How to Convert M4V to MP4 on Windows/Mac?

Why do we need to convert M4V video to MP4 format? How do I convert M4V files to MP4 for watching on the go? This article below will tell you the details to get it done.

 

Question: I have some .m4v files saved on my desktop that I want to be able to watch on my Droid phone. I downloaded HandBrake with the intention of converting the .m4v into .mp4 format which my Droid phone can play. When pointing HandBrake to the source file to convert on my computer (the saved .m4v), HandBrake comes back with "No Valid Source Found". I was under the impression HandBrake could convert .m4v into .mp4. Was I mistaken?

The DRM-protected M4V files ——

The M4V file format is a video container format developed by Apple and is very similar to the MP4 format. But M4V files may optionally be protected by DRM copy protection.

 

The widely used MP4 files ——


As above, maybe many of us have encountered the issues "can't play M4V files". To get DRM-free M4V files for enjoying, you need to remove DRM protection from iTunes m4v movies and convert M4V to playable MP4 format.


*.mp4 is a quite hot file extension, MP4 is widely used for saving media data and can be found in lots of places online or off line, which means, you may download MP4 videos from video sharing sites such as YouTube and Fox, or shared some MP4 videos from others, or freely play MP4 files on portable media players.

Easily and Quickly Convert M4V to MP4 format

Here ChewTune is highly recommended for its easy-to-use interface, straight workflow and reliable video quality. It can remove the DRM protection from iTunes downloaded video, and transfer it to various video formats including MP4 profiles within several clicks with great output quality and super fast speed. The Mac version is ChewTune for Mac


Now just download this software and follow the tips below to make your iTunes movies playable media players.

A command window will pop up during the installation to install specific audio driver, do not shut down and let it running until the installation completed.

How to convert iTunes DRM video to MP4 format?

Step 1. Add video and choose target format.

Drag and drop your videos to it directly, or you can click icon to import them as below.

Let's click the drop-down-list besides "Format" and choose "Common Video> H.264 Video(*.mp4)". 

Step 2. Customize target video specs.

Step 3. Start conversion.

In the meanwhile, it will start to record this video in MP4 real-time. The conversion time is equal to the video length itself; you can do other tasks during the converting the process.

Note: the system volume could turn off temporally during this period; no worries, do not touch it to get perfect DRM removed video.

After the conversion, click "Open output folder" to quick locate the converted video.
