In this research, video file type (mov) is used to hide an English text. This method offered high accuracy and secure for data transitions. First, frames are extracted from video file. Then on algorithm has been designed and implemented to hide and extract the text message. Hiding process concerns with converting the text into corresponding codes, then store these codes inside the basic color panel of video file and exactly on the fourth order after floating point of every pixel. Extracting process concerns with inversing the whole process of hiding. Experimental results demonstrated success of  hiding process.
The designed algorithm has been implemented using Matlab (ver. 7) on P4 computer.
