    H264 - difference between MOV / MP4 container?

    Bananzaman Level 1

      Hi Folks,

       

      I'm compressing broadcast video from PR422 Quicktime to an intermediate quality / size movie (for ease of transfer by internet).

       

      My associate is using Sorenson Squeeze to compress this intermediate file to a smaller FLASH FLV file for web delivery.

       

      Is there any difference or advantage in the intermediate file (H.264 Codec) being rendered into Quicktime (mov) or MP4?

       

      Thanks for any input ...

      (PS - i notice that when I render in MOV format, with a simiar data rate to MP4, there's noticeable pixelation and artifacts in the output ... Premiere doesn't seem to handle MOV renders with anywhere near the quality that Final Cut did .. ?!)
