Is MP4 high quality?


Even though MP4 is smaller in size, it can still retain high-quality resolution. This depends on the compression settings that you choose when you reduce the size of an MP4 file.

Is AVI larger than MP4?


While AVI is also a popular video format, it is much larger in file size than an MP4. If you want to compress your AVI files, you can convert them to MP4 using VEED’s video converter.

Is MPEG-4 the same as MP4?


No, they are not the same. It’s easy to confuse the two because it sounds like MP4 is just short for MPEG-4 but it’s more complex than that. MPEG-4 is a video codec—a program that compresses videos to manageable sizes, and MP4 is a container format. This means that it can ‘contain’ other tracks such as subtitle tracks, soundtracks, images, etc. 

MP4 does stand for MPEG-4 but it only applies to MPEG-4 Part 14 which has the .mp4 extension on its filename. It has become the most popular and most supported format, compatible with all media players.

How can I attach large or multiple MP4 files to emails?


When sending multiple or large MP4 files via email, you risk exceeding the file size limit which is 20 - 25MB in most cases. If you exceed this limit, your email will not send. It’s best to compress your MP4 videos using video compression tools.

Can I change bitrate, frames per second (FPS), resolution and CRF?


If you’re looking for a more advanced set of options, and you wish to control CRF, bitrate, resolution and FPS, then simply click on ‘Advanced Settings’. In this menu you will be able to adjust the video compression options to your exact specifications. Under ‘Resolution’ you will be able to choose from 480p, 720p, 1080p, 4k and more.

What they say
about VEED

Veed is a great piece of browser software with the best team I've ever seen.

Veed allows for subtitling, editing, effect/text encoding, and many more advanced features that other editors just can't compete with. The free version is wonderful, but the Pro version is beyond perfect. Keep in mind that this a browser editor we're talking about and the level of quality that Veed allows is stunning and a complete game changer at worst.

The Best & Most Easy to Use Simple Video Editing Software!

I had tried tons of other online editors on the market and been disappointed. With VEED I haven't experienced any issues with the videos I create on there.

It has everything I need in one place such as the progress bar for my 1-minute clips, auto transcriptions for all my video content, and custom fonts for consistency in my visual branding.
