What is M4V?
M4V is a standard file format for the popular Apple iPod devices. M4V is
the common but non-standard use of the MPEG-4 file extensions. It is due
to the popularity of Apple's iPod and the iTunes Store. M4V files are video
files that are most commonly associated with Apple iTunes. If a file is
protected, unauthorized users may be unable to view, open, edit, delete
or otherwise access the file. The copyright of M4V files may be protected
by using Apple's FairPlay DRM copyright protection. Although the format
is used by the Apple iTunes Store to distribute video, third-party videos
can be encoded as M4V files since it is an open format. The M4V video file
can be embedded on a website in HTML code by using the <video> tag.
This tag, introduced in HTML5, makes it simple to embed an M4V file. 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". It is also playable by the Android operating system
with its video player. By embedding the video in your site rather than
linking to it, you ensure that you do not lose traffic from your site when
visitors follow the link. 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. Also, embedding it in the content
of the site allows greater visibility for the M4V video. 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.
What is Android?
Android was originally a Linux based operating system developed by Android
Inc. The Android operating system is open source, unlike Apple's secretive
code, Google has chosen to give away most of the code that powers Android.
Because the code is free to developers and manufacturers, it is very attractive
to device manufacturers who prefer to spend their resources on manufacturing
high quality devices instead of reinventing the wheel by creating a proprietary
operating systems. Confusion over Android memory management has resulted
in third-party task killers becoming popular on the Google Play store,
where users mistakenly believe that they are required to manage apps and
RAM themselves, similar to on a desktop operating system such as Windows.
Third-party Android task killers are generally regarded as doing more harm
than good. Android is a powerful Operating System supporting a large number
of applications in Smart Phones. These applications make life more comfortable
and advanced for the users. Hardwares that support Android are mainly based
on ARM architecture platform. Android is mainly powered up by hardware
from the ARM architecture. The Android-x86 project offers support for x86
and Google TV uses a special version of Android, working on x86 as well.
The first smartphone to use Android was HTC Dream, released in October
2008. Google collaborated with HTC for its first Android device, Google
Nexus One, while the 2010 version was made in collaboration with Samsung:
Google Nexus S. Android uses the Dalvik virtual machine with just-in-time
compilation to run Dalvik dex-code (Dalvik Executable), which is usually
translated from Java bytecode.
