List Type of File You Can Upload

A video file format is a type of file format for storing digital video data on a computer system. Video is almost always stored using lossy compression to reduce the file size. A video file normally consists of a container (e.g. in the Matroska format) containing video data in a video coding format (e.g. VP9) alongside audio data in an audio coding format (e.g. Opus). The container can also contain synchronization information, subtitles, and metadata such as title. A standardized (or in some cases de facto standard) video file type such as .webm is a profile specified by a restriction on which container format and which video and audio compression formats are allowed.

An audio file format is a file format for storing digital audio data on a computer system. The bit layout of the audio data (excluding metadata) is called the audio coding format and can be uncompressed, or compressed to reduce the file size, often using lossy compression. The data can be a raw bitstream in an audio coding format, but it is usually embedded in a container format or an audio data format with defined storage layer.

Image file formats are standardized means of organizing and storing digital images. Image files are composed of digital data in one of these formats that can be rasterized for use on a computer display or printer. An image file format may store data in uncompressed, compressed, or vector formats. Once rasterized, an image becomes a grid of pixels, each of which has a number of bits to designate its color equal to the color depth of the device displaying it.

An archive file is a file that is composed of one or more computer files along with metadata. Archive files are used to collect multiple data files together into a single file for easier portability and storage, or simply to compress files to use less storage space. Archive files often store directory structures, error detection and correction information, arbitrary comments, and sometimes use built-in encryption.

The Android application package file (Application Package File, APK) is a file format used to distribute and install software and middleware to phones with the Android operating system, similar to the MSI package on Windows or Deb on Debian OS. There are many sources of APK files on the web, but be sure to choose a site that you trust. Some APK files may contain malicious software (malware) that can jeopardize the security of your cellphone, so it is best to be careful before downloading or installing any application from outside the Play Store (and even in your Play Store it"s not really safe! ). In general, APK files found on sites such as XDA are safe sites for downloading android applications rather than from other places, so be sure to read reviews from several users there before downloading and installing them.
