There aren’t that many really popular video formats, and MOV is one of the leading contenders. This format was developed by Apple as a standard for playing video on Macs. However, the incompatibility of formats between different platforms and devices can still be a problem for many users. For example, MOV videos can’t be played on Android devices unless you can track down a special application for it.
The easiest way to resolve this problem is to convert MOV files to another file type that is more widely supported by devices and operating systems, such as MP4 (MPEG-4). Movavi offers an efficient software application for converting MOV files to MP4 without loss of quality – Movavi Video Converter supports more than 180 formats and 200 mobile devices.
