Free Download: H.264 and MP4 file format Standard / Specification

Studying the standard is very important for learning H.264 and MP4 container format. Here are the download links of the free official documents.

H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10 / MPEG-4 AVC), Advanced Video Coding

It is available on both ITU-T and ISO website. H.264 is in Series H: Audiovisual and multimedia systems in ITU-T while it is in Part 10 of ISO/IEC 14496 (MPEG-4) in ISO. If you need to study the relationship between H.264 and MP4 container, you should also refer to Part 15 (not free).

Free online Youtube video downloader – ClipConverter.cc

Home Page of ClipConverter.cc

I started downloading videos online, 8 or 9 years ago. I used to study the website source code and found out the direct link of the video. I saved lots of videos successfully. But it’s hard to do the same thing on Youtube (at least for me at that time.. when I was in secondary 1…). I looked for online downloader then and tried several sites. Yet, most of them are not available anymore, like kissyoutube. Some time later, I used JDownloader instead. Over the years, Youtube also keeps changing the video retrieving method and I doubt it brings some challenges to those downloaders. Recently, I reset my computer and I am lazy to reinstall JDownloader. So I look for online application again. I found ClipConverter.cc then. It’s good because many online video downloaders only provide downloading video (without sound) or audio only. But ClipConverter.cc helps you to combine both tracks so that you can download the video with sound directly. You can also choose the resolution of a video clip.
