Convert F4V to MOV online, for free.
Adobe Flash MP4 Multimedia (F4V) is a rather ubiquitous video container format because globally, most viewers of online videos use technology that is designed to play on Adobe Flash Player. In fact, F4V is often referred to as “Flash Video.” An F4V container compresses multimedia files with a codec and facilitates delivery of the files as streaming audio and video over the Internet.
On most platforms, F4V 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 F4V files with VLC media player.

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.
