FLV and F4V are the two major formats in which flash files are saved. These files are embedded within the SWF files. In FLV format, the video and audio data are encoded in the same way as they are in the SWF files. F4V, on the other hand, is a format that is based on the ISO base formats.
FLV format supports H.264 video and AAC audio whereas F4V offers better support to ACC and H.264 than FLV format. FLV format can be accessed and viewed using Adobe Flash Player on all popular browsers and platforms. F4V, on the other hand, is not available on the majority of the Adobe Flash Player Plugins.
FLV supports screen video, Sorenson Spark, and also VP6 compression while F4V does not support these codecs.
Thus it can be concluded that FLV is the preferred choice of the users and has better compatibility while F4V is the latest and updated version that is not yet developed fully and have limited capabilities.
