MOV Video Format MOV Converter
MOV is a video file format that was designed for Apple’s QuickTime Movie Player. MOV files are container files that can include video (usually with the MPEG-4 codec) and audio, as well as metadata including subtitles, text, time stamps and pictures. MOV uses ‘lossy’ compression and it’s optimised for streaming, sharing or storing on mobile devices.
Although MP4 has become an ISO open standard format for videos, MOV is also a very common video type, especially as it’s often the default format for iPhones and iPads to record video in. MOV files can be played by most media players, and you can usually import and edit MOV files with iMovie, QuickTime, VLC, or with Adobe Express, as well as with a few other video editors. You can also upload MOV files to YouTube and most social channels without any problems.
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.
