    Why .m4v video files are not playing in my Samsung Note 2?

    Just yesterday got the new Samsung Note 2 and I have downloaded many movies from my iTunes which are paid so I copied those to the Note 2 but now it’s not able to play the .m4v video files at all. What should I do now? Is there any app which can help me to play the videos? Can you give me details about this?

    Hi friend,
    The M4V file is a video format is developed by Apple and it is very close to MP4 file...Apple Uses these M4V files to encode episodes,movies and music videos in the iTune store....So the M4V files have some copyright protection from the Apple...So android mobiles by default they cant access these files...

    But you can access the M4V files using some android apps
    1.V Player
    2.BS player
    3.VLC player
    4.HD video player

    Thank you!!!

    1)mx player
    2)double twist player
    3)video player codec,etc.

    Hello friend,


    I will help you to solve your problem,don't worry just follow as i say.

    You can play all the video formats in your phone.

    But you cannot play all those video formats with the default player which comes preinstalled with your phone.

    The pre-installed player has the capability to play only some formats of videos but not all.So you need to download the third party apps for this purpose.

    There are many apps available in the play store for this purpose they are.

    1.MX player.

    2.V player.

    3.HD player.

    4.Rock player.

    5.Mobo player.

    You just need to download any of the player and install it in your phone it will automatically detect all the videos and shows you in the menu.

    Hope it would help you.

    All the best.............

    The M4V file is developed by Apple Company and it is same look like as MP4 file. These files have some copyright protection from the Apple so android mobiles can’t access these files, to access you have to use some android apps like V Player, BS player, VLC player, HD video player etc.
