Part 1: WebM vs. MP4: Which One is Better?

Let’s talk about WebM first to get into it by making a comparison between WebM and MP4. The latter is one of the top popular formats around the world.

What is WebM

What is WebM? WebM, a video format from Google, is designed for the web (one of the video standard supported in HTML5). WebM files consist of video streams compressed with the VP8 or VP9 video codec, audio streams compressed with the Vorbis or Opus audio codecs, and WebVTT text tracks. The WebM file structure is based on the Matroska media container.

Then, what is MP4? MPEG-4 Part 14 or MP4 is one of the most commonly-used container format that is able to host any number of video, audio, subtitles, images, chapters in a single file. It also allows for advanced content such as 3D graphics, menus and user interactivity. Similar to container format WebM or MKV, it is able to be streamed over the Internet.

Video quality and size are the main 2 factors in comparing WebM and MP4. Both formats provide high quality of image and audio, but MP4 would be a little bit superior to WebM. However, WebM saves much more space than MP4 in file size. Actually, both WebM and MP4 in fact are compressed into a relatively small file size. Developed with a purpose for providing DVD quality pictures, a MP4 video can sometimes be very large. However, on the other hand, mainly used for Internet streaming, this requires WebM videos to be compressed as smaller as it could be. Therefore, as technology works, WebM videos are much more accessible and files can be downloaded quickly from the Internet.

Let’s back to the main topic: how to make WebMs. With the right WebM maker tool, this wouldn’t even become a question.

Actually, there are also multiple online WebM maker tools that could help you make WebM videos like gfycat.com.
