How to Convert MOV to MP4 with Ease

What is a MOV file?

MOV is a multimedia file format developed by Apple, containing videos, audios, texts, pictures, subtitles, etc., in a single file. MOV files are compatible with Mac and Windows platforms and are widely used in Apple products such as the Mac, iPhone, and iPad.

MOV vs. MP4

While MP4 files can play on most devices, MOV is not supported by certain media players, mobile devices, and websites. For example, you might be unable to play MOV videos on Android tablets or smartphones because Android doesn’t support the MOV format. In this case, you must convert MOV to MP4 through a video converting program such as Bandicut. Moreover, MP4 is typically more compressed and smaller in size, while MOV files are often higher in quality and larger in size.

To sum up, if you are editing in a professional setting and need the highest possible quality, MOV may be the better choice since MOV files contain high bitrate video files with less compression. On the other hand, MP4 is the better choice for playing, uploading, and streaming purposes due to its superior compression and device compatibility compared to MOV.
