MOV is one of the most common multimedia file formats. It was developed by Apple Computer, compatible with Macintosh and Windows platforms. It was first used actively in the early 1990s after Apple launched its QuickTime Media Player, so it’s sometimes called QuickTime. At first, it was a unique format for audio and video data, but later its competitors such as AVI, AMV, FLV, Real Media appeared. MOV files are currently standard for storing movies and any other video.
3GPP is a multimedia file format that is primarily intended for storing audio and video files, as well as their transfer over 3G networks. This rather sophisticated technology was developed by the consortium Third (3rd) Generation Partnership Project, whose name gave the abbreviated name of this format (3GPP). The developer created this format so that the third generation of mobile phones can use smaller files. Another task is to unify the format of audio and video files for compatibility with various mobile devices. 3GPP files can be played not only on 3G phones, but also on 2G or 4G phones.
