MPEG-1 Audio Layer 1 (MP1) is an earlier, simpler version of the MPEG audio standard. MP1 is mostly obsolete, but still supported. MP1 was part of the Digital Compact Cassette format. Almost all files that were MP1 were replaced by the newer MPEG-1 Audio Layer II (MP2) and MPEG-1 Audio Layer III or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III (MP3) file formats.
Due to MP1 being largely obsolete, VLC media player is the best option for opening an MP1 file, with the bonus that this player works across platforms.

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.
