First, let’s see what video formats can be played on OneDrive
Though OneDrive enables us to upload videos in any formats, it only supports playback of a few formats. MP4, MOV and M4V videos are proved to be playable video formats on OneDrive in most web browsers.
Obviously, we cannot play video on OneDrive if the video file is excluded from the three file types. Mostly, the M4V files are downloaded from iTunes Store and they are most likely to be purchased or rented for enjoying. This kind of videos have DRM protections that prevents you from copying and transferring to other devices or programs for playing. They can only be played on Apple devices or authorized iTunes on 5 computers. So, by default, the DRM-protected iTunes M4V video cannot be played directly by OneDrive with any browser.
