What is MOV?
MOV is a video file format that was developed by Apple, for use in their QuickTime video player and editor. It’s compatible with many other players, however, and is a popular video file format. MOV is often compared to MP4 since they’re both so popular, but MOV files are usually larger and contain higher-quality resolution than MP4 videos. Most streaming platforms use MP4, however.
QuickTime isn’t the only player compatible with MOV. You can also play an MOV video with Windows Media Player, VLC, Adobe Premiere Rush, Blu-Ray Player for Mac and on Google Drive. MOV files can contain multiple tracks that hold video, audio, text and more.
What is MP3?
An MP3 is a digital audio file that’s compressed so it’s easy to store and transfer. It’s a lossy format, meaning it drops some of the audio’s sound when it’s compressed. Most of this dropped sound is inaudible when you play it back, however. MP3 files can be about one-tenth the size of lossless audio files, making them easy to share, store and play back on most devices.
