Is a media container format designed for streaming over the Internet. Used on popular video hosting sites. Video is usually stored in h.263 and h.264 formats, audio is a in MP3 or other less popular codecs. FLV-file format is a bit stream, which provides high-quality image even at low bit rates.
The *.m2v files are normally destined to be multiplexed (muxed), which is the process of adding audio data and perhaps other streams such as subtitles, before use. M2Vs are created by demultiplexing (demuxing) an existing MPEG-2, or by converting another video format to MPEG-2. The file extension m2v is mostly found with SFV Host Files.
