What is M4V?
The M4V format is used for MPEG-4 videos that are distributed through the
iTunes store. The format, with DRM removed, can also be played in the webOS
Video Player for use on the Palm Pre, Palm Pixi smartphones. However, unprotected
M4V files without AC3 audio may be recognized and played by other video
players by changing the file extension from ".m4v" to ".mp4".
The differences are the optional Apple's DRM copyright protection, and
the treatment of AC3 (Dolby Digital) audio which is not standardized for
the MP4 container. There are two definitions for the term M4V. The first
is that raw MPEG-4 Visual bitstreams are named .m4v. The second, and much
more likely, is that you have legally downloaded a video file from the
Apple iTunes store and it has the M4V extension. These files can be movies,
TV shows or music videos and all will include Apple's FairPlay DRM copyright
protection. To play a protected M4V file, your computer must be authorized
(using iTunes) with the account that was used to purchase the video. The
M4V is a standard format and is used on a variety of other products. It
can also be played with the BS Player Pro. To play a protected M4V file,
the computer needs to be authorized (using iTunes) with the account that
was used to purchase the video. Also, embedding it in the content of the
site allows greater visibility for the M4V video. Copy-protected M4V files
can only open on a computer, iPod or iPhone authorized by the account used
to purchase the file. However, you can view unprotected M4V files with
several different software applications. It is used as the default video
conversion format for HandBrake and Air Video Server on the Mac.
What is 3GP?
3GP is a multimedia container format defined by the Third Generation Partnership
Project (3GPP) for use on 3G mobile phones but can also be played on some
2G and 4G phones. A 3GP file is always big-endian, storing and transferring
the most significant bytes first. Most 3G capable mobile phones support
the playback and recording of video in 3GP format (memory, maximum filesize
for playback and recording, and resolution limits exist and vary). The
3GP file type is primarily associated with '3GPP'. Audio imported from
CD onto a PlayStation 3 when it is set to encode to the MPEG-4 AAC codec
will copy onto USB devices in the 3GP format. 3GPP file format was designed
for GSM-based Phones and may have the filename extension ".3gp".
3GPP allowed use of AMR and H.263 codecs in the ISO base media file format
(MPEG-4 Part 12), because 3GPP specified the usage of the Sample Entry
and template fields in the ISO base media file format as well as defining
new boxes to which codecs refer. When transferred to a computer, 3GP movies
can be viewed on Linux, Mac, and Windows platforms with MPlayer and VLC
media player. Programs such as Media Player Classic, K-Multimedia Player,
Totem, RealPlayer, QuickTime, and GOM Player can also be used. 3GP is defined
in the ETSI 3GPP technical specification. 3GPP is the new worldwide standards
for the creation, delivery and playback of multimedia over 3rd generation,
high-speed wireless networks. The MP4 and the AVC file format specifications
described usage of MPEG-4 content in the ISO base media file format. Some
cell phones use the .mp4 extension for 3GP video. 3GPP is based on the
MPEG-4 standard which was derived from Apple's QuickTime.
