Understanding MP4 and WMV Formats

MP4 Format

MP4, which stands for MPEG-4 Part 14, is a digital multimedia container format most commonly used to store video and audio. It can also store other data such as subtitles and still images. The MP4 format is widely used due to its ability to compress files without a significant loss of quality, making it a great choice for streaming online videos and sharing on the internet.

WMV Format

WMV stands for Windows Media Video, and it's a series of video codecs and their corresponding video coding formats developed by Microsoft. It is part of the Windows Media framework. WMV is well-known for its ability to compress large video files while retaining considerably high quality. It's a common format for Windows-based systems and players.
