How to convert MOV to MP4

Convert MOV to MP4 output files simply.

MOV (MPEG-4 Part 14) is a Quicktime movie file format introduced by Apple. It’s great for video editing or playing on Mac devices like the iPad or iPhone. MOVs can contain video files, audio files, and even text. MP4 files, which work on nearly all media players and streaming video sites, also store data like object and scene descriptors, which are helpful for streaming. This is why, if you plan to use the video file on other platforms, you’ll need to know how to convert video to MP4. The MP4 format is more versatile — it has less loss of quality at a higher compression, which makes it perfect for streaming platforms with a high video resolution at a smaller file size.
