What Is F4V Format?

There are two different video file formats known as Flash Video: FLV and F4V. Flash Video content may also be embedded within SWF files. F4V, based on the ISO base media file format, is similar to MP4 format. Starting with Flash Player 9 update 3, F4V is a standard format that is widely used to distribute dynamic media across the Internet. F4V files are actually container files that are used for the playback of certain media files. There are functional limits with the FLV structure when streaming H.264 or AAC which could not be overcome, so Adobe developed a new format, F4V.

F4V files support H.264, also known as MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding). H.264 is a video compression standard that offers significantly greater compression than its predecessors. F4V does not support some old video and audio codec in FLV format, like Screen, Sorenson Spark, VP6 video codecs and ADPCM, Nellymoser audio codecs.
