Description The M4V format was developed by Apple for Itunes Store 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.

Matroska Video File

File extension .mkv
File category video
Description MKV Matroska is an open-source multimedia container format that supports more than one audio and subtitle tracks in the same file. It is the most convenient file type where you can add a large sum of data, such as videos, audios, texts, and various images. It is a RAW format which you can later flip and separate based on needed data tracks.
Technical details Whether it is video, audio, subtitle, or image, every file will be stored in a separate data line. It is a lot similar to the MP4 or AVI format, although when users are packaging an MKV file, they rarely bundle all the tracks within the file. Various media players don't even support the MKV video format; therefore, the users need to use specialized media players who can help the MKV format, such as VLC media player.
