MP4 Wiki: What is MP4, History, Features and Usage of MP4

December 8 2015 , Written by Bonnie Published on #the history of mp4, #usage of mp4, #convert mp4

Outline: Do you want to know more about MP4 and better enjoy them or edit with NLEs well? Come here, just your right place. 

MP4

The MP4 File Extension type is primarily associated with 'MPEG-4'. You often see BIFS associated with MPEG-4. BIFS stands for "Binary Format for Scenes". BIFS provides a complete framework for the presentation engine of MPEG-4 terminals. Play MP4 files with various players; just download the correct CODEC from the player's Website. 

History of MP4

The MP4 container format is based on the Apple Quicktime format, also known as .MOV. This format was first used back in 2001 as the ISO/IEC 14496-1:2001 standard, which was changed a few years later, in 2003 to the ISO/IEC 14496-14:2003 standard.

Due to the fact that both MP4 and MOV formats use the same MPEG-4 formats, they can easily work together in a QuickTime environment. However, MP4 is a highly more popular than MOV due tot he fact that it's distributed on other types of platforms as well, not only Macs. These include Windows, Linux and a multitude of mobile devices as well. You can find it on a PSP for example, but also on video players and Blu-Ray players as well. A small difference was introduced recently by the MOV format through the use of multichannel audio, whereas MP4 still lacks support for that, at least for the time being.

Feature of MP4

MP4 format is identical to Apple’s MOV container format. The International Organization of Standardization approved the MPEG-4 format specification was created on the basis of the MOV file specification released in 2001 but it formally specifies support to other MPEG-4 features and IOD(Initial Object Descriptors).

The standard extension for MPEG-4 Part 14 files is MP4 but the MPEG-4 files generally have other extensions involved in the “MP4 family”: M4A and M4P. MPEG-4 files with unencrypted audio-only streams use M4A extension and with encrypted by FairPlay DRM audios as were sold through the iTunes Store have M4P accordingly.

Different from most container formats, MP4 is able to store other data including subtitles, still images, object descriptors and scene descriptions.

Usage of MP4

First, as an online consumer, you can enjoy all sorts of movie shorts, professional and amateur, thanks to the use of this format. You can also often save these shorts to your hard drive, and share them with others via email. Some sites that make use of this streaming application also make it possible for you to send a copy of the movie short through email and directly to friends.

Secondely, MP4 format allows for streaming via the internet, which means the content can be watched in real time as it downloads as well as being saved on a hard drive. There are many portable MP4 players available, although the content can also be watched through hooking up to a television, one of the more novelty devices such as a watch or simply through your PC or laptop.

Thirdly, MP4 players are capable of playing the lower MP versions such as MPEG, which is the earlier video standard and MP3 (officially named MPEG-1 level 3) audio files. The format MP3 doesn't actually exist and is simply the file extension used for the standard! The file extension associated with MPEG-14 format is .mp4, although sometimes the extension .mp4a is used referring to audio content, or .mp4v, referring to video.

Finally, MP4 files are supported by various video player programs and hardware devices, like iTunes, iPods, iPhones, iPads (all versions), The KMPlayer, Media Player Classic, MPlayer, QuickTime Player, VLC media player, Windows Media Player 12, Microsoft Zune portable media player, XBMC Media Center.

Best Video Convert: Convert a MOV File to an MP4

December 1 2015 , Written by Bonnie

Description: The requirement of converting MOV to MP4 is becoming biger and biger. This post will tell you four methods of converting a MOV File to an MP4 on Mac and Windows.

There are several ways to convert a .mov to a mp4. But you cannot do it in regular quicktime. To convert your files, just follow these steps.

Method 1 of 4: Using a Free Web Tool

1.Know these tools are quick, easy and free but only usable for small files one at a time. One tool is Zamzar.com. You can simply upload your .mov file to Zamzar, and it will convert and email a link to the mp4 file.

2.Download the file to your hard drive. The file is stored for only one day

3. Consider the paid version. The free version works great for basic use. It will try to sell you advanced features. If you are a heavy user, you may want a paid version.
The paid version gives you more storage, faster conversions, and longer storage. It also removes the advertisements.

Method 2 of 4: Using Quicktime Pro

1.Purchase Quicktime Pro. Quicktime Pro is available to purchase from Apple; you may want it if you are a heavy editor of videos.

2.Download and install Quicktime Pro.

3.You can follow steps here to convert using Quicktime Pro.

Method 3 of 4: Using Amazon Web Services

1.Know that using Amazon Web Services is the fastest and cheapest way to convert large numbers of large files. It is also good if you want to set up a pipeline (where you are performing many large file transformations on an ongoing basis.).

2. Log into AWS. You can use your regular Amazon user name and password (the same one that you use to buy things) to log into AWS at: http://aws.amazon.com/

3. Create a Bucket to put the files you want to convert. A bucket is a place you can store a group of files, sort of like a file on a computer.
Go to console.aws.amazon.com/s3, and select "Create Bucket."
Upload your file(s) to the AWS Bucket you just created.

4.Go to the Amazon Elastic Transcoder. From Services, select "Elastic Transcoder."

5.Create a Pipeline. The pipeline is set up to help you translate many jobs. You should name it something like "convert my MOV to mp4."

6. Convert the file(s) by creating a job. The job is the actual file conversion, so this is the last step.

  • From the create a job menu, select your pipeline (that you just created)
  • Select the "input key" (the name of the file you want to convert from that pipeline)
  • Enter an "output key prefix" (if you want all of your files to have a prefix to their file names, like directory/name of file.) You will need to have a "/" in the key. This is optional.
  • Select the "preset" (which is the format you want the output to be in, the default is mp4 but you select the quality of the output, for example, 1080p.)
  • Choose an "output key" which is the file name you want.
