- [Tom] In this video, we're going to take a look at one…of the formats that you'll be using…when you design your video experiences,…and that is the MP4 format.…So, let's start with an obvious question,…is MP4 a video format?…An obvious answer is, well, of course, Tom.…I watch MP4 videos all the time.…I hate to break it to you, but it isn't.…MP4 is a video container format,…though it is more commonly regarded as a file extension.…So, what's a container?…Instead of getting all technical,…think about buying a pair of Nike sneakers.…
On the box is that big Nike swoosh,…and you'd be correct in saying you bought a pair of Nikes.…If you open the box, there's a right shoe and a left shoe.…A video container is just like that shoebox,…only inside, you don't find shoes,…you find a video track and an audio track.…You can see what I'm talking about here in Premiere.…Notice there is a video layer and an audio layer.…When you compile the video into an MP4,…which uses the H.264 codec, the audio track…and the video track are compressed using separate video…
