    Did you mean, different video file formats to make sure that the video file can be produced in the best format & quality? What is the purpose to ask this question? However, as you asked for video, generally there is a word "Codec'', that must be considered. which is nothing but a mechanism of compressing file. There are two types of compression, lossless & lossy. For this reason, it can make audio sounds flat/muffled or make videos difficult to play. To make a difference and quality, it is necessary a video file have a corresponding codec. Without this, it can make audio sounds flat/ muffled or make videos difficult to play. There are several, in which very commonly used is h.264, which is often used for high definition digital video & distribution of video content.

    I am just a stupid newbie, don't know much things about this. I am trying to ask something about the codes like jpg, because if I put this behind a dataname that does not have anything like that, it would change to picture, but I don't want to make a picture, I want to make a video. How do I do it?

    Yes, and some of them aren't jpg files. They are just called data.

    Are those files extension is data or .dat? If some of them have another extension other than .jpg, you may ask the source to supply of those files that have different fie format. Next to create a video with these .jpg files (if understood correctly), for this purpose, there are several software that can help you to create video with .jpg files like slide show or something like that. Also it allows to include audio (according to your choice) and helps to make a video. There are both like free and with cost. Now this is your part to reveal more and that can be helpful to get back.

    For free to use, you can try Freemake Video Converter, which helps to create video with .jpg files. Also GIMP (free to use) can also help to create GIF files from .jpg file formats. Also you can try to create video/slide show through online, that offers some websites to do the same task.
