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
WEBM is a multimedia container used for both audio and video formats. It is open-source and royalty-free software due to this, it can be implemented and changed for improvement by any developer. It uses different codecs to compress files. For instance, for video streams compression it uses VP8 or VP9 video codecs and for audio streams, it uses Vorbis or Opus audio codecs. It provides videos of the highest quality and that too with real-time delivery. It provides users with the playback option on any device which is due to the low computational footprint. It is licensed under BSD(A family of acceptable free software licenses). Besides this, it has another project named as Webp for images.
Technical description
Its structure is based on the Matroska container. That is why it can support both multiplexing and de-multiplexing. It uses core technologies like HTML, HTTP and TCP/IP which can be easily implemented and this is the main reason for its success. VP8 and VP9 are highly efficient to provide video of the highest quality. It is cost-effective due to its greater efficiency for bandwidths. It is a substitute for H.264 and MPEG4 which are patented software and have copyright. Videos of this format allow playback but it is possible only in Android version 2.3 that is Gingerbread and above. When ‘Rockchip’ came into the market in 2001 it made possible the implementation of full hardware of 1080p. Also, LiVES video editor version 1.4.9 allows coding and deflating of videos in real-time.
