files, such as TV episodes, movies, and music videos, in its iTunes Store. The copyright of M4V files may be protected by using Apple's FairPlay DRM copy 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 may be recognized and played by other video players by changing the file extension from ".m4v" to ".mp4".

These DRM protected M4V files can also be played directly on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that purchased the video. M4V files that are not protected with such restrictions can be opened in VLC, MPC-HC, Miro, QuickTime, MPlayer, Windows Media Player, and probably other media players. Google Drive supports the format as well. Handbrake-produced M4V files can also be played on the PlayStation 3, with full Dolby Digital 5.1 surround support.
