Adobe Flash MP4 Multimedia (F4V) is a rather ubiquitous video container format because globally, most viewers of online videos use technology that is designed to play on Adobe Flash Player. In fact, F4V is often referred to as “Flash Video.” An F4V container compresses multimedia files with a codec and facilitates delivery of the files as streaming audio and video over the Internet.
On most platforms, F4V files open in Adobe Flash Player by default. On Microsoft Windows OS, Adobe AIR might be the default player. For guaranteed results on Mac OS X, and Linux/Unix, open F4V files with VLC media player.

MPEG-4 (MP4) is a container video format that can store multimedia data, usually audio and video. It is compatible with a wide range of devices and operating systems, using a codec to compress file size, resulting in a file that is easy to manage and store. It is also a popular video format for streaming over the Internet, such as on YouTube. Many consider MP4 to be one of the best video formats available today.
MP4 files open in the operating system's default video player. Simply double-clicking the file opens it. There is no need for third-party software. On Windows, it opens in Windows Media Player. On Mac, it opens in QuickTime.
On some devices, particularly mobile, opening this file type can be problematic. MP4 is a container that contains various kinds of data, so when there is a problem opening the file, it usually means that data in the container (an audio or video codec) is not compatible with the device’s OS. To resolve this issue, try VLC media player.
