The .mov file extension is a common multimedia format often used in Apple's Quicktime for saving movies and other video files, using a proprietary compression algorithm developed by Apple Computer and is compatible with both Macintosh and Mac platforms. The MOV format specifies a multimedia container file that contains one or more tracks, each of which contains a particular type of data like audio, video, effects etc. The files saved in this format are compressed which makes it convenient and easy for the user to download the videos from the internet to the computer or any other media device.
