264 Video Format 264 Converter
The 264/H.264 format was developed in the early 2000s for video files, and is now widely used. It’s an open standard recognised by ISO’s Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). The H.264 format uses H.264 encoding to compress video while maintaining high picture quality, making it ideal for both streaming of video at low bit rates and also for local HD video. You’ll find this format used for HDTV broadcasting, professional video production, and video-sharing sites like YouTube and Vimeo. H.264 is also often used for closed-circuit television (CCTV) or IP camera systems.
While 264 is a common video format, the files can’t be played by all media players. However, you should be able to open this type of file using File Viewer Plus or VLC media player - you may need to install an additional codec pack for VLC first, though. The types of CCTV cameras recording H.264 video normally come with their own software that lets you play the footage, and possibly edit or convert it into another format.
AVI Video Format AVI Converter
AVI is a common type of video file, which Microsoft developed for Windows and launched in 1992. AVI is short for Audio Video Interleave, and like many other video formats, AVI files are container files that include both video and audio in different codecs. AVI files are compressed but to a lesser extent than some other video formats; this means they tend to have higher quality video but may also have a larger file size.
Although MP4 is probably the most common video format and an ISO standard, AVI files are also widely supported and can be played by numerous media players, including Windows Media Player, QuickTime, VLC and MPlayer. If you are having problems playing an AVI file, you may need to convert it to another format like MP4 first, or you may be able to play it by first installing an additional codec for your media player. AVI is one of the formats that can be used to upload videos to YouTube or Vimeo, and social media sites like TikTok, Instagram and Facebook also support AVI videos.
