What is M4V?
The M4V video file is an MPEG-4 video format used on all Apple mobile products
(such as the iPod video, iTouch and iPhone). However, unprotected M4V files
without AC3 audio may be recognized and played by other video players by
changing the file extension from ".m4v" to ".mp4".
Embedding an M4V video in a site adds interest and draws visitors' attention.
To play a protected M4V file, your computer must be authorized (using iTunes)
with the account that was used to purchase the video. Although the format
is used by the Apple iTunes Store to distribute video, third-party videos
can be encoded as M4V files since it is an open format. It is used as the
default video conversion format for HandBrake and Air Video Server on the
Mac. The M4V video file can be embedded on a website in HTML code by using
the <video> tag. This tag, introduced in HTML5, makes it simple to
embed an M4V file. Also, embedding it in the content of the site allows
greater visibility for the M4V video. M4V is the common but non-standard
use of the MPEG-4 file extensions. It is due to the popularity of Apple's
iPod and the iTunes Store. Many video editors will save files as nonprotected
M4V files due to their high quality and relatively small file size. There
are two definitions for the term M4V. The first is that raw MPEG-4 Visual
bitstreams are named .m4v. The second, and much more likely, is that you
have legally downloaded a video file from the Apple iTunes store and it
has the M4V extension. These files can be movies, TV shows or music videos
and all will include Apple's FairPlay DRM copyright protection. Apple uses
the M4V files to encode TV episodes, movies, and music videos in the iTunes
What is MOV?
MOV is a file extension used by the QuickTime-wrapped files. The format
was created by Apple Computer to work with multimedia files. Of course,
compressing a MOV file can help save storage space and make it easier to
download and distribute the video file. Other file formats that QuickTime
supports natively (to varying degrees) include AIFF, WAV, DV-DIF, MP3,
and MPEG program stream. The advantage of MOV files is the ability to contain
abstract data references for the media data. That means that they can be
easily edited - no need to rewrite all media data after editing. Quicktime
is a multimedia development, storage, and playback technology from Apple.
These files will also play on video iPods, such as the iPod Touch. A .mov
video file is in the default format for all Mac computers. The .mov file
format is a common video file used by both Mac and PC computers. QuickTime
is an extensible multimedia framework developed by Apple Inc., capable
of handling various formats of digital video, picture, sound, panoramic
images, and interactivity. If you want to play MOV files on your computer,
you'll have to download Apple's own Quicktime player from its website.
Other media programs and digital devices, including Windows Media Player
and many digital cameras, also use the format to store video files. QuickTime
enables file compression by modifying video, effects and audio settings.
Quicktime files combine sound, text, animation, and video in a single file.
In order to play any .mov file, you must have QuickTime installed on your
computer. If you are using a Mac computer, you may already have the application.
If you would like to play the .mov file on your Window Media Player application,
you must download the QuickTime Alternative application.
