Part 1: Why we need to convert video to H.264 codec?

Video conversion is the process of converting videos from one format into another, where the format of a video comprises its resolution, the video and audio codecs in use, the aspect ratio, the bit rate, and the container format. Videos need to be converted when their original format does not play on a tablet/smartphone/smart tv or work for a particular distribution channel. Videos may also need to be converted to reduce their file size for easier sharing, editing, storage or playback.

Although H.265 is better than H.264 in some aspects, H.265 is far less popular than H.264 in terms of compatibility. For example, many video editing software can't import GoPro Hero 9 H.265 video, newly bought tablet can't play downloaded HD H.265 movie, and so on. If you collect a lot of Blu-ray and DVD discs, download HD movies in MKV, MOV, MP4, AVI, WMV, etc., formats. You'd better convert these video files to H.264 encoded video format.

Here are some reasons you might want to convert a video:

- You have a video file with a format or codec that your computer's media player won't play.
- Someone asks you to send a video as an H.264 MP4 file, but your file is an VOB, MTS, AVI, MKV, H.265 file.
- Your editing software can't recognize your MXF, MTS, MPEG-4, DNxHD, ProRes video material.
- You want to save and play a Blu-ray DVD or large movie file on a tablet.
- Your device's screen does not support 4K or other HD resolution.
- You want to email a video that is above your email attachment size limit.
- You want to convert a video for faster uploading to Vimeo, TikTok, Youtube, etc.

NOTE: It's important to distinguish between video container formats and compression formats, or codecs. For example, MP4 is a container, and can hold different types of video compression, for example, MPEG-2 Part 2, MPEG-4 AVC, or H.265, as well as audio and metadata. Some codecs can be wrapped in multiple different containers. Containers are sometimes referred to as file extensions, e.g. MKV, M4V, or AVI, but it's important to remember that there can be different types of video within these video formats.

Users Reviews

I have used some free software, which is not what I want, either can not be used, or the conversion speed is slow. Pop up ads are what I hate the most. Acrok's software is green, and I think it's worth the money.
Whalen, Ed

Collecting classic movies is my hobby. I'm also a movie fan. The disc market is shrinking rapidly. This is the best time for me to collect old movies. Your software comes in handy.
