2. Freemake Video Converter

As a video converter that has stood its ground for years, there is something extraordinary about Freemake. It allows you to convert videos, burn DVDs, and create photo slideshows. You're free to encode videos to over 500 formats, including MP4, MP3, WMV, AVI, MKV, DVD, 3GP, MOV, and others.

A slight word of warning: Freemake deliberately shows you lots of upsell attempts, when you try to use its free version. If you stick to the free option, the video converting speed seems to be intentionally slowed down and Freemake logo is added at the beginning and end of all converted videos. This is terribly intrusive. But the logo and upsells will be removed and you can enjoy smooth video conversion, once you've upgraded to the paid version.

3. 123apps Video Converter

123apps is an online video converter that is able to change video format, resolution, codec, and file size right in the web browser. It is no need to download additional software or ask for any sign up. This tool supports over 10 format like MP4, AVI, MPEG, MOV, and is known for constant update for supported codec including the new HEVC. Unlike other online video converting tools that insist on restricting number of files you can convert and watermarking each converted video, there isn't file limit or watermark in 123apps.

However, 123apps also have some cons you need to pay attention to. For example, the slow upload speed is one of the known issues. In our test, it takes about 1 minute to upload a 40MB video file. So you may spend a lot more time uploading a files over GB, despite it claims to support up to 4GB file size, let alone queuing videos. Besides, the converted file cannot be downloaded occasionally, this can be annoying. Ads are a part of the 123apps Video Converter, which can be obtrusive while you convert video file.

You can find an overwhelming number of video transcoders, either online, extensions apps, or software. What's the best video converter you can choose? Frankly, there are no precise criteria. What you need to do is to choose the one that is the most suitable for you. But some factors need to be considered.
- Support a wide range of audio formats and video formats.
- Deliver a fast video converting performance.
- Lossless output audio/image quality.
- Easy-to-use, stable and compatible with Windows and Mac platforms.

Q2. How do I convert videos to MP4?

MP4 is the most desirable format for multiple reasons including the best compatibility with devices and players. And compared to M2TS, MKV, AVI etc., MP4 is highly compressed with the same image quality. Thus, converting videos to MP4 H.264 is well recommended. There are many video converters on our list can convert to MP4, including video converter, Handbrake, and others. Many of them can do the basic conversion job in 3 steps: Load video -> Choose MP4 as output format -> Tap RUN or Start button. Done!

Q3. Online vs desktop video converting software, which one to choose?

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.
