How to Convert MP4 to WMV and Vice Versa
MP4 is an extremely popular video format which is supported by most media players, thanks to its high quality compression. This means that MP4 files don’t get too large but your movies and clips are still of acceptable quality when viewed on the big screens. However, we do sometimes need uncompressed video for the best possible viewing experience, or for detailed editing. In these cases, if you have a Windows-based PC, it’s better to choose the WMV format. So it’s helpful to have a converter on hand that translates files from MP4 to WMV or vice versa.
What’s the best way to do this? Ask Movavi! We have a great tool – Movavi Video Converter – which supports 180 video and audio formats (including, of course, MP4 and WMV) and also lets you save video and audio in an appropriate format for more than 200 mobile devices. Now you can transfer MP4 to WMV or other formats within minutes!
Step 1: Download and Install Video Converter
Download Movavi Video Converter and install it following the onscreen instructions. This Windows software is intuitive and easy-to-use, so you don’t need to be an expert to use it!
Step 2: Add a File to the Converter
To add a file for conversion, click the Add Video button in the Video Converter interface. Choose the video files you want to change from MP4 to WMV or vice versa.
Step 3: Set the Output Format and Settings
Click the Convert to field, go to More presets for formats > WMV, and choose the appropriate WMV preset to define the output format. Remember that the output file may turn out to be pretty large if you select a high resolution preset.
If you need to convert a WMV file to MP4, choose the MP4 category and the required preset. Movavi Video Converter can process a single file or a batch of files in a single pass.
Step 4: Convert and Save Your Videos
Choose the folder for the output videos in the Destination field and then click Convert to start the process. Converting a WMV to MP4 or MP4 to WMV file will take from one to several minutes, depending on the file quantity and quality.
Once the conversion is complete, your video will be exported in the format you selected and the folder where it’s been saved will open automatically.
