  1. Hi everyone,

    I was browsing through files from my friend's external HD and kind of stuck with this video file KINM.m4v . The problem is that no player I got on my lappy is able to play this file.

    I got windows x64 , and players I got are MPC-HC x64 and VLAN VLC . I also installed VLC coded pack from this website "vlccodec.com" .

    GSPOT shows the following info when loaded with the file :

    Code:
    mp42: MP4 v2 [ISO 14496-14]
    - isom: MP4  Base Media v1 [IS0 14496-12:2003]
    - avc1: MP4 Base w/ AVC ext [ISO 14496-12:2005]
    MediaInfo shows the following info when loaded with the file :

    Code:
    Complete name                           : F:\mov\KINM.m4v
    Format                                   : MPEG-4
    Format profile                           : Base Media / Version 2
    Codec ID                                 : mp42
    File size                                : 1.83 GiB
    Since I'm newbie with all this I'm not sure how to change codecs (just point me to some online tutorial to save yourself from trouble ) in MPC and VLC etc.

    Please find the codecs installed list in the attachment. Thanks a lot

    It may be DRM copy protected. M4V format: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M4V

    But someone else here may have a better answer.

    And welcome to our forums.

    So eh, did you ask your friend about that video?

    VLC Media Player doesn't use external codecs.

    He doesn't remembers about the file either, so he doesn't have any problem with me trying to open that file

    I checked in the file property using details tab ( http://www.technipages.com/windows-how-to-check-if-a-video-or-music-file-is-drm-protected ), it's not drm protected

    Friends do let friends go through each others hard drives even if they haven't got clue what's on it.
    True friendship I suppose!
