Before transfer movies to USB Flash Drive, you will need to know what video format is supported by Sony PS4, only supported video format can be well played by PS4. From Sony PlayStation 4 official website we can know that MP4 video format is the only format supported by Sony PS4, once convert MKV to Sony PS4 MP4 format, we can play videos smoothly. The MKV, AVI, WMV, FLV, AVCHD, MTS, M4V, MOV files are all not supported by PS4, so if you have movies in these formats, the best way is to encode them to PS4 MP4 format.

To be honest, M4V videos are combined with fairplay DRM protection, it can be played on Apple devices only. If you want to enjoy all these videos on PS4 and other non-Apple devices, like Windows movie player, Android phone, Sony TV, etc. You may have to remove DRM protection at first. There is a professional DRM removal program named Media Converter for Mac free, it is designed to remove DRM protection and convert videos from M4V to MP4, MOV, MPG, FLV, AVI, M4V, MP3, etc with all audio tracks, subtitles at faster speed without hampering the quality.

PS can't support iTunes movies encoded with M4V. First of all, your purchased iTunes videos are encrypted by the FairPlay DRM technology, iTunes movies is not available in playing on PS 4. Therefore, if you want to play iTunes videos on PS 4, the first thing you should do is to remove DRM protection from iTunes movies and TV shows. There are so many tools for you to achieve this goal in the market, but I am using iTunes meida converter software, which is an easy-to-use but professional DRM removal tool and can help you remove iTunes M4V DRM legally and convert them to multiple formats quickly.
