It depends. Free online video converter is pretty simple without the need of installing third-party software. It is perfect for small file conversion. If the video is smaller than 200MB and you have a good internet connection, online tool is a nice choice. But if you deal with large-sized video files and value for speed and security, download desktop video convert software instead, as it doesn't require internet during conversion and has no limit on video size. Besides, most online tools are not as safe as you think. They might be packaged with adware or malware.
Q4. How can I convert video without losing quality?
Converting video from one format to another refers to a process known as transcoding, which usually involves in lossy compression and results in quality loss. For no quality loss, you need to convert files without re-encoding, which is not easy for common video converters. Nevertheless, the video converter from Digiarty can do it. By utilizing the Auto Copy feature, you're able to change video format with the underlying codec, resolution, bitrate, frame rate or other elements untouched. Thus there will be no quality loss at all.
Q5. Can I convert video from HD to 4K?
It is undoubtable that you may have saved a lot of old HD video sources on your computers. Chances are you want to transform these HD videos to 4K and watch them on a 4K TV or so. So it’s likely you want to convert the video content to 4K. Can you really upscale HD video to 4K? Strictly speaking, the video is just labeled as 4k.
Explanatorily, when you try to convert an HD video like 1080p file and export it to 4K, the pixels are stretched bigger than original and the video is zoomed up to fit the 4K frame. This means you won’t get as good of quality and even worse when viewing on bigger screen. Some professional video converter tools may take advantages of AI to interpolate imaginary pixels from the adjacent pixels, apply edge enhancement and noise reduction to alleviate the lossy conversion. Quality 4k video upscaling still has a long way to go. But we are still optimistic.
