Let's start with a brief look at what these files represent.

 

MOV file

The file with the extension MOV is Apple QuickTime a movie file that can store audio, video and text in the same file and Apple devices usually contain MOV files because this is the format in which these devices record video.

MOV files cannot be opened by all programs and here there is a problem where a large number of people wonder why a certain video material cannot be played. MOV files can be played Apple programs, VLC, Windows Media Player, Elmedia Player.

 

MP4 file

An MP4 file is an abbreviation for an MPEG-4 video file. It is an international standard for audiovisual encoding and this file can be played by most programs.

Certain video editing programs do not support the MOV video format, and if you wanted to use that video or just a specific clip, you will need to convert the give file to MP4.

Online video conversion

Nowadays, the Internet, searching for various information on it and whatever you want, is enough to use properly Google search engine. There are a number of sites on the Internet where you can convert video material for free and very easily. Below are a few:

Online convert.com

cloudconvert.com

freeconvert.com

zamzar.com

kapwing.com

 

On most of these sites there are certain restrictions on the size of the file, so e.g. you can't convert videos larger than 100mb for free, in which case you would have to subscribe. Many here are disappointed and ask how to solve the conversion problem in that case.

However, the conversion can also be done on the computer itself, in just a few steps. Below you will find out how.

 

Convert MOV to MP4 on PC

You have received a MOV video file that takes up e.g. over 3GB, with about 2x material and you want to convert it to MP4 as soon as possible. All you need is VLC Media Player which is completely free and you can download it here.

After you have downloaded, installed and run this program, you need to select from the menu Files (Files), then “Convert / Save”, as you can see in the photo below.

When a new window opens, enter the name of the new file and be sure to end it with the .MP4 extension and go to "Save".

Conversion will take some time, depending on the size of the file being converted. The video will be saved in MP4 format, where you specified.

As we mentioned, if you are facing a challenge, you can find a large number of solutions at Google-u. Among other things, this blog goes in favor of that and we hope that it will be useful to everyone who encounters such a challenge.

Since 2017. we cooperate with Digitizer. Extremely precise and professional cooperation. We are seeing results, and given the industry we are involved in, a lot depends on the marketing that Digitizer does. The results are best seen in the number of people who come to the interview. Every time I suggested something, the Digitizer team made sure to make changes to the presentation. Of course I recommend them. They have already been recommended.
