What are Video Files?

The Video File format is used to store video data in the form of a digital file on a computer system. Unlike images, video data is always stored in a compressed format in order to reduce the size of the file. Normally, a video file consists of two parts: the video data in a video coding format, alongside the audio data in an audio coding format, both included inside of a container. The container can also contain other video details like subtitles, synchronization information, hyperlinks, meta data, and more.

This category of files also encompasses video project and video information files.
