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.

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.
