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. iTunes and Quicktime both use mp4 video compression.
A separate hint track is used to include streaming information in the file.
MPEG-4 is a patented collection of methods defining compression of audio
and visual (AV) digital data. It was introduced in late 1998 and designated
a standard for a group of audio and video coding formats and related technology
agreed upon by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) (ISO/IEC
JTC1/SC29/WG11) under the formal standard ISO/IEC 14496 - Coding of audio-visual
objects. The only official filename extension for MPEG-4 Part 14 files
is .mp4. MPEG-4 Part 14 is an instance of more general ISO/IEC 14496-12:2004
(MPEG-4 Part 12: ISO base media file format) which is directly based upon
QuickTime File Format. The start point design of the *.mp4 file format
was Apple's QuickTime file format. Having been improved in many ways, today
MPEG-4 differs markedly from its predecessor. MPEG-4 enables different
software and hardware developers to create multimedia objects possessing
better abilities of adaptability and flexibility to improve the quality
of such services and technologies as digital television, animation graphics,
the World Wide Web and their extensions. Some of these extensions are also
used by other formats based on ISO base media file format (e.g. 3GP). A
video compression standard planned for late 1998. MPEG-4 extends the earlier
MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 algorithms with synthesis of speech and video, fractal
compression, computer visualisation and artificial intelligence-based image
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. The purchase of Android by Google happened six years
ago, in 2005, and the first time it was distributed was in November 2007.
The unveiling was announced with the founding of the Open Handset Alliance,
which is a consortium of 80 IT companies working for mobile phones improvements.
Most of the code for Android was released by Google under the Apache License,
which makes Android licensed as free software. The OS is based on the Linux
kernel and is written with middleware, libraries and APIs in C language,
and includes Java-compatible libraries as well. Like the other very popular
OS on the market, Apple's iOS, Android has a large database of third-party
applications developed by independent programmers or companies, most of
them written in Java. Community releases often come pre-rooted and contain
modifications unsuitable for non-technical users, such as the ability to
overclock or over/undervolt the device's processor. The Android phone works
with an Android operating system, basic applications, and middleware. Linux
is the kernel-based, and written in the language C. Android and manages
applications that are written primarily in the Java language. There are
around 200000 applications developed for android with over 3 billion+ downloads.
Android relies on Linux version 2.6 for core system services such as security,
memory management, process management, network stack, and driver model.
For software development, Android provides Android SDK (Software development
