Description A MOV file is simply an Apple QuickTime Movie file and is Apple’s propriety video file format. Like other popular multimedia file formats it is able to store almost all types of data including audio, video and also allows text in the form of meta data which allows for fancy menus, subtitles, and information about scenes and actors to be displayed on screen. MOV files tend to be small in size which is part of the reason they’re so popular and part of the reason Apple made them their go to video format.

Technical Details MOV files use the MPEG-4 codec for compression which means they’re able to be both highly compressed but they are also able to be high quality files. Apple designed their own application to play MOV files which is known as The Apple QuickTime Player and is still widely used today. MOV files can still be played on other applications including the VLC player or Microsoft’s Media Player which makes it a popular format as it’s universal.

mp3 MP3 (Audio)

File extension .mp3
Category Audio File
Description MP3 files are a part of the public’s lexicon as they’ve been popular now for four decades and in that time have often been the go to audio file format of choice for users. The main reason for this is they are around ten percent of the size of an uncompressed audio file format such as a .WAV. Even though they’re a tenth of the size their quality almost matches that of an uncompressed format and so became increasingly popular when we listened to music on the move and storage was at such a premium.

Technical Details MP3 files are different to MOV in that they support audio only whereas a MOV file is a multimedia file format. Both use MPEG compression but the MOV file uses MPEG-4 whilst the MP3, unsurprisingly, uses MPEG-3 compression. An MP3 file’s quality will depend on the bit rate that has been used to compress it with a higher bit rate resulting in a better quality of file. The MP3 file paved the way for compressed file formats and it’s only recently they’ve been surpassed by other, more efficient formats that include Apple’s .M4A.
