Overview
An MOV file format is a multimedia container which is used to store videos, text, images, subtitles and audios. Although, it was developed by Apple, yet, it can be used by both platforms i.e. Mac/Macintosh and Windows. Softwares that are meant for video editing especially use this format. To compress files, it uses MPEG-4 Codec. It should be noted that there is great similarity between MOV and MP4 files and they both support Apple’s QuickTime Player. But MP4 is based on international standards that is the main reason it is supported broadly. Additionally, it has the potential to abstract data references for the multimedia data. Also, it separates the media data from its offsets.
Technical description
MOV is extremely suitable for editing as there is no need to re-write data because it has the ability to import and edit in place. There are different media tracks in which data can code using distinct codecs. The data structure in tracks follow the hierarchy and they consist of atoms. An atom can either represent itself as a parent to other atoms or can have media or can edit the data. The older version of QuickTime supported only viewing of these files but the latest versions like QuickTime Pro both support editing and exporting that can be easily done by the user. ‘Passthrough’ option in this software allows clean exporting of audio and video streams to MP4. This form is an extended form of MPEG-4 PART-12.

Overview
The 3G2 format is an upgraded version of .3GP file and it functions to save both audio and video files in 3G phones which are based on CDMA (Code Division multiple access). By using this format, we can transfer files over the internet and can store videos on mobile phones. It consumes less storage space when compared to the 3GP file. Therefore, it helps to save the disk space. Also, this format is very good for mobile streaming and downloading as it supports bandwidth, which is easily compatible with 3G cell phones. Moreover, this is both ISO Base media file format MPEG-4 Part 12 and MP4 file format MPEG-4 Part 14. We can use various software to open these files. For example, Apple’s free QuickTime, VLC Media player; etc.
Technical description
It is a parallel format of MPEG-4 Part 14 or MP4 but a simplified version, not the complex one. This is the perfect format for 3G cell phones to store videos as low bandwidth is required and besides this, it takes less space to store videos. 3GPP2 can store similar video and audio streams as of 3GP and some additional streams as well. For instance- AMR-NB, AMR-WB, AMR-WB+, AAC-LC, HE-AAC v1, and HE-AAC v2. In addition to these aforesaid streams, EVR-C, EVRC-B, EVRC-WB, VMR-WB are other extra streams used in this format. MPEG-4 media is stored in 3G2 format using MP4 and AVC file format specifications.
