Why convert MP4 to text?

MP4 video files are everywhere! Not only are they one of the most popular types of video file, being supported by all the major media players, they're also the default format for video for many devices and software applications. If you've recorded a video meeting in Zoom, Google Meet or Microsoft Teams, the file you downloaded is likely to be an MP4 file. We've developed our MP4-to-text converter to enable you to easily turn your video files into text transcriptions. So now it's quick and easy to distribute meeting notes to your team, or to create accurate subtitles for your webinar or presentation

MP4 transcriptions also provide you with fully-searchable text - ideal for repurposing video content as an SEO-friendly article, or for archiving interviews or research conversations in a form you can easily search through later. Uploading a transcription of your MP4 along with the video itself is also a simple way to improve the accessibility of your content - now hearing-impaired viewers can consume your content too, and foreign-language viewers can easily run the text through a translation tool. Whatever your reason for needing to change your MP4 audio to text, the Zamzar video-to-text converter will make the task straightforward and painless - so no more manual transcribing. Phew!

High Quality

A converted file doesn't mean a change of formatting or style. Instead, the only thing you should notice is a new file extension.


We’re always innovating, which has led to us releasing a new desktop app, real-time file conversions, and many more file-conversion types.

Dedicated Support

As well as a page of FAQs and a catalogue of helpful videos, we also have a dedicated support team who can help assist you with any queries you may have.


Ads take away from the focus of converting your file, so that's why you won't see any on our site.
