Pure video formats

These formats are "monolithic" video formats, meaning that the file format and the encoding of the video data are tied to each other.

See also Graphics: Animated image formats.

Video container formats

These formats are only containers for video, which can contain videos in many different encodings (or even other data like audio)

Video stream formats

These formats are raw bitstream formats commonly contained in one of the above containers (but not necessarily)

Metadata formats

  • F4M (Flash Media Manifest)
  • SRR (reScene files)
  • SRS (reSample files)

Subtitle formats

Interactive media files

(generally accompany video streams and other multimedia, tying them together in a presentation or user-interaction as on a disc)

  • BDMV (Blu-ray disc files for user interactivity)
  • CLPI (Blu-ray disc clip info files)
  • MPLS (Blu-ray disc playlists)

Video Developer/Editor files

Video streaming services

Television broadcast formats

Also see Chyron for on-screen graphics.

See Radio for more details of how such broadcasts are transmitted.
