What is ROQ?
The format runs at a fixed 30 frames per second with an optional 22050 Hz mono or stereo sound track. Videos may technically be up to 65520 x 65520 pixels with both dimensions divisible by 16 and produce a valid RoQ file, but none of id Software's games will play back a video with dimensions that aren't a power of two, most likely because of OpenGL's texture sizing restrictions.
NOTE: It's been reported that movies with dimensions greater than 512 x 512 cause issues in various id Software games. Until this can be positively confirmed or denied it's best to avoid higher resolutions.
RoQ is a motion compensating vector quanitizer format, similar to Cinepak, but higher quality due to the use of the ITU-R BT.601 colorspace (the same one used in component video, PAL televisions, JPEG and MPEG), whereas Cinepak uses a low-quality YUV-like colorspace designed for faster decoding that often results in gamut degradation before compression even begins.
Because it's a vector quantizer, RoQ files are very fast to decode and very slow to encode. Decoding involves nothing more than converting the colorspace of the codebooks and then copying data, whereas encoding involves using several complicated schemes to produce a "palette" of image fragments that will result in the least degradation.
RoQ uses two codebooks per frame, with the second being constructed from pieces of the first, with up to 256 entries each. Due to this, only 1024 new colors can be introduced each frame, severely limiting the color gamut. This could arguably be improved by better predicting which sections will be motion compensated, but doing so is difficult, since codebook entries are generated from non-motion-compensated image sections, but whether or not they'll be used depends on the quality of them compared to motion compensated sections, resulting in a chicken-and-egg problem. This is made worse by the fact that all three major RoQ codecs are single-pass.
While the format is limited and much lower quality than MPEG and Indeo Video, it was presumedly preferred by id Software because of the lack of royalties, the lack of patent liability that presents a serious problem with most video formats, and the absence of complex platform-specific APIs.
What is WAV?
Both WAVs and AIFFs are compatible with Windows, Macintosh, and Linux operating systems. The format takes into account some differences of the Intel CPU such as little-endian byte order. The RIFF format acts as a "wrapper" for various audio compression codecs.
Though a WAV file can hold compressed audio, the most common WAV format contains uncompressed audio in the linear pulse code modulation (LPCM) format. The standard audio file format for CDs, for example, is LPCM-encoded, containing two channels of 44,100 samples per second, 16 bits per sample. Since LPCM uses an uncompressed storage method which keeps all the samples of an audio track, professional users or audio experts may use the WAV format for maximum audio quality. WAV audio can also be edited and manipulated with relative ease using software. The WAV format supports compressed audio, using, on Windows, the Audio Compression Manager. Any ACM codec can be used to compress a WAV file. The UI for Audio Compression Manager may be accessed through various programs that use it, including Sound Recorder in some versions of Windows.
Beginning with Windows 2000, a WAVE_FORMAT_EXTENSIBLE header was defined which specifies multiple audio channel data along with speaker positions, eliminates ambiguity regarding sample types and container sizes in the standard WAV format and supports defining custom extensions to the format chunk.
