MP4 is a digital multimedia format most commonly used to store video and audio, but can also be used to store other data such as subtitles and still images. Usually it is encoded with MPEG-4 code. MPEG-4 compression discards more information than MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 which means MP4 is developed mainly to use on portable devices, like PSP, iPod, iPhone, Android, etc. and online stores.
MPEG is compressed with MPEG-1 or MPEG-2. Usually, MPEG is used with VCDs and DVDs. Due to the compression feature compared with MP4, MPEG can provide more superior video quality. We can't tell the quality difference clearly from tiny screens in mobile phones, but when playing on HDTV the final video quality difference is very obvious.
