MKV is a popular format for HD video compression. However, in spite of becoming more popular over the last few years, it is still far from being widely supported on mobile devices – and even PCs, as MKV files are often too ‘heavy’ for smooth playback. There is an easy solution for this problem, though. You can transcode MKV video into an MPEG-4 file, which makes it possible to watch your movies and video clips on almost any platform or device.
With Movavi Video Converter, you can even transfer MKV to MP4 without losing quality using the revolutionary SuperSpeed mode! You can also use this smart app as an MP4 to MKV converter if you need to do the reverse – convert MP4 to MKV. The program was specifically designed for fast conversion between more than 180 multimedia formats, so you can forget about format compatibility problems once and for all.
Download Video Converter for Windows and give it a try – just follow the simple steps below and turn your files into a different format.
Step 1: Install the Program on Your PC
Download the installation file for Movavi Video Converter to your hard drive, open it when the download is complete, and install the program.
Step 2: Open Files for Conversion
Add the files you want to encode into a different format by clicking Add Video in the upper left corner. Thanks to support for batch conversion, you can change the format of not just one file, but your whole video collection at once, if you wish.
Step 3: Select the Output Format
Click the Convert to field to access the list of supported formats. Go to Video and audio formats and choose the required format – MP4 or MKV – depending on your goals. Each format has a list of ready-made presets, offering a choice of resolutions. Select the one that best meets your needs, or click the Settings button to specify a custom resolution and other video parameters if you wish.
Step 4: Specify the Destination Folder and Start Converting
By default, all output files are stored in the Movavi Library folder. If you want to use a different folder, click the Browse button to the right of the Destination field and locate the required folder on your computer. To start processing your media files, just click the Convert button. Since Movavi software supports the latest video processing technologies, conversion takes almost no time. No matter whether you transform your MKV files to MP4 or MP4 to MKV, the results will always be perfect!
