Convert F4P to MOV online, for free.
F4P is a ubiquitous container format that is often referred to as “Flash Video.” It compresses multimedia files with a codec and facilitates delivery of the files as streaming audio and video over the Internet. Aside from one difference, F4P is the same format as F4V; except F4P files are protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM).
On most platforms, F4P files open in Adobe Flash Player by default. On Microsoft Windows OS, Adobe AIR might be the default player. For guaranteed results on Mac OS X, and Linux/Unix, open F4P files with VLC media player.
It is important to know that Apple iOS devices do not support the Adobe Flash Player plugin. However, Puffin Web Browser is a free option that can bypass iOS’s restrictions. Just always remember that the “P” in F4P stands for “protected.”

Apple QuickTime (MOV) is a container that can hold various types of multimedia files, including 3D and virtual reality (VR). It is known for being useful for saving multimedia files to a user’s device. One of its defining features is that it stores data in movie “atoms” and “tracks” that makes highly-specific editing of the files possible.
By default, a MOV file opens with QuickTime. If the MOV file is Version 2.0 or earlier, then it can open with Windows Media Player, but more-recent versions will not open in this player. If unable to open a MOV file with QuickTime, then use VLC media player, which works across many platforms, including mobile.
Note that two other file types also use the MOV extension. They are AutoCAD AutoFlix and ROSE Online. These file types are unrelated, with one being obsolete and the other related to an online game. Apple did not develop these technologies and they do not open in QuickTime.
