What is M4V?
M4V is also called MP4-AVC, it is a video container format developed by Apple. M4V is very similar to MP4, it is a special form of MP4 with the extension .m4v or mp4. M4V adopts HD 264 or HD 264/AVC as its video encoder and AAC for its audio encoder. Compared with On2 VP6 H263 Divx, it is of better quality but relatively smaller size. That is why M4V is widely supported on iPod, iPhone, and PlayStation Portable.
What is FLV?
FLV, full name Flash Video, is a container file format used to deliver video over the Internet using Adobe Flash Player 6 or newer. Quite a number of users of FLV are from YouTube, Hulu, VEVO, Yahoo!Video, matacafe, Reuter.com and many others are news providers. You might wonder why? Good question. This is sure not an accident. FLV is a standard for web-based streaming video (overRTMP). It embedded videos into Flash animations with Flash Player, which means, the visitors of the website will be able to watch FLV videos as long as they are able to watch Flash animations without any extra plug-in.
FLV files are about 1/3 the size of regular videos, for example. A one minute high quality FLV videos is about 1MB while the size of the movie is about 100MB. With its small size, highly quality and less CPU space, it is popular for on line videos. So you can find abundant videos from the internet, even "homemade" ones.
