Windows Media Video (WMV) is a compressed video compression format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. The original video format, known as WMV, was original designed for Internet streaming applications, as a competitor to RealVideo. Through standardization from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SWPTE), WMV9 has gained adoption for physical-delivery formats such as HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
MP4 is an abbreviation for Moving Picture Expert Group-4. MPEG-4 or MP4 was designed to encompass all the features that were part of earlier releases of MPEG files and add a few more that would prove helpful with the advancing online technology of the day. As a standardized group of video and perceptual coding formats, MP in generally quickly became a hit with the average Internet user. The introduction of MP4 made it possible for the audience to continue growing by providing quicker, faster, and higher quality broadcast media for the average user.
