HEVC to MP4 Converter: Fast Change UHD H.265 Video to MP4 on Win 10/Mac

Learn how HandBrake works on changing HEVC encoded video to MP4 format for playback smoothly on TV, mobile and more. 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
