MKV used to be a very popular video format but over the past few years, its popularity has gone downright spiral. They are not natively playable on mobile devices like iPhone and android. Often, the playback is not exactly as smooth as other formats. So it is a good idea to convert those files to MP4 which is currently the most popular video file format. You can play MP4 file on any device including iPhone, Windows, Android, Macintosh, Linux and windows phone without needing any additional third party app.
The best way to do is by installing Movavi video converter app which makes conversion of mkv to mp4 a piece of cake. To start, get the official installation file from the website of Movavi. There are two versions available – one is for windows and another is for Macintosh. Installation is pretty straightforward, irrespective of the operating systems.
After installation, start the app. Click on the “Add Video” button to specify the files required for conversion. You can multiple files and even folders as the Movavi video converter supports batch file conversion. After this, we must tell the app that we need to convert the MKV videos to MP4. For that, click on the drop down menu located besides the label that says “Convert to”. The drop down list contains the list of codecs supported by the app. Select MP4 720P from the list.
Located just beneath is Destination field where you can specify the output folder. This will where the converted files will be stored. If you do not specify destination folder, the default one will be used. The default is same as input folder. You can now click on the Convert button to start the conversion process. After the process has completed, the output folder will open and you can then play them or transfer them to the devices of your choice.
Movavi video converter makes use of highly advanced algorithms to reduce the conversion times. It also has support for Nvidia CUDA technology and hardware encoding that further reduces the time to convert the video.
The application also supports image and audio conversion. The process is similar to video conversion. Another very nifty feature of the Movavi video converter is the ability to rip videos from DVD media. These videos are saved just like normal video files, ready to be shared with your friends and people you know.
