How to Convert MKV to MP4 and Vice Versa
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 computers 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.
With Movavi Video Converter, you can even transfer MKV to MP4 without losing quality using the revolutionary SuperSpeed mode! You can also use this smart app as an MP4 to MKV converter if you need to do the reverse – convert MP4 to MKV. The program was specifically designed for fast conversion between more than 180 multimedia formats, so you can forget about format compatibility problems once and for all.
