WAV, sometimes called WAV, is an audio container format developed by IBM and Microsoft and comes with a .wav filename extension. Unlike popular formats like MP3 and MP4, WAV isn’t a lossy format, so it’s bigger and less popular. WAV files can be opened on various OS platforms via software like Windows Media Player, MPlayer, VLC Media Player, and more.
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.
