Overview
It stores multimedia data. It is commonly used by manufacturers (those produce mobile products) as well as by Apple for audio, video and still images. It offers higher flexibility and is compatible with both audio and video files. The Format provided by these files i.e MPEG-4 is commonly used online for streaming the videos. Any Movie, video or Audio file can be easily downloaded or streamed online with this extension which can be free or chargeable as well, such as downloading from iTunes. The payment can be made using credit or debit cards. These files may also include audio books, photos, podcasts, songs, movies, not making them limited to just audios and videos. This format has become more common as they are being used in iPod and PlayStation Portable(PSP). Commonly portable media players are advertised as “MP4 players” although they are capable of playing other media format as well like ‘AMV format'.
Technical description
MPEG-4 files are officially named under extension .mp4 and this is the only official extension for MPEG-4 PART-14 formats. These files were introduced in 2001 under the standards of ISO/IEX 14496-1:2001. It runs on AAC encoding which restricts the users from copying the data of the files. The data embedding can be done on these files using any private stream. For instance, hint tracks to add the streaming information into the file. These files are similar to most of the modern containers containing data information which allows internet streaming.

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.
