What is QT?
QuickTime File Format
QT is an extension of the QuickTime File Format (QTFF). QTFF, created by Apple in 1991, is a container format used by Apple’s mobile and desktop devices to store and play videos. Other devices can also play QT videos, if they support the video and audio codecs used by the format.
QT files just like other containers store video, audio and subtitles in separate tracks. The video codecs used in QT files are MPEG-4, H.264, MJPEG, Sorenson 1/3, AIC, ProRes, CineForm, and others. Audio codecs you can find in QT files include MP3, AC3, AAC, and ALAC.

What is GIF?
Graphics Interchange Format
GIF is one of the most common types of graphics, storing data in a format of no more than 256 colors. Compression occurs without loss of quality.
GIF animation works on the same principle as standard animation. The image file contains all the pictures involved in the animation. Each such picture is shown as a separate frame, for which such a characteristic is set as the display time until it changes to the next picture. In GIF animation, you can set the looping of the display of images. This image standard only supports an 8-bit palette, so only 256 colors can be used to display the image.
