Convert M4V to WMA online, for free.
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.

Microsoft initially developed the Windows Media Audio (WMA) file format to compete with the MP3 file format. WMA is both an audio codec and audio format. WMA has evolved since its inception in 1999, with several updated versions: WMA Pro, WMA Lossless, and WMA Voice. It is a key component of Windows Media, which Microsoft discontinued.
As a key component of Windows Media, Windows Media Player supports WMA files and is usually the default program for opening these. Because of their relative ubiquity, however, many other players and programs support the file type. WMA files are also frequently used in online streaming.
Other programs that can open WMA files include VLC media player and UltraMixer. For mobile devices, try OverDrive Media Console, which has separate versions for Apple iOS, Google Android, and Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile.
