The iPhone is an Internet-connected, multimedia smartphone designed and marketed by Apple Inc, announced on January 9, 2007. Since its minimal hardware interface lacks a physical keyboard, the multi-touch screen renders a virtual keyboard when necessary. The iPhone functions as a camera phone (also including text messaging and visual voicemail), a portable media player (equivalent to a video iPod), and an Internet client (with email, web browsing, and Wi-Fi connectivity).
The first-generation phone hardware was quad-band GSM with EDGE; the second generation added UMTS with HSDPA. Though lacking of a physical keyboard, iPhone has lots of functions, from universal text messaging, email, to visual voicemail, web browsing, Wi-Fi connectivity, etc, which can be operated via its virtual keyboard. And most important, it's a portable media player. It supports music, audiobook, podcast, application and video. Fun is always with you if an iPhone is in your hands.
Most iPhone users like to watch movies on this beautiful handset. However, according to iPhone's official page, there are many technical specifications as follows for iPhone video file:
Video Format: MP4, MOV, M4V
Video Size: up to 640x480
Video Framerate: up to 30fps
Video Bitrate: up to 1.5Mbps for H.264, or 2.5Mbps for MPEG-4
Audio: AAC up to 160Kbps, 48kHz
All of us know that, iPhone supports MP4 and H.264 formats. If we want to enjoy the video files or movies, we must convert them to MP4 or H.264 formats.
MP4 is short for MPEG-4 Part 14, MPEG is short for The Moving Picture Experts Group, which is a working group within ISO/IEC, specifying video and audio encoding standards. As of late 2005, MPEG has grown to approximately 350 members per meeting and the members are experts in the field of video and audio. MPEG has standardized the following compression formats and ancillary standards: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-3, MPEG-4; MPEG-4 expands MPEG-1 to support video/audio "objects", 3D content, low bitrate encoding and support for Digital Rights Management. MPEG-4 mainly applies to videophone, VideoEmail and Electronics and so on. It requires lower transmission rate, which is between 4800-64000bits/sec, 176-by-144 resolution. Compared with MPEG-1 and MPEG-2, MPEG-4 is fit for interactive AV service and remote monitoring.
MP4 is a multimedia container format standard specified as a part of MPEG-4. It is most commonly used to store digital audio and digital video streams, especially those defined by MPEG, but can also be used to store other data such as subtitles and still images. Like most modern container formats, MPEG-4 Part 14 allows streaming over the Internet. The official filename extension for MPEG-4 Part 14 files is .mp4, thus the container format is often referred to simply as MP4.
H.264 is a standard for video compression, and is equivalent to MPEG-4 Part 10, or MPEG-4 AVC (for Advanced Video Coding). The final drafting work on the first version of the standard was completed in May 2003. H.264 is the standard of highly compressed digital video codec, which is the product of a partnership effort known as Joint Video Team (JVT), developed by the ITU(ITU Telecommunication Standardization Sector) Video coding Experts Group together with the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group(MPEG).
It's also known as MPEG-4 part 10 or MPEG-4 AVC ( for Advanced Video Coding).Compared to the formal video standard, such as MPEG-2 or H.263, H.264 delivers the same high video quality at a third or half the data rate. Meanwhile, it does not insert much complicated coding tools, which makes it incompatible with the hardware. H.264 is able to cover a wide range of different code rate and video resolution and is capable to work on all kind of networks and systems, such as multicast, DVD storage, RTP/IP network and ITU-T multimedia telephone system.

AVI is common for storing video and audio data on computers. AVI, short for Audio Video Interleaved, is a multimedia container format introduced by Microsoft in November 1992. As a container, AVI can contain both audio and video data in a file that allows synchronous audio-with-video playback. Like the DVD video format, AVI files support multiple streaming audio and video, although these features are seldom used. Most AVI files also use the file format extensions developed by the Matrox OpenDML group in February 1996. With codecs of DivX and Xvid, the picture quality of AVI may even better than some videos.
