Which Video Format Should I Use?


Which video format should I use for Youtube, movies, websites, burning DVD or anything will be the main topic for today. We will show you the proper use of different popular video formats for each use.


What are video formats

They are just the structure in which videos are stored in a computer file. When saving a file, it will be compressed to make the file smaller. And when you use it, it will be decompressed to show on your screen.

There are many ways to compress a file, thus, many formats.


Video formats to use for Youtube

MP4, FLV, MOV or AVI will be great to upload on Youtube and video sharing websites.


Video formats to watch HD movies

Highest quality formats such as MOV, AVI, and MKV will be a good choice. They are in higher quality, but will also use more space on your memory disk.


Video formats to burn onto DVD

MPEG-2 will be a great choice for this category. Many people also call it H.262.


Video formats for websites

If you want to make a video for your website, then WEBM or HTML5 have small sizes, easy to stream.


That's it. We hope that you like this tutorial and will make a good choice for whatever purpose you do.
