Cameras, smartphones, and HDTVs that support high-resolution videos are now widely available, as well as video hosting sites offering 4K and 8K clips. If you’ve downloaded a high-resolution video from the Internet and want to watch it on a PC, you may encounter several problems. Videos of such high quality may lag and buffer a lot as many computers don’t have enough power to deliver smooth playback. Plus, 4K and 8K videos take up a lot of disk space, and most computer screens don’t have a high enough resolution to play them.
One of the best solutions would be to convert a video to HD (1280 × 720 pixels). This will reduce the file size significantly, without seriously impacting the quality of the video. Try Movavi Video Converter to change the format and resolution of your videos in a fast and easy way. Download the program for Windows or Mac and check out the guide below to learn how to convert a video to HD.
