Convert M4R to MP4 online, for free.
Apple iPhone Ringtone (M4R) is the file format Apple uses to store ringtones on iPhones. The maximum length of an M4R file is 40 seconds. The only difference between M4R and MPEG 4 Audio (M4A) is the file extension, which lets an iPhone know M4R is a ringtone instead of a song.
As a format deployed by Apple for iPhone ringtones, M4R files open on iTunes by default.
Alternatively, Apple iOS is another good choice for opening M4R files. To create a custom ringtone, simply save an M4A file as an M4R file, and then import it into the iPhone.

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.
