What is WAV?
Waveform Audio File Format
IBM and Microsoft
WAV is short for Waveform Audio File Format, which was created in 1991. Both Windows and Mac systems have native support for WAVs, so you won’t have any issues with how to open and play them. Files in the WAV format can contain compressed or uncompressed audio, but usually, they come without compression, so WAV files can be quite large. Uncompressed WAVs are useful for professionals who require the best sound playback quality.
The specification of the WAV file type is based on the RIFF specification. Both formats are containers for audio and store data in tagged “chunks.” Every “chunk” (or block) holds information about a part of a file, and, when creating a WAV, you can even leave some blocks empty to ease future sound editing. As for audio encoding, you can compress a .wav file with the MP3 or AAC codec, but WAV is mostly used for storing uncompressed audio.

What is MOV?
An MOV file is a video file in QuickTime File Format – a file container format created by Apple. The MOV file type is mainly used for playback on Apple devices. You can also play MOV videos on other devices if they support the codecs used in the file. If you’re wondering how to open an MOV file, see the list of associated programs below.
MOV files store video, audio, and text data in separate tracks. The video codecs used in MOV files are MPEG-4, H.264, MJPEG, Sorenson 1/3, AIC, ProRes, CineForm, and others. Audio codecs you can find in MOV files include AAC, AC3, MP3, and ALAC. The QuickTime File Format specification served as the basis for the MPEG-4 format.
