How to Convert M4V to MP4

M4V is a video file extension that is used by videos downloaded from the Apple iTunes video store. Because these files are proprietary, they are often not compatible with non-Apple products. You can, however, easily convert M4V files to MP4 files if you have the right software for the conversion.

Step

Download and install OJOsoft Total Video Converter (see Resources), which will allow you to convert M4V into MP4.

Step

Load the M4V file that you want to convert by clicking the "Browse" button on the right-hand side of the input text box and choosing the file from your file viewfinder.

Step

Select the output format you want to convert the file into. Choose the "To MP4" button located across the top of the application.

Step

Select the MP4 profile. There is a drop-down menu named "MP4 Profile" where you can select various quality settings. Higher-quality videos will take longer to convert, however.

Step

Convert the file by pressing the "Convert" button located in the right-hand side of the application.
