From experience I know that if I save
.jpg file with an
.png extension (or vice versa) the most programs will open it as normally. I am wondering why is that the case and ask people with experience in the video codecs, what will happen if I try to save
avi files as
mp4? (To be totally clear: By saving I mean, renaming their filename with the non-corresponding extension)
Will the video players supporting AVI and MOV be still able to play the file if its file extension is MP4.
- If so what are all the possible issues you could describe that could pop while trying such a playback?
- If not, why? And also why this is possible with images? Describe all the technical details you feel related to this topic!
