How to Convert MP4 Video on a Mac

If you’re a Windows user, please download the Windows version of Movavi Video Converter.

MPEG-4 or MP4 video files can be viewed on any platform and multimedia device, including Apple products. However, even these files sometimes need to be converted – for example, if the movie you want to transfer and watch on your iPad, iPod Touch, or Sony PSP is too large and there’s not much free space left. With Movavi Video Converter for Mac OS, you can easily convert MP4 files into a format suitable for your mobile device, using lower resolution and a smaller file size. Install this handy application and forget about format incompatibility forever! Here’s a short guide to converting MP4s on your Mac.

1. Download and Install Movavi’s MP4 Converter for Mac

Download Movavi Video Converter, open the .dmg file and install the software according to the instructions in the pop-up window. Then run the program.

2. Open the Files for Conversion

Click the Add Media button, select Add Video, and add the files you want to convert. Note that the program enables you to convert multiple files in one go.

3. Choose the Output Format

Go to the Video tab, click on the desired format category, and select the appropriate preset from the list. You can also find ready-made presets for mobile devices in the Devices tab. If you want to change the default parameters for resolution, audio bitrate, etc., you can click the cogwheel button below the list of formats and make the necessary adjustments there.

4. Convert your MP4 Video

Once the output format has been selected, choose the destination folder by clicking the folder icon. Now click the Convert button to process the files and wait until the encoding is finished. The output folder will open automatically unless you've unchecked this option before you started.

MP4 conversion is just a small part of the features this powerful Movavi software has. Thanks to support for all popular formats, you can use the program to convert MOV, MKV, FLV, MTS, VOB, WMV, and AVI to MP4, rip unprotected DVDs, or extract sound tracks into MP3 audio files. Try it and see how powerful and simple it is.
