Although WebM is a video format that is fairly widely used nowadays, it was designed as a
format for online streaming videos and is mostly found there. As such while PCs and Macs
generally have no issues playing it, other devices often don’t support it and may have
difficulty playing it.
Rather than having to find specialized apps to play WebM videos on various devices, it is
easier to simply convert them to a more universal format – such as MP4. That can be done
quickly and easily using Movavi Video Converter, and before you know it your WebM videos
will be compatible with pretty much any device you need to play it on.
If you’d like to try to convert WebM to MP4 right now, go ahead and launch Movavi Video
Converter. In the upper-left corner you’ll see an ‘Add Media’ button that you should click,
then click ‘Add Video’ and select the WebM video that you intend to convert.
Next you should open up the ‘Video’ tab in the bottom section of the interface and select
the ‘MP4’ category that will be listed there. In that category you’ll see several presets, each
of which will convert your video to MP4 in a particular resolution. If you prefer you can
select the preset for the original size, and Movavi Video Converter will not alter the
resolution of your video when it converts it.
Technically that’s all the set up that is required, but before you start to convert the video
click on the ‘folder’ icon next to the ‘Save to’ field to set the destination folder. After that’s
done, click ‘Convert’ to start converting your WebM video to MP4 as specified. Overall it
won’t take long, and when it’s done the destination folder will open up automatically.
It is worth noting that before you convert your video you could use Movavi Video Converter
to edit it, and fix shaky video footage, enhance its quality, trim out unwanted parts, rotate
or crop the frame, and more. On top of that you could compress the file down to a specific
file size by clicking on the output file size field and adjusting the slider that you’ll find there.
In addition to all of that, Movavi Video Converter is also able to convert audio and image
files between formats if need be. It can even be used to extract audio tracks from videos,
grab screenshots from video frames, or create animated GIFs out of video clips.
All in all it is safe to say that there are a lot of ways in which Movavi Video Converter can
help you to prepare your videos and other media files. For now you should have no
problems converting any WebM videos that you encounter to MP4, or to any other format
that you may need for that matter. In fact the next time you come across a video that has
any compatibility issues, you could just switch it into the format you need.
