Technical details The technical details of MP4 files differ in great aspect and are unique as well, first released in 2001 under ISO/IEX 14496-1:2001 standards, it uses an AAC encoding to wear off unauthorized users from copying the data. The main purpose is the streaming rather than sending video or audio information. MP4 files can be used to store audio streams and, in addition, text information, subtitles and still images while MPEG format can’t do this, anyhow the processing of data into MPEG-4 part 14 requires the use of private streams such as the use of hint tracks to include the information.
