    Hi

    .m4v file extension is missing from videos section, I suggest that this is added to the list of known video extensions in mediaportal configuration

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M4V

    The M4V file format is a video file format developed by Apple and is very close to the MP4 format. The differences are the optional Apple's DRM copyright protection, and the treatment of AC3 (Dolby Digital) audio which is not standardized for the MP4 container.
    Apple uses the M4V files to encode TV episodes, movies, and music videos in the iTunes Store. The copyright of M4V files may be protected by using Apple's FairPlay DRM copyright protection. To play a protected M4V file, the computer needs to be authorized (using iTunes) with the account that was used to purchase the video. However, unprotected M4V files without AC3 audio may be recognized and played by other video players by changing the file extension from ".m4v" to ".mp4". Under QuickTime, M4V video with FairPlay attached to it is identified as AVC0 Media.
    Besides Apple iTunes and Apple QuickTime Player, M4V files can also be opened and played with Media Player Classic, RealPlayer, VLC media player and Nero Showtime (included with Nero Multimedia Suite). The format, with DRM removed, can also be played in the webOS Video Player for use on the Palm Pre, Palm Pixi smartphones. It is also playable by the Android operating system with its video player. It can also be played with the BS Player Pro. It is used as the default video conversion format for HandBrake and Air Video Server on the Mac.

    Don't worry, the people that need to know will understand :D

    Basically MP needs to know what files are videos what files are pictures, what files are music etc, it does not by default recognise the m4v file extension.
