Convert F4P to MP4 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.”

MPEG-4 (MP4) is a container video format that can store multimedia data, usually audio and video. It is compatible with a wide range of devices and operating systems, using a codec to compress file size, resulting in a file that is easy to manage and store. It is also a popular video format for streaming over the Internet, such as on YouTube. Many consider MP4 to be one of the best video formats available today.
MP4 files open in the operating system's default video player. Simply double-clicking the file opens it. There is no need for third-party software. On Windows, it opens in Windows Media Player. On Mac, it opens in QuickTime.
On some devices, particularly mobile, opening this file type can be problematic. MP4 is a container that contains various kinds of data, so when there is a problem opening the file, it usually means that data in the container (an audio or video codec) is not compatible with the device’s OS. To resolve this issue, try VLC media player.
