Apple's Choice of Best iPhone 8 & iPhone X Video Format

As you can see, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X will play back videos encoded using either the MPEG-4 or H.264 codecs. Apple's likely reason for these particular choices of codec is that they are an open, established standard, and they both provide a very high level of video and audio quality for a given file size. MPEG-4 has historically been very good in this regard to begin with, and the H.264 codec has improved on the quality and file size efficiency. Further, this does not represent the video standard that is used by most video recording devices, TV recording devices, or commercial DVDs. The result is that finding video content from anywhere other than the iTunes Store that is already encoded in an Apple-ready format is going to be difficult, and much of this content will therefore need to be converted.
