Twitter is an American online social networking service on which users post and interact with messages known as “tweets” and it is also one of the ten most-visited websites. The Twitter current CEO accounced, by March 2018, Twitter had 336 million active users who tweeted 340 million times. Meanwhile, Twitter processes approximately 1.6 billon online search requests every day.
MOV is the video format of QuickTime, which is developed by Apple Inc. In the total 4 versions, the 4.0 version is provided with the best compression rate. That allows inter-frame compression and infra frame compression in 16-bit image depth, with over 10 frames per second. MOV has been accepted by many multi-media software, video editors and mainstream PC systems, such as Apple Mac OS and Microsoft Windows95/98/NT/2003/XP/VISTA/7/8/10, so it is a good choice to save videos in MOV format.
MP4 is the multi-media file used for saving audios, videos and subtitles. MPEG-4 is the main encoding format which is a set of compressed encoding standards for audios and videos. It is formulated by the moving picture expert group under International Organization for Standardization and International Electrotechnical Commission. In MPEG-4, macro block is no longer used as the standard for image analysis, but the individual changes in the videos are recorded. Therefore, tiny squares don’t occur in a MP4 file even the video images change quickly or the code rate is not sufficient. In addition, MP4 is accepted by more devices and software, such as mobile devices, vehicles and smart home.
Since MPEG-4 can be used in QuickTime and the MP4 container format, basically speaking, they can be exchanged in QuickTime. For example, in the MPEG-4 output process of QuickTime Pro, you can clearly output the MP4 file without effect on its audio or video if you select the tab [Passthrough].
