Converting Movies with Movavi Video Converter
Generally you should have no problem watching movies in the form of video files on your
PC. In fact in many cases it is more reliable than watching it from a DVD or online streaming
video. That being said there is one issue that you may run into that can be frustrating:
As you probably are aware video files can come in a range of formats such as MP4, MKV,
WMV, MOV, AVI, and so on. While your PC should be able to cope with most of these
formats, from time to time you may run into a movie that is in a format that it can’t play.
When that happens you will have two choices: Download a specialized player, or convert
the video to a compatible format instead.
Needless to say the latter is far more convenient, and will ensure that you can watch your
movies regardless of their format. On top of that with Movavi Video Converter it is actually
easy to convert WMV to MP4, MOV to AVI, or any other formats that you require.
Once you launch Movavi Video Converter, you just need to add the movie that you want to
convert. That can be done by either selecting the ‘Add Media’ then ‘Add Video’ buttons, or
simply dragging and dropping the movie into the main window.
To select the format that you wish to use, you need only look to the lower area of Movavi
Video Converter. There you’ll find several tabs, with all the video formats you could possibly
need neatly organized under the one labeled ‘Video’.
If you aren’t sure which format is best, you can look under the tab labeled ‘Devices’ to find
presets for various devices and platforms. When you select a preset Movavi Video Converter
will automatically use the optimal video format and settings for that device or platform, so
you don’t need to manually select one.
That is really all that is required to convert your movies, and once you’ve set it up you can
click the ‘Convert’ button to get it underway. Keep in mind that you can also adjust the
other video settings with Movavi Video Converter and alter the frame rate, bitrate and
resolution, or even compress it down to a specific file size.
Additionally Movavi Video Converter has numerous other features that may prove useful in
various situations. It can help you to convert audio and image files, extract audio tracks,
create animated GIFs, enhance the video quality, cut and join video segments, grab
screenshots, and much more.
While these features aren’t necessary if you just want to convert your movies and make
sure they are compatible, it wouldn’t hurt to explore and experiment with them. By doing so
you can familiarize yourself with the full scope of features in Movavi Video Converter, and
may even be able to perform other tasks such as saving highlight clips, compiling video
reels, or simply improving the quality of your videos on the whole.
