MP4 Video Format

MP4 Converter

MP4, sometimes called MPEG4, is one of the most common video formats. MP4 was developed to be easily played and shared. It was originally developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) but has become an ISO standard, meaning that it’s now maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization. As MP4 is a standardised format, it will normally play easily on most devices and media players, including Windows Media Player, QuickTime, and VLC. MP4 is usually the preferred format for uploading videos to YouTube, Vimeo or other websites.

MP4 videos are made up of video and audio elements that are compressed separately. The video part is usually compressed with MPEG-4, and the audio is usually compressed using AAC, which is the audio format associated with iTunes. Because both file elements are compressed, MP4s normally have a smaller file size than many other video formats, but still maintain relatively high quality for sharing online.

3GP Video Format

3GP Converter

3GP is a video format created for storing and sharing video on 3G mobile phones. The format was developed by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in 2004. 3GP compresses video files so they can be easily shared over mobile networks, reducing the amount of mobile data needed to send and receive them, and saving memory space on the device.

3GP is still used in MMS messages, but now other formats like 3G2 are more common. This is partly due to a combination of the increase in Wi-Fi use and smartphone memory, the introduction of 4G and 5G, mobile phone companies offering unlimited data packages, and online messenger services like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger replacing many SMS/MMS conversations. 3G2 offers higher quality AAC+ audio than 3GP. However, most smartphones and some games consoles and devices will still play 3GP video files, and they can also be played by several media players including QuickTime, Windows Media Player and VLC.
