How to Convert MOV to MPEG or Vice Versa

Edited by Ben Jacklin

The QuickTime file format was developed by Apple for their hardware. It has two extensions: .mov and .qt. While opening MOV files on Mac is not a problem, Windows and Android in most cases don’t natively support this format. Users of these platforms need to install a special codec for a particular media player or convert the file to another, more widely used format. MPEG (MPG) is a great example of a universal format. Because it’s an international standard for saving audio and video files, this format is supported by almost every device.

In this article, we’ll show you how to convert MOV to MPEG with Movavi Video Converter and compare MOV to MPEG.
