"Here's everything you need to know about burning M4V to DVD on Mac. With just several steps you can easily convert M4V to DVD on Yosemite, Mavericks, Mountain Lion, etc." more >>
I created an m4v movie from a slideshow that I put together on iPhoto. I then burned it to a 4.7GB DVD disc by simply right-clicking the file and entering "Burn (name of file) to disc." The problem is the DVD will not play on my television.
With proper software and several clicks, the problem above can be easily solved. Stay focused and I will tell you everything you need to know in order to burn M4V movies to DVD on Mac.
The M4V file format is a video container format developed by Apple and is very similar to the MP4 format. But M4V files may optionally be protected by DRM copy protection. Apple uses M4V to encode video files, such as TV episodes, movies, and music videos, in its iTunes Store.
Therefore to burn protected M4V to DVD, you need to first remove DRM from M4V and then convert the DRM-free M4V files to DVD. M4V files from elsewhere are non-protected ones and can be recognized by a variety of non-Apple players, including VLC Media Player, Media Player Classic, RealPlayer, MPlayer and more.
