JPG for images and WAV for audio

Is the JPG format for images and the WAV format for audio necessary for this whole thing to work? Thanks in advance for the answers.

There are other formats you could use.

The JPG format is just one possible image format. Any valid image format would work. Some examples in this course use PNG format.

Likewise, WAV is just one possible format for audio. It's not even a very popular one because it takes up a lot of space for a given length of sound. Another (and much more compact) format is MP3, which is also shown in some examples in this course.
