Windows Media Player is a digital media player developed by Microsoft and included with most versions of the Windows operation system. It is capable of playing many types of media and it is a program that you can use to watch DVDs, listen to CDs or music files. It is an excellent program, no doubt about it. However, it is not powerful enough to play nearly all video formats available. One of the file format that Windows Movie Player won't support is M4V files.

M4V files purchased or rented from iTunes Store are DRM-protected. They can't be played on non-Apple devices or services like Windows Media Player, VLC Media Player, Xbox, Plex, PS4, etc. To play iTunes movies in Windows Media Player, you just need to convert .m4v to its compatible videos formats like WMV, MP4, etc.
