What is MP4?
Movie or video clip that uses MPEG-4 compression, a standard developed
by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG); commonly used for sharing video
files on the Internet. MPEG-4 is still a developing standard and is divided
into a number of parts. The key parts to be aware of are MPEG-4 part 2
(including Advanced Simple Profile, used by codecs such as DivX, Xvid,
Nero Digital and 3ivx and by Quicktime 6) and MPEG-4 part 10 (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264
or Advanced Video Coding, used by the x264 encoder, by Nero Digital AVC,
by Quicktime 7, and by high-definition video media like Blu-ray Disc).
MP4 files are files that support both video and audio and are primarily
used as a file format to stream over the Internet. The registration authority
for code-points (identifier values) in "MP4 Family" files is
Apple Computer Inc. and it is named in Annex D (informative) in MPEG-4
Part 12. Companies promoting MPEG-4 compatibility do not always clearly
state which "part" level compatibility they are referring to.
The MP4 file format is used to compress large audio or video files into
a size that is small enough that it can be quickly downloaded. iTunes and
Quicktime both use mp4 video compression. MPEG-4 Part 14 revises and completely
replaces Clause 13 of ISO/IEC 14496-1 (MPEG-4 Part 1: Systems), in which
the file format for MPEG-4 content was previously specified. A separate
hint track is used to include streaming information in the file. A codec
builder to implement only the subset of the standard needed, while maintaining
interworking with other MPEG-4 devices that implement the same combination.
The MPEG-4 file format, version 1 was published in 2001 as ISO/IEC 14496-1:2001,
which is a revision of the MPEG-4 Part 1: Systems specification published
in 1999 (ISO/IEC 14496-1:1999).
What is 3GP?
3GP is a simplified version of the MPEG-4 Part 14 (MP4) container format,
designed to decrease storage and bandwidth requirements in order to accommodate
mobile phones. The 3GP file type is primarily associated with '3GPP'. Some
cell phones use the .mp4 extension for 3GP video. 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 is the new worldwide standards
for the creation, delivery and playback of multimedia over 3rd generation,
high-speed wireless networks. The 3GP file format was designed to decrease
storage and bandwidth requirements in order to accommodate mobile phones.
3GP is defined in the ETSI 3GPP technical specification. 3GPP is worldwide
standard 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. 3GPP file format was designed for GSM-based Phones and may
have the filename extension ".3gp". Some newer/higher-end phones
without 3G capabilities may also playback and record in this format (again,
with said limitations). The Macintosh type is: 3GPP. Designed as a multimedia
format for transmitting audio and video files between 3G cell phones and
over the Internet; commonly used by mobile phones that support video capture.
A 3GP file is always big-endian, storing and transferring the most significant
bytes first. The 3GP is used on 3G mobile phones but can also be played
on some 2G and 4G phones. These extensions were registered by the registration
authority for code-points in ISO base media file format ("MP4 Family"
