I want to convert itunes m4v video files to Coby's MTV format
If you're talking about m4v video files in general that's fine, but if you're talking about m4v video files you purchased from the iTunes Store, then you won't be able to convert them, because Apple uses DRM protection on them. At least they were, I haven't purchased any videos from the iTunes Store in a few years.
I can't find the software on the Coby site (which just loads a splash page and nothing else)
The company doesn't exist anymore.
I'm not finding anything safe that will convert to MTV somewhere else. Any ideas?
I was able to find several programs that claim to support the obscure MTV video format, but they are all from companies/devs I've never heard of (with the exception of "Online Media Technologies Ltd" which makes AVS Video Converter), nore have I tried any of these programs myself, so I cannot vouch for if they work or if they are safe. You'll have to take a look and decide for yourself. Perhaps you've already looked at these.
- http://www.iorgsoft.com/AMV-Converter/ (Doesn't state if m4v is supported.)
- http://www.apowersoft.com/amv-converter.html (Doesn't state if m4v is supported.)
- http://www.avs4you.com/AVS-Video-Converter.aspx?__c=1 (already suggested by Cecilia421)
I did find a free program called "Free Video Converter" made by freemake, which interested me enough that I downloaded it, but when I scanned the exe my antimalware flagged it as WS.SecurityRisk.3 and quarantined it. So I wouldn't suggest trying that one , which is why I didn't link to it.
I found a new Coby MP620-8GBLK 8GB on Amazon.com for $29.99 USD which is around the same price as all of these paid conversion programs. The product description states that it includes "Coby Media Manager software", which I'm assuming is the program you're refering to. Though at that point you're probably better just to get a new mp3 player from a different brand that uses a more common video format. Of course, as mentioned, all of this is a moot point if you're trying to convert DRM protected video.
EDIT: Just noticed this is a very old thread, sorry for reviving it.
