 I got a video from a friend who has a MAC, and it was in this file format (M4V). I have tried VLC, Windows Media Player and Windows Live movie maker with no luck. Can someone please help me here in getting this video file to play on my Windows 7 64 bit PC?

 

Thanks

Have you tried QuickTime?  http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/

Oops, appears I spoke too soon  M4V is Apple's iTunes video format.  You'd need to have iTunes installed to view this type of file, and subsequently have your friend sign into iTunes to view the video.  More info on M4V can be found here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M4V

   I see VLC listed in the link you gave above, but I have tried this with no luck. How do I get VLC to work and play the M4V file?

I'm thinking it's apple's file protection.  Did this friend buy it from iTunes?
