What is MP4 video

Video files are large, which becomes a problem for uploading and hosting. If you don't need the highest resolution possible, a compact size will give you more quality and speed by reducing bandwidth, download times, buffering. Different codecs work with different algorithms and provide different file compression rates. Naturally, this also affects how your file will be displayed later, after compression, and how much disk space the file will take. MP4. This container format was developed by Motion Pictures Expert Group. Many users call it MPEG-4. Usually, video in MP4 files is encoded with the x.264 codec, and the audio is encoded with the AAC codec. Sometimes, there may be other codecs in this container. Video is a stream of data that forms a picture. The better it is, the more data is used for display. A video compression program may be required by professionals and amateurs, for constant use and one-time use.

How MP4 compression works

Because video takes up a lot of space and bandwidth is limited, video compression is used to reduce the file size. Compression involves packing the information of a file into a smaller space. It works through two different types of compression: lossy and lossless. Any video consists of many static pictures that replace each other every second during playback. This process is called video streaming. To compress it, you need to reduce the amount of data transmitted per unit of time (bitrate). You should also choose the appropriate resolution for comfortable playback. After all, if you watch a movie or TV series on a small screen (for example, on a computer), then you will not feel the difference in quality between 4K and Full HD. Although the size will differ at times. To optimize the video sequence without any loss, you need to overtake it from one codec to another. The optimal solution is MP4 with H264.
