TIPS - Open M4V Files in Windows Media Player

Without a proper codec installed, you will see an error message like "The selected file has an extension (.m4v) that is not recognized by Windows Media Player..." followed by another message "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The player might not support the type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."

  • Go to www.download.com (by CNETS), search and download codec pack like "Windows Essential Codec Pack"
  • Choose "Advanced Installation", uncheck all boxes for "Install Babylon Toolbar..."
  • Uncheck the box "By clicking "Next"...", again this box is for another Apps you probably don't want. Press Next.
