The VP3 extension file is a compressed streaming video file on demand using the VP3 video codec.
The term Codec comes from 'COder', which refers to encode and 'DECoder', which refers to decode.
It is a code that performs its function when the operating system or software requires it.
This code transforms digital audio and video signals into a playable format.
In other words, a Codec encodes and compresses the data of a video or audio file to speed up its transfer or to take up less space.
When playing or editing the file, it is decompressed, this means that we are dealing with a compound word since the Codec performs two functions: compress and decompress.
The first is to make the file more portable, and the second is to provide all the data in the file.
VP3 was originally a proprietary video codec, developed by On2 Technologies.
It is similar in quality and bitrate to the MPEG-4 -2 video codec.
The VP3 (Codec) is currently maintained by the Xiph.org Foundation, which has upgraded the VP3 format to the Theora format.
The VP3 extension file contains video compressed at variable compression rates, and is used to deliver the highest possible video quality taking into account bandwidth fluctuations and settings.
VP3 files can be played in Windows Media Player and QuickTime as long as they have the appropriate codec installed.
