MOV files tend to be larger than MP4, not all players will play them back for you, and sometimes when you need to upload a video online, a platform would only accept a limited number of formats that doesn’t always include MOV. So if your camera or phone are recording videos in MOV but you need to convert them into MP4, this is the post for you
Here’s how to convert MOV to MP4 using CloudConvert:
- From the CloudConvert homepage, click the Select File button. Pick the MOV file you’re going to convert, then select Open from the File Explorer screen’s bottom corner.
- On the next page, click on the Down Arrow icon next to the phrase Convert To. Then, choose MP4 from the menu that appears.
- Click the Convert button to the right. Once the conversion is complete, CloudConvert may automatically play your newly converted video file for you so you can see if the conversion is how you want it to look. If the video looks fine to you, you can download the file by clicking on the green Download button.
- The file will go to your Downloads folder, and from there, you can watch your MP4 video on any compatible device or platform.
