BMP (Bitmap) is very popular nowadays due
to the common use of Windows. That is because BMP is the
standard format used by Windows for saving image files. It
contains more image information than the JPEG, and there is
almost no compression of images. So it takes a larger disk
space. Presently, 24 bits per pixel BMP files are the most
common in all the 1, 4, 8, 15, 24, 32, 64 bits per pixel BMP
DIB is device-independent
bitmap, which exchanges DIB between devices and applications
with a lot of internal data.
RLE is Run Length Encoding, lossless
data compression in bmp format to decrease the file size.
WMV contains video and audio
streams respectively using Windows Media Video codec and
Windows Media Audio codec. ASF is Advanced Streaming Format. It
is an extensible file format developed primarily for storing
synchronized digital video, audio, subtitle streams, or
transmitting data on the internet. ASF is also a multimedia
container of Windows Media Video or Windows Media Audio.
