What is MP4?
MP4 is one of Multimedia containers which are for example the well known AVI (.avi), MPEG (.mpg, .mpeg), Matroska (.mkv, .mka), OGM (.ogm), Quicktime (.mov) or Realmedia (.rm, .rmvb).
MP4 is a file format specified as a part of the ISO/IEC MPEG-4 international standard. It is used to store media types defined by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group, and can be used to store other media types as well. It is, or will be, typically used to store data in files, though it will be used in data streams and possibly in other ways.
MP4 is streamable and supports all kinds of multimedia content (multiple audio-, video-, subtitlestreams, pictures, variable-framerates, -bitrates, -samplerates...) and advanced content (officially called "Rich Media" or "BIFS") like 2D and 3D animated graphics, user interactivity, DVD-like menus... - next to nothing handled by the often used AVI
Its such a pop multimedia format that could be played on most media players and portable video players.
When mentioned the portable video players, I would like to discuss with you whats your favorite MP4 portable players, like iPod, iRiver, or something else?
Well, I could find many such reviews out of there on the internet, for example like [url=http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/index.php/id;1039562914]Portable Media Players Buying Guide[/url], [url=http://www.mp4playerguide.com/]MP4 Player Guide[/url], or [url=http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/gadgets/funny-british-review-of-some-mp4-player-196544.php]Funny British Review of Some MP4 Player[/url]. Though more and more MP4 players crush into the market, I believe everyone will choose one out of his own stand.
Now that we have got a MP4 player, what will you put into it? I dont think there is anyone who would like to put away the MP4 player or let it be an item on display. Some do make it as a portable disk, but most which I think will use it to listen to music or watch movies.
So a question is coming that where to get the music or movie to put into my MP4 player?
The most direct and simple way is to find somewhere to download or buy the music or movie that could be put and played in my MP4 player. You could find many such resources through google.com, yahoo.com, and ask.com etc. Well some have another way to have the music and movies in the MP4 player. Yes, they make mp4 files themselves. How? Easy. You could find application like MP4 Converter or other tools. Google it and you will find amounts of such MP4 converter tools. Take website www.mp4converter.net as an example (which I often visit), there are many such conversion software like iPod video converter, DVD to iPod video converter that match Apple Video iPod player, and like MP4 Converter, DVD to MP4 converter that I guess may be made for other MP4 players. Oops, more Id say about www.mp4converter.net is that it provides this kind of MP4 converter software based on both Windows OS and Mac OS X. Like this, they would release MP4 converters that are respectively named as [url=http://www.mp4converter.net/mp4-converter-win.html] MP4 Converter for Windows[/url] and [url=http://www.mp4converter.net/mp4-converter-mac.html] MP4 Converter for Mac[/url].
OK, now maybe you would ask how to use these tools to convert your own audios or videos to .mp4 files. Well, here I dont think I could drop some lines to answer the question coz there are too many such tools with their own features. Use them according to the guide or product manual for them.
Well, I want to stop at here, and I want to hear more shared by you guys out of there.
