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.

HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding), is a modern video compression standard developed as the successor to the standard H.264 (Advanced Video Coding). In comparison to H.264, this format offers up to 50% better data compression while providing improved video quality at a similar bitrate. Today, HEVC is used by over 40% of video developers, only second to AVC.
