What is an M4P (Apple iTunes Music Store) file?

Apple iTunes Music Store (M4P) file is an Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) file that protects its content with Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology. Essentially, Apple uses this file format to prevent unauthorized use of the music files that are available for download from the iTunes Music Store. The specific name of Apple’s DRM protection is “FairPlay,” which is precisely what protects the content in M4P files.

 

How to open an M4P file?

Since M4P files protect iTunes files, naturally the default program for opening them is iTunes. The cross-platform option, which includes all popular operating systems and mobile, is VLC media player.

 

On Windows, several other options are available, such as MediaMonkey, Winamp, and Helium Music Manager. On Mac OS X, QuickTime is a good option. If there is a problem playing the file on a device, then use Aimersoft DRM Media Converter for Windows to remove DRM protection.
