M4V is a container video format that is exclusively for Apple products. It stores audiovisual and multimedia data into single file and uses a codec to compress file size. This results in a file that is easy to manage and store. While M4V files are very similar to MP4, they are designed for Apple products and Apple usually protects these files with FairPlay DRM.
M4V files open on Windows or Mac operating systems, in Apple iTunes for Windows and Apple iTunes for Mac, respectively. It is also possible to open M4V files in other media players, such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Media Player Classic, and several others.
Keep in mind that M4V is a container that holds various kinds of data, so if 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.

Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is a file format that shrinks an audio file’s size, which, as the word “lossless” in the name implies, results in no loss in audio quality or original data. FLAC accomplishes this by using an algorithm that compresses the file to approximately 50 to 70 percent of its original size.
The default program for opening a FLAC file is VLC media player. Other details about FLAC include that it is unpatented, permits music reproduction, is compatible with Telephony Application Programming Interface (TAPI), and is not subject to digital rights management (DRM).
Additionally, codecs that can implement FLAC include FFmpeg, Flake and FLACCL for encoding, and Audiocogs for decoding. Lastly, as the word “free” in the name suggests, FLAC is open-source software.
