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.
GIF Image Format GIF Converter
GIF stands for Graphical Interchange Format. Although traditionally still images, GIFs can also include short bursts of soundless animation. They will open in almost all image programs and on almost all devices. GIFs are raster images made up of pixels and containing up to 256 colours. To make GIFs easier to share, the image or animation is compressed with lossless compression, creating a smaller file size without noticeably affecting image quality. GIFs are often used on websites for animated objects and navigation buttons, and on social media to share video clips and animated images.
GIFs were developed in 1987. They were mostly replaced by JPG and PNG until they were integrated into messaging and social media apps and started being used for memes. Billions of animated GIFs are now sent between users or posted online every day. GIFs are big business and they’re widely used by advertisers and marketeers. Many film and TV companies produce and publish their own GIFs as part of their viral marketing strategies.
