What Is the Difference Between H.264 and MP4

H.264 is the world’s most widely adopted video compression codec, universally used to record, compress, and distribute high-quality video. Most of the high-definition videos on Blu-Rays, HD DVDs, and camcorders use H.264 encoding.

MP4, on the other hand, is a video container format that is used to host video, audio, and related metadata such as subtitles and still images. Like most modern container formats, MP4 is commonly used to host H.264 encoded videos.

Why Convert H.264 to MP4

These days, you won’t find many popular high-definition movies, TV shows, cartoons,  music videos, or any other video content that doesn’t use H.264 compression. But not all of it comes in MP4 format. It’s often packaged in other multimedia container formats like MOV, AVI, MKV, and AVCHD that take up a lot more storage space on your devices. So it’s always wise to convert H.264 to the smaller MP4 format to save space and get a better video experience.
