Reminder of what is the mp4 format.

You want the exact definition of MP4 ? Ok we ask ChatGPT.
MP4 stands for MPEG-4 Part 14.
The MP4 format was developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG)MPEG is a standardization organization for the audiovisual industry. MPEG is a working group of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), which defines standards for the compression, encoding and distribution of digital media. The MP4 format is an extension of the MPEG-4 format, which was created to allow better compression of videos for online distribution.
