With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask in the General Forum

How to convert M4V to MP4 ?

Post by drpeppercan » Tue Aug 22, 2017 2:25 pm

Please detail your question or problem in as much detail as possible:
I want to play these videos in a Samsung smart tv. The videos encoded in M4V won't play, but the one in MP4 does. Reason why I'm trying to convert them all to MP4.
However, I don't see an option in Handbrake for this. In the Destination section I only see MPEG-4 and Matroska. MPEG-4 does seem like MP4, but it yields a different extention (.m4v), hence I would not think this is what I'm looking for (is it?).

Tell us about your environment. What version of HandBrake? What version of Linux / Unix are you running. etc.
0.10.2 (x86_64) for Ubuntu Linux (16.04 LTS)

If there was any exception or error displayed, please copy it and paste it here:
N/A

Just rename it, they are the same.

Get the latest version and there should be an option in the preferences for this.
