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!
mp4are different names for exactly the same format. The others mentioned are actually all different formats.
