[Latest Updated: Nov. 23, 2018 by Kistent Waung to Convert Video]


Learn how HandBrake works on changing (GoPro) HEVC encoded video to MP4 format for playback smoothly on devices or uploading online. Another faster HEVC to MP4 converter is also shared.

HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding), also known as H.265, is a video compression standard with .mkv or .mp4 file extension. Although lauded as the next-gen of video compression, HEVC is still not adopted by many tech gangsters for high licensing fee. Thus many players and devices cannot afford to play HEVC at all. That's why the HEVC converter is much needed to convert HEVC to MP4, the most prevailing video format in multimedia world. While MP4, as a video container, can be the product of several codecs - H.265/HEVC, H.264, MPEG4 and MPEG2. That's to say, to convert HEVC to MP4, there are precisely 2 situations:

1. Convert HEVC MP4 to H.264/MPEG4/MPEG2 MP4
2. Convert HEVC MKV to H.265/H.264/MPEG4/MPEG2 MP4

With 4K movies starting to emerge, I've been wanting to convert some 2160p .mkv films to .mp4, since that's the only format my TV will play via USB. - Quoted from forum

Can any free HEVC to MP4 converter be qualified to do all of those conversions on PC or Mac? Open-sourced video transcoder HandBrake is the answer. Here we take representative transferring 4K HEVC MKV to H.264 MP4 with HandBrake on Windows for example:

Note 1: H.264 (Intel QSV) is the only option with hardware acceleration, which means the other codecs - H.265 (X265), H.264 (X264), MPEG4 and MPEG2 are not accelerated.
Note 2: Some of you may find that the picture width * height can not be set above 1920 * 1080. Well, that's because the default option under the right "Presets" is "Fast 1080p30", and only after resetting it into "Legacy" -> "Normal" can you adjust the resolution at will.

3. Click "Browse" to choose a destination to save the encoded MP4 file, and it's a must-do to type the output file name.

4. Press "Start Encode" icon to begin the HEVC to MP4 (H.264) transcoding at once.
