At first it can be difficult to understand video formats – and you may even feel lost when you encounter some formats that you’ve never seen before. While in the past you may have gotten by without having to convert your videos to different – having the capability to do so will help on numerous fronts. It will allow you to ensure the compatibility of your videos, both for yourself and when you share it with others, as well as allow you to optimize it for the various devices that you use.
Part of the reason why it makes sense to use the Movavi Video Converter to convert video formats is because it simplifies the task tremendously. All that you need to do is:
- Add the video (or videos) that you want to convert by clicking ‘Add Video and selecting it.
- Select the format that you want to convert to by expanding the ‘Convert to’ list.
- Check the ‘Destination’ folder and specify where you want to save the converted video.
- Click ‘Convert’ to start the conversion.
When you expand the ‘Convert to’ list, you’ll also notice that aside from video formats it also includes presets that are tailored to different devices and platforms. If you opt to use these presets the software will automatically use the best format and video settings accordingly to optimize it. In short, the presets will allow you to sidestep having to know which format to use for certain devices.
As you explore the other features of the Movavi Video Converter, you’ll also begin to notice that it is more than a video file converter. In fact, it is capable of converting audio and image files too while at the same time editing them to enhance their quality, crop or rotate the video, insert captions, or trim and join video segments.
Some of its other features will also allow you to extract the audio track from videos, create animated GIFs out of any existing video clips, and grab screenshots from individual frames of video.
Now that you know how to convert video formats using the Movavi Video, you should have no trouble getting started. In fact you may even be able to do a lot more than just convert videos, if you spend a little time exploring the additional features that it provides.
