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.

 

How to open an M4V file?

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.

Matroska (MKV) is a free, open-source, container standard that can hold an unlimited amount of audiovisual and multimedia files in a single file format. Since it is open source, a user can customize it with open-source software. The name derives from “Matryoshka” dolls, which is a famous type of Russian handicraft that consists of a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size nested one inside another.

 

How to open an MKV file?

The best way to open an MKV file is to use VLC media player. This media player is compatible with all operating systems and platforms. This is important because MKV is not an industry standard, which means that other media players might not support it.

 

Additionally, MKV does not use codecs to compress file size, which means the file can be quite large. Therefore, another option for opening an MKV file is to download the appropriate codecs that are compatible with the selected media player. To accomplish this, download the Combined Community Codec Pack (CCCP) from a trusted site, such as Ninite.
