MP4 vs H.264
MP4 is a multimedia container format standard specified as a part of MPEG-4. MPEG-4 files with audio and video generally use the standard .mp4 extension. It is most commonly used to store digital video and digital audio streams.
H.264 is a standard for video compression, and is currently one of the most commonly used formats for the recording, compression, and distribution of high definition video. H.264 is popular for Blu-ray Discs, and popular devices like iPod, iPad, iPhone, etc.
- 1. H.264 is a new standard for video compression which has more advanced compression methods than the basic MPEG-4 compression.
