MPEG-4 Video File
MP4 is one of the most popular formats for multimedia storage and distribution. It is a container for processing of wide data range, from text and graphics to sound tracks and video. Also it is able to support high-quality files, such as 3D-graphics or user’s menus. It is provided in two versions: MPV (for audio) and M4A (for video). A less known extension .mpr is being used for ringtones.
MP4 files may be played by a number of programs, including Adobe Flash, Roxio Creator, Nero Multimedia Sulte, and a default plug-in Windows Media Player. They are adapted for Mac OS and supplied by modern portable players.
MP4/MPEG-4 has been widely used since 2001. By its nature, it is similar with MP3 although more technically complex. It involves AAC coding method and complies with the standards of ISO/IEX 14496-1. Video and audio contained in a MP4 file is usually played in real time. Thanks to extra information (e.g. file name or images) it differs significantly from MPEG. Often it is impossible to embed data in such a file without use of separate streams that commentary tracks are integrated to.
Advanced Audio Coding
A proprietary format with lossy compression, which have been created as an alternative for MP3 with a higher quality of coding. Overtones out of human perception are being removed. AAC is two times less than MP3, which means 1/10 of CD digital data.
The format has being widely used since 1997 as the seventh release of MPEG-2 family. As it is supplied by hardware players, the format is highly demanded by music fans. It has been widely spread in Apple production and is being used by default in iTunes.
The format conception is similar to MP3, but it is more advanced. Being able to execute larger compression, it is represented as a separate segment of MPEG-4 standard which is used for creation of compact audio files. AAC is highly efficient with variable and continuous bitrate, with sampling frequency of 8-96 KHz.
The current version complies with the standard of ISO/IEC 14496-3. Compression is performed on the basis of auditory masking effect that provides with data reduction with no deterioration for sound quality.
