Converting MOV to MP4 Using Movavi Video Converter

Written by Jessee R

When it was first created, MOV was designed by Apple for use on Macs. Over the years however its popularity has grown, and nowadays it can be played on many devices – with some exceptions such as Android, where a separate media player may be required. In contrast to MOV, MP4 is far more universal however and has become the most popular video format nowadays. As such it makes sense to convert your MOV videos to MP4 if you want them to be as widely-compatible as possible.

Although the idea of converting MOV to MP4 may seem like it involves a lot of work, there are ways to make it easier. In particular, you should try using Movavi Video Converter to convert MOV to MP4, as it will allow you to do so in just a few simple steps.

The first thing that you need to do is launch Movavi Video Converter and add the MOV video that you want to convert. In the main window, you should see a prompt directing you to drag files or folders that you want to add and drop them there, which is one way to add videos to the software. The other way is to click ‘Add Media’ then ‘Add Video’, and select the MOV video.

Next up you will want to set up Movavi Video Converter to convert the video that you added to MP4. To do that just open the ‘Video’ tab in the lower area, then select ‘MP4’ and choose one of the presets listed there. Each preset has a different resolution so you can choose the one that you want to use, or you could select the preset that will just use the same resolution as the original.

Technically that’s all that’s required to set up Movavi Video Converter to convert the MOV file that you added to MP4, and if you want you can click ‘Convert’ to start the conversion. Before you do that however you may want to click the ‘Edit’ button if you’d like to edit the video and trim out unwanted parts, enhance the video quality, fix common issues, or tweak it in other ways.

Another way in which Movavi Video Converter could help is by letting you compress your videos and reduce their file size. It is possible to do this by manually adjusting the video parameters, or clicking on the output file size value of the video in the main window and adjusting the slider down to the file size that you want.

As you can see converting videos is easy using Movavi Video Converter, and you can repeat the same steps to convert your videos to any format that you require. In fact, the same applies to audio files and images too, and you can use that fact to extract audio tracks, create animated GIFs or grab screenshots. Suffice to say you’ll have lots of ways in which you can do more with your videos than ever before.
