Frequently Asked Questions about converting M4V to text

  • What is an M4V File?

    M4V is a file extension of a proprietary digital video format developed by Apple Inc. for use with its QuickTime media player software and services. The M4V format was introduced in 2005 as an alternative to the MP4 standard, originally developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG).

    The M4V format supports both high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) video content, as well as Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound tracks and other features such as subtitling. M4V files are typically used to store video material purchased or rented from the iTunes Store or other digital media sources available through Apple’s iTunes application program interface (API).

  • How do you play a M4V file?

    The easiest way to play M4V videos is via iTunes or QuickTime Player. However, if you want to play your media on a different platform like Android or Windows Phone then you’ll need third-party software like VLC Media Player or Plex that supports this format.
