DRM, short for Digital Rights Management, is a broad term used to describe a few techniques for restricting the free use and transfer of digital media like videos, movies, music files, games.
Apple uses M4V to encode video files, such as TV episodes, movies, and music videos, in its iTunes Store. The copyright of M4V files may be protected by using Apple's FairPlay DRM copy protection. To play a protected M4V file, the computer needs to be authorized (using iTunes) with the account that was used to purchase the video. You can play iTunes protected videos on iPhone, iPad, iPod and Apple TV. If you want to play them on non-apple devices, firstly you should get rid of the copy protection.
There are many methods of stripping DRM from iTunes M4V files. On Mac OS X, you can remove DRM protection from iTunes using the burn-and-rip method with the help of iTunes DRM removal programs.
