m4v may optionally have DRM (Digital Rights Management) set.

If it doesn't, just change the file extension to .mp4.

Alternatively open it in Quicktime and resave it as a .mov file and change that to .mp4

I use Smart Converter Pro 2. The Free version is good and the paid version ($15) is amazing. It will convert any media to almost anything. It's great.
