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

by Christine Smith • 2024-06-18 18:07:27 • Proven solutions

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 it and entering "Burn (name of the 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 an M4V movie to a DVD? -From Apple Forum

I have many M4V files on my iTunes library, and I want to enjoy them on DVD recorders and TV. But how can I burn M4V to DVD disc 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 players. 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 remove the DRM protection and burn it to DVD afterward via a piece of reliable third-party DVD maker software.

Here I highly recommend Wondershare UniConverter (originally 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 (Catalina supported) OS system. Wondershare UniConverter also provides free built-in video editor, video transitions and free DVD menu templates to retouch your videos in one click, aside from burning over 1000 video formats, like M4V, AVI, MPG, MP4, WMV, MOV, etc. to DVD at a thunder-fast speed based on excellent quality,
