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.
To transfer MKV to MP4 without losing video quality, use Movavi Video Converter – software that’s specifically designed for fast conversion between more than 180 multimedia formats. 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 More presets for formats > MP4 and find the list of MP4 ready-made presets, which offers a choice of aspect ratios and resolutions. Select the one that you prefer.
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 left of the Destination field and locate the required folder on your computer. To start transcoding MKV files to MP4, just click the Convert button.
