Part 3. More Information about MP4 and H.264

MPEG-4 or MP4 is a popular digital multimedia container format which has been developed by the International Organization for Standardization. This format is generally used to store audio and video, but can even be used for storing the subtitles. It also allows streaming on the web like most of the container file formats. A number of portable media players are advertised as the MP4 players.

H.264 is also called as MPEG-4 Part 10 , which is created to supersede the MPEG-2 to maintain the video quality and keep the bitrate down. This makes the H.264 format better for portable devices. In some cases, the bitrate can be achieved as low as 50%. It is often used for streaming the videos and Blu-Ray movies because H.264 can deliver a great video quality as well as low bitrates. This means that the video will be comparatively smaller in size and better in quality. But, to process these files, you must have reliable video accelerators like Joyoshare.
