This article would show you how to rip out the iTunes DRM and turn that copy-protected M4V file into a regular old MP4 via UkeySoft M4V Converter.

What is the difference between M4V and MP4?

M4V is a standard video file format developed by Apple Inc. It is a special type of MP4 format. All M4V files in the iTunes Store are protected by Apple's Fairplay DRM copyright, so iTunes movies/videos can only be played on authorized computers, iPads, iPhones and iPods. Editing, copying, or transferring iTunes M4V video is not feasible under this DRM encryption.

MP4, as a universal video format that is compatible with almost all media players in the market, is now widely used in our digital lives. Compared with the M4V, MP4 is more widely recognized. It can be played using various video players and hardware devices such as iTunes, iPod, iPhone, iPad, Android, Media Player Classic, VLC Media Player, PS4, Xbox, etc.

M4V to MP4? All iTunes videos, including movies, TV shows, and music videos, are DRM-protected M4V videos. Fairplay DRM copyright protection prevents you from playing these iTunes videos/movies on any unauthorized non-Apple device, such as Samsung phone, Android tablets, MP4, Windows Media Player, etc. The most effective way to jump out of this limit is to convert iTunes M4V movies to a common video format, like MP4. So here, I'll show you an effective way to convert DRM-locked iTunes M4V videos to MP4 for any device with just a few clicks.
