How to Convert Video for YouTube
A wide variety of devices are used for shooting video: camcorders, digital cameras, webcams, cell phones, and more, but most of them save video in non-standard formats. This can cause problems, for example when you want to upload video to YouTube and the service doesn't support your video's format.
Movavi has developed a solution for these situations. Movavi Video Converter allows you to convert any video file to a YouTube-friendly format in no time. The program supports almost all popular video formats, including AVI, MP4, FLV, 3GP, MOV, DVD, HD video and many more. It also lets you do minor editing: trim and rotate video, adjust brightness, contrast, etc. Movavi Video Converter not only includes a set of specially tailored presets which can help you convert videos into just the right format for your purpose, but also lets you start uploading your videos to YouTube and other video services right after conversion. It couldn't be faster and easier!
