MOV (aka QuickTime) is a series of movie file formats and other formats developed by Apple Computer for using on Macs. QuickTime 7.1.1 can be used on Microsoft Windows, but all the previous versions of the format are Macintosh specific.
The .mov file itself is a multimedia container storing video, audio, text and other types of data in different tracks. QuickTime (MOV) is related to MPEG4 but has certain additional benefits (e.g., it works equally well with different stages of the video file's life, like capture, editing, archiving, distribution, and playback). But due to being Mac-specific, it's, of course, far less popular than MPEG or AVI, two widespread video file formats loved by file sharing communities. read more
