    M4V Wont play on Archos - How to convert?
    Hey, I downloaded a film via iTunes. It came downloaded in .m4v format.

    I transferred this over to my Archos, to watch it on T.V - but the file didn't play. I'm just wondering if anyone knows how I can convert the file to a playable format.

    Thanks.

    used to use a version of it for a password years back, that and a version of nadir. nepenthe just has such a great definition, it's not about becoming positive, it's about obliterating sorrow or the memory of it.

    While I am not sure whether the Archos can play m4v files or not, this is not the real issue. It's real issue is the DRM on every iTunes music, movie, or TV file (except the few iTunes Plus songs) you download from them.

    No different than MS's 'Plays for Sure' DRM or the new DRM they're using for the Zune.

    You want to play a file without cracking the DRM, you'll need a Mac, an iPod or an iPhone to play them.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
