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
MPG/MPEG is a file extension that uses MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 codecs for video and audio files. The lossy compression in this format leads to enhancement of the streaming and downloading speed. That is why it is very popular and widely accepted for movies. This format is compatible with both Mac/Macintosh and Windows including some other portable devices. The files that are encoded using this codec provide compressed data that has small size but the quality is not sacrificed at all. It just deletes or neglects the superfluous information that can not be noticed by the human ear. This lossy encoding takes less storage space to store data. Although this format is not efficient enough to provide excellent quality, yet, it is used most of the times due to its higher level of compatibility.
Technical description
The compressed ratio in digital video files under this format is 26:1 and for audio files it is 6:1.The bit rate in MPEG-1 is about 1.5 million bits per second and it is used to compress CD data., Besides this, MPEG-2 is designed especially for digital TV broadcast and DVD as it uses a bit rate above 4 million bits per second to compress both audios and videos. It should be noted that due to backwards compatibility with MPEG-1, video decoders have the ability to play a lower bit rate. It produces high quality of compressed files. Other uses of MPEG-2 is for Cable network, satellite and television stations; etc. Furthermore, it supports 5.1 multichannel audio.
