How to convert m4v to m4a?
iTunes Video File
|Description||The M4V format was developed by Apple and it is much more similar to the MP4 format with a slight difference in DRM protection. If M4V format has DRM protection than the iTunes account used to process the file will have to be authenticated on the computer playing the file.|
|Technical details||The M4V supported files have both the audio as well as the video data, the file extension M4V can be converted into the MP4 file extension in order for it to play on an unauthenticated computer because the M4V files are protected by Apple’s DRM. MP4 files do not provide with the functionality to create chapter information while M4V file does that.|

MPEG-4 Audio Layer
Apple Inc. has designed M4A format on the basis of QuickTime Fike. Now the format is being promoted in iTunes. It is a multimedia container intended for placement of sound components, as well as other data, such as images. MPEG-4 files may be stored with extensions M4A and MP4. In the latter case, they contain video as well.
Alongside these sound formats, MPEG-4 allows for lossy compaction, through FFC Codec. However, it is possible to provide a lossless compaction thanks to Apple Lossless format. The files may be played on Windows PCs via iTunes, Windows Media Player 12, KSP Sound Player, Winamp and some other programs. With iTunes, the data can be converted into Windows-supported audio formats.
In comparison with its predecessor MP3, M4A format provides with better sound quality and smaller file size. Thanks to lossless compaction, the data may be easily converted in both direction with no deterioration in quality. The sound data encoded with ACC compression, which reduces the file size considerably.
Due to protection technology DRM, MP4 files cannot be easily distributed, while it is much simpler to replicate files in M4A; that is why “Apple Lovers” prefer the latter format. With M4A, it is possible to buy music in iTunes, as well as download it into smartphones or other devices.
