    Unless the video is copyright protected the android should play *.m4v files.

    If the video file is not DRM protected, just rename the extension from m4v to mp4

    Are discussions regarding stripping DRM allowed?

    All that thread is talking about is conversion between files and the use of certain softwares such as Handbrake to do so. I don't see any mention or step-by-step guide on stripping DRM protection (and no, I don't think they are allowed on the forums).
