A H.264 encoded video file is one that has the.h264 file extension. One of the more often used formats for videos nowadays, especially high definition videos, is this sort of file format, which is a video compression format. In addition to handling video recording, the format is capable of handling video compression and distribution tasks. This kind of video file format was initially made available in the middle of 2003. The capabilities of the format were enhanced in later incarnations. Blu-ray devices, HD DVD players, and AVCHD video recorders all regularly employ the H264 format.
The H264 file format was developed with the intention of producing extremely high-quality video at lower bit rates than had previously been possible. Additionally, the designers intended to avoid unnecessarily complex designs, keep costs in check, and provide enough flexibility in the file format to enable widespread use. The H264 file is usually referred to incorrectly because it is typically an MP4 file, despite the fact that many people still do so. The video file must have a video container in order for the H.264 component, a video compression codec, to host it.
