What does MP4 mean?
MP4 or MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding) is a compressed multimedia container format which simply means it can hold both video and audio files in smaller file size without major loss in quality. It is pretty much similar to mp3 except compression is much more complex. MP4 was developed by Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and was based on Apple’s QuickTime container format.
