M2V files are MPEG-2 video files. They are exclusively used to store video footage, which means that they can’t contain any sound, music, subtitles, metadata or other content. This file type is rarely used on its own as not having audio is usually inconvenient – they are often paired with other files through software, for example, WAV files.
