MP4 (MPEG-4) is a very popular video format that is today used almost everywhere, from older mobile phones to the latest Blu-ray players. The format is so flexible that it can handle a large 4K video file as easily as a low-res mobile video. MP4 is also widely used on the internet so, if you download a music video or a TV series, you are most likely to find it in MP4 format. And what if you liked a song from the video so much that you wanted to listen to it on your portable player or mobile phone all day long? In this case, it’s best to extract the audio file and save it in MP3 – one of the most popular audio formats as well.
