M4B is an audio filename extension for AAC format, which is developed by Apple Inc. It is mainly used on podcast and audiobook files. Typically, M4B files contain audio and other metadata like images, hyperlinks, and chapter markers. M4B files are DRM copy-protected and can be opened on Apple iTunes and QuickTime Player.
MP4 (MPEG-4 Part 14) is a video container format based on QuickTime MOV. But unlike MOV, it adds support for other MPEG features. MP4 supports video (MPEG-4 Part 2 and MPEG-4 Part 10/H.264), audio (MP3, AAC, SLS, TTSI, and ALAC), and subtitles (MPEG-4 timed text). It’s this codec combination that gives MP4 its flexibility.
