MTV video format description
The mtv file extension is mainly associated with MTV file format supposedly created to allow video playback capabilities on inexpensive Chinese-made portable MP4 players without increasing the cost of those players with the license royalties (and more processor power).
The format operates by displaying a series of raw uncompressed rgb 565/555 image frames while playing MP3 audio but as the files are of low resolution and frame rate, sizes are comparable to MPEG-1 or MPEG-2. (in a bytes-per-minute sense). Encoding and decoding are less processor-intensive than other contemporary formats, as in fact very little "encoding" is actually done.
