To be completely honest M4V and MP4 are actually closely related, with the former being a version of MP4 that was developed by Apple – mainly for use on the iTunes Store. While M4V is compatible with a fairly wide range of devices and platforms, some mobile devices and other platforms don’t support it.
If you’d like to make sure your videos are more compatible – converting them to MP4 is a good step to take. More importantly, it is really not that difficult if you use Movavi Video Converter as an M4V to MP4 converter.
To put it simply, Movavi Video Converter will let you convert your M4V videos to MP4 in 3 simple steps after you launch the software. The first thing you should do is click on the ‘Add Media’ button then select ‘Add Video’ and add the M4V video that you want to convert to the software.
Next up you need to open up the ‘Video’ tab in Movavi Video Converter and select the ‘MP4’ category then pick one of the presets listed there. Each preset has a different resolution, so you can choose the one that you want to use or opt to use the one labelled ‘Original Size’ if you’d like to keep the video resolution the same.
Last but not least you can go ahead and click the ‘Convert’ button so that Movavi Video Converter begins to convert your M4V video to MP4. If you want you could click on the ‘folder’ icon beside the ‘Save to’ field to set the destination folder before that, but in any case when your video is converted the destination folder will open so you can view the file.
As you can see the entire process of setting up and converting videos is simple and straightforward using Movavi Video Converter, and the same applies when converting videos of other formats as well. In fact, you will be able to convert other media files, create animated GIFs, extract audio tracks, and more.
Essentially Movavi Video Converter is designed to make it easier to manage and prepare media files and has a wider range of features that you may expect. It can resize videos using different methods, compress video file sizes, or even edit videos to alter them in a number of ways.
Although you don’t really need to explore these additional features when you want to convert M4V videos to MP4 – you should make it a point to do so nonetheless. While you may not need to compress, edit, or convert other media files using Movavi Video Converter at this very moment, it is a safe bet that you may have a need to do so at some point or other.
