MOV

MOV file format is mainly associated with Apple and QuickTime. MOV is a file format that can hold several multimedia files such as virtual reality (VR) and 3D. Apple originally created the MOV file format and QuickTime Player - the compatible software for viewing MOV files. It's quite popular with music and video editors due to the way it stores data.

MP4

The MPEG-4 Part 14 format, better known as MP4, is a multimedia container used to store digital audio and video. It can store other kinds of data, like still images and subtitles.

Frequently Answered Questions

What's the difference between MOV and MP4?

The main distinction between MOV and MP4 is that the former is an Apple file format synonymous with QuickTime, and MP4 is an international file format standard. Another difference is that MOV files are often higher quality and larger in size compared to MP4, which are usually compressed and smaller in size.


How do I reduce the size of my MOV files?

Compressing your MOV file will only reduce its size by a fraction of what MP4 can do. The best way to reduce the size of your MOV files is to convert them to MP4 file format. You can convert them by using free online converters such as Convertr.org. The resulting MP4 file size will be one-tenth of the original MOV size, if not less.


Are MPEG4 and MP4 similar?

Technically, MPEG4 and MP4 are not the same. MPEG4 is a codec normally used to compress any audiovisual information for broadcasting media and online streaming purposes. On the other hand, MP4 is a file format that can contain and encoded MPEG4 video.


Is MOV compatible with Windows?

Yes, you can, but you must install a conversion program to convert MKV to MP4 using a Mac. Mac OS doesn't perform file conversions natively, and for that reason, the software is necessary.

But you can't avoid looking and installing new software using online converters like Convertr. Our platform is reliable, fast, and easy to use. It's free, and you can start using our tool once you enter the site!


Why doesn't my MOV file play?

There are mainly two reasons why your MOV file won't play. First, if the file lacks a video component such as a broken header or a missing EOF, it will not play on QuickTime.

Another reason why your MOV file won't play is because of a frozen frame. This happens when your file gets corrupted or interrupted while downloading.
