MOV Video Format MOV Converter
MOV is a video file format that was designed for Apple’s QuickTime Movie Player. MOV files are container files that can include video (usually with the MPEG-4 codec) and audio, as well as metadata including subtitles, text, time stamps and pictures. MOV uses ‘lossy’ compression and it’s optimised for streaming, sharing or storing on mobile devices.
Although MP4 has become an ISO open standard format for videos, MOV is also a very common video type, especially as it’s often the default format for iPhones and iPads to record video in. MOV files can be played by most media players, and you can usually import and edit MOV files with iMovie, QuickTime, VLC, or with Adobe Express, as well as with a few other video editors. You can also upload MOV files to YouTube and most social channels without any problems.
MP4 Video Format MP4 Converter
MP4, sometimes called MPEG4, is one of the most common video formats. MP4 was developed to be easily played and shared. It was originally developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) but has become an ISO standard, meaning that it’s now maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization. As MP4 is a standardised format, it will normally play easily on most devices and media players, including Windows Media Player, QuickTime, and VLC. MP4 is usually the preferred format for uploading videos to YouTube, Vimeo or other websites.
MP4 videos are made up of video and audio elements that are compressed separately. The video part is usually compressed with MPEG-4, and the audio is usually compressed using AAC, which is the audio format associated with iTunes. Because both file elements are compressed, MP4s normally have a smaller file size than many other video formats, but still maintain relatively high quality for sharing online.
How to convert a MOV to a MP4 file?
- 1. Choose the MOV file that you want to convert.
- 2. Select MP4 as the the format you want to convert your MOV file to.
- 3. Click "Convert" to convert your MOV file.
