MP4 to WAV
Convert MP4 to WAV and other video formats to MP4 online, free
MP4 is one of the most compatible video file formats. You can upload MP4 files to YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites. You can also play MP4 files with Windows Media Player, VLC, QuickTime, iPhone, iPad, Android, and almost all media players.
MP4 files are popular because they can be viewed almost anywhere, and even with high-quality video, the file sizes remain relatively small, making them easy to share. MP4 is short for 'MPEG4', and is a format that normally contains video and audio, but can also be used to store images and subtitles.
WAV files store audio content "without" any compression. This makes them much larger than other file types. Although WAV files can take lots of space to store, they also store audio in high quality. This makes them useful for heavy-use audio storage like professional music recording. WAV files are widely used and can be opened on Windows Media Player, QuickTime Player, VLC, and many more. (The only exception is Linux).
WAV files may also appear as ‘WAVE’ in your folder. They are the same file type, just spelt differently. Developed jointly by Microsoft and IBM, the WAV format stores audio data, track numbers, sample rate and bit rate. Content is stored in segments of uncompressed "chunks".
