OPUS is an audio file that is encoded using the Ogg Opus format (lossy coding). It was created for online audio streaming, that is, in order to transmit sound through a global network. The format is being developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and Xiph.Org communities. Applies SILK codecs when used in Skype and CELT (from Xiph.Org), provides support for variable bitrate. Most often, the OPUS codec is used for video conferencing, game chats, VoIP telephony. OPUS is a free audio codec that has international standard status (IETF RFC 6716). Its main advantages are a low coding delay (from 2.5 to 60 ms) and its significant speed, an increased degree of compression of audio data with high-quality sound, as well as support for multi-channel audio (within 255 channels). In 2011, J. Skeglund of Google conducted two series of tests, during which OPUS coding and decoding were compared, taking into account the assessments of experts and ordinary listeners. Studies have shown that OPUS provides stereo music with the same quality as MP3 and better quality than G.719 64 kbps. OPUS offers great streaming capabilities with dynamic tweaking and very low latency. This is always high sound quality and excellent data compression. Full support for OPUS is provided by Mozilla applications. He is the key Skype audio codec.
VEP is a video editing project file. It does not contain a video recording, but only indications of what video clips to take and how to “dissect” them. She developed the VEP format, i.e. Video Editor Project, Online Media Technologies. Such files are created when you work with the program AVS Video Editor. This program provides the user with the ability to make their own videos or home videos. VEP files are responsible for keeping the timestamps of such videos. They also store a variety of reference data related to the video. Such data may contain information regarding both video data and audio data. VEP files use XML formatting, but they still have a few blocks of binary data that are encoded as text for sketching video and images. The VEP files created during the production of the AVS video file are located in the Content folder on the user's computer, and it, in turn, is located near the project folder. If you need to use the program AVS Video Editor, then note that all files to be edited must have the extension VEP. Once the video editing process is complete, you can convert it to its original format. You can also leave it in VEP format.
