How to Choose an MPG-to-MP4 Converter

MPEG is a very popular standard for video compression. It provides high compression levels without significant loss of video quality. MP4 (MPEG-4) is one of the newest video formats commonly used for storing video on computers and mobile devices. To be sure that your video will play on your smartphone or portable media player, it is best to convert it to a widely supported format, such as MP4. Read the guide below to learn about two options for converting from MPG to MP4 and the differences between formats.

How to Convert MPG to MP4 Online

Another way to convert MPG to MP4 is to use an online conversion service, such as videoconverter.com. This easy-to-use converter lets you change the format of your files to MP4 in just a few minutes. If you want to convert a video only once and don’t need any additional features, this is a good option. The online conversion tool has some downsides, though – you cannot edit or compress your videos, only one video at a time can be converted, and the file must be under 100 MB.

Open the website and click the Add Your Files button in the top left part of the screen. Next, choose the file and click Convert. Wait until the process of conversion is complete, and then hit the Download button to save the converted video on your computer.
