MP4 & MP3 FAQ’s

What is MP3?

It’s a digital audio file format. It can be on a computer hard drive, a CD-ROM or a USB flash drive and played through compatible software or hardware. An example of software that can play an mp3 would be Windows Media Player or iTunes. An example of hardware would be a CD-ROM drive or a home or car CD player that has the MP3 logo on it. Because MP3 files are small, they can easily be transferred across the Internet.

What is MP4?

It’s a digital video file format. It is used to stream video over the internet and for storing high quality video in various formats, primarily on hard drives, DVD-ROMs and USB flash drives. MP4 video is usually viewed via a computer or tablet* device over a web connection, but can be stored locally (on a computer’s hard drive) for viewing when not connected to the internet. MP4 offers various levels of compression, which means that you can achieve smaller file sizes with longer videos, but the smaller the file size, the lower the quality of video. This is useful when storage space is limited and/or you want to make streaming video available to people with varying internet connection speeds.
*Tablet compatibility is not guaranteed or implied. Varying standards regarding how tablet devices process video makes it impossible to guarantee playability.

Can I transfer the MP3 files to my iTunes?

Yes. The fine folks at Apple have provided instructions here: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH20507?locale=en_US

Can I put the MP3 files on my iPhone?

Yes. And again, the fine folks at Apple have provided instructions: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201253

I have an Android phone. Can I put the MP3 files on it?

Yes. Probably. Depends on the phone and the version of the Android operating system, but Google has provided instructions as well. Good luck. Here they are: https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/1101500?hl=en

Will the MP4 video on USB work on my TV?

Maybe. Most newer TV’s have USB ports. Your owner’s manual will say whether or not this will work. You can always just insert the USB drive into the slot on your TV and see what happens. Seriously. This won’t hurt the TV as long as you don’t ram it in or hit with a hammer or other large object. If it’s compatible, your TV will bring up a menu for watching the video.

Will the MP4 video on USB work on my iPad?

The flash drive products are designed for desktop computers only. They will work with some TV sets (but this is not guaranteed as it depends on the tv manufacturer), but are not designed for tablets or devices that don’t have USB ports.
