If your smartphone or tablet won’t open a video, this means that it doesn’t have necessary codecs installed. This problem can be easily solved by simply converting the video with the settings optimized for your device. Here, in this article, we will tell you how to do it using Movavi Video Converter.
General information about the program
Movavi Video Converter enables you to change the media file format in a couple of seconds. The program supports most of the popular formats for both, import and export. Here are some of them:
- Video: MP4, AVI, MOV, WMV, FLV, MKV, 3GP, WebM
- Audio: MP3, AAC, FLAC, OGG, WMA, AIF, M4A, M4B
- Images: JPEG, BMP, PCX, GIF, PNG, TIFF, XBM
There is an option to enable two-pass encoding for converting videos. It finds the optimal combination of the output file size and quality. The high conversion speed is ensured by Intel hardware acceleration, NVIDIA NVENC and CUDA, and SuperSpeed mode. This mode is available on the condition that you don’t change the file’s bitrate and codec. In this case, the conversion speed will be as high as if you were copying files from one folder to another.
Before you convert the files you may probably need to edit them. Just for this purpose, there is a built-in editor with basic tools: stabilization, volume normalization, noise removal, color correction, adding subtitles and watermarks, cropping, rotating, and trimming. Some of the changes (e.g. stabilization or color correction) can be applied to all files simultaneously saving you even more time.
Converting for portable devices
In addition to 180+ formats, there are 200+ conversion profiles for mobile devices available in the program. The list includes tablets and smartphones of the most popular brands: Sony, Samsung, LG, Google Nexus, Microsoft, Motorola, Xiaomi, Lenovo, HTC, Huawei, and more. There are also presets for TV sets, game consoles PlayStation and Xbox, and other devices.
There are three ways to find the necessary conversion profile:
- Look through the list in the Devices tab.
- Type the model’s name into the search bar.
- Connect the device to the computer after launching the program. It will be detected automatically.
In most cases, H.264 MP4 will be chosen as an output combination of codec and format. The resolution, in its turn, will fit the parameters of your phone’s screen. All you have to do now is choose the destination folder and click Convert. Plus, you can opt to transfer videos straight to your iTunes library.
Movavi Video Converter is a lightweight tool that will help you keep your video collection in order and adapt files for viewing specifically on your device. If the high-quality result is what you’re looking for – this program does the trick in a split second.
