AVI and MP4 are two most commonly used video formats in our digital life. I guess most people are familiar with these two formats but not everyone knows well about them. Now, let’s take a general view of AVI and MP4. Maybe you can get what you want from this article.
Firstly, let’s talk something about AVI format. AVI is a multimedia container format introduced by Microsoft in November 1992 as part of its Video for Windows technology. As a container format, AVI files contain both audio and video data in a file container that allows synchronous audio-with-video playback. AVI uses a lossy compression method to the video files. As the compression rate is relatively high, so the video image quality is not very good. What’s more, AVI is in large size which takes much space of the hard disc. However, because AVI was introduced early, it has wide application from that time on. But you should know that AVI has several code ways. It seems a little complicated.
Then it comes to MP4. MP4 is a multimedia container format standard specified as a part of MPEG-4. It is most commonly used to store digital video and digital audio streams, especially those defined by MPEG, but can also be used to store other data such as subtitles and still images. Compared with AVI, MP4 has better video quality but it is in smaller size. MP4 can used in various devices and applications.
