How to Convert M4V to DVD On Mac/Windows (Windows 10 Included)

I created an M4V movie from a slideshow that I put together on iPhoto. I then burned it to a 4.7 GB DVD disc by simply right-clicking the file and entering "Burn (name of file) to disc." The problem is the DVD will not play on my television or DVD player. Is there any other useful way to burn a M4V movie to a DVD? -From Apple Forum

I have a lot of M4V files on my iTunes library, I want to enjoy them on DVD recorders and on TV. But how can I burn M4V to DVD disk on Mac? -From Yahoo Answers

It's undoubtedly enjoyable for people to enjoy iTunes videos on big screen TV via DVD player, although iPhone,iPad, etc. are increasingly used as mobile player. However, M4V videos purchased from iTunes are protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM copy protection and can't be directly streamed to non-Apple devices. In that case, you can consider remove the DRM protection and burn it to DVD afterwards via a piece of reliable third-party DVD maker software.

Here I highly recommend Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate, a sound DVD creator that helps to quickly and easily burn M4V to DVD on both Windows (Windows 10 supported) and Mac (Mojave supported) OS system.
