F4V File Format

Flash video media container file

F4V is a file extension for a Flash media container file format. F4V files enable embedded Shockwave.

F4V files support H.264, also known as MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding). H.264 is a video compression standard that offers significantly greater compression than its predecessors.  

Flash was originally developed by Macromedia and is now owned by Adobe. Programs that open F4V files include Adobe's Flash Player and Windows Media Player. Apple's iOS, the mobile operating system used on the iPhone and iPad, doesn't include native support for the Flash plug-in but browser apps are available to enable Flash on the devices.

The general Flash file extension is SWF (Shockwave Flash). Other Flash video file formats include the FLV, F4P, F4A and F4B file extensions
