MXF is a multimedia container format designed for video to be packaged and edited. Such video material contains metadata, audio and video streams, which are encoded for various formats. The MXF extension was developed by the international company SMPTE, a market leader in cross-platform software and hardware solutions. The MXF extension, or Material Exchange Format File, is in most cases used by users who, as professionals, process, store and transmit video and audio information in the television and film industries. Professional camcorders use the same extension for recording. That's why the issue of playing MXF video is especially relevant. An MXF file is an output file when recording video / audio data from a TV tuner or some other hardware and software device. We are talking about devices whose purpose is to convert an analog signal to a digital one, and then process it. This is not to say that the MXF format is also in demand in terms of font in the SimCity 4 game program, which is a city-planning simulator. MXF is good first because it allows you to store multimedia data. Compression is possible, in fact, by any algorithm.
F4V is a well-known flash video format developed by Adobe System. It is supported by Adobe Flash Player. Currently, approximately 80% of online videos are transmitted using Adobe Flash technology. Files with the F4V extension are called a container format. The F4V format, in comparison with other files of the FLV category, uses boxes to store information. In addition to devices with an operating system from Apple, these files can play almost all browsers that support flash video playback. F4V files resemble .FLV files, but use “blocks” to store data. Examples of blocks that are supported by the F4V format include meta block (metadata), moov block (file header), ftyp block (requested player tools), uda block (user data in free form), etc. The format container, in the development of which the ISO Media File Format was used, initially used the Quick Time Container Format from Apple. Compared to the old FLV format, the F4V format is fully compatible with the h.264 and ACC formats. This provides an opportunity to use other container formats.
