Here, the video format is saved in H.264/H.253 codec, while audio is streamed in AAC-LC, HE-AAC v1, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, AMR-WB+, or Enhanced aacPlus.

M4A is a filename extension for AAC container format and is developed by Apple Inc. M4A music is bought on the iTunes Store and does not come with DRM protection. In terms of quality, M4A is better than MP3 because it is lossless but still compressed. This means that it occupies less storage space and doesn’t lose quality over time.
