Video converters are absolutely essential tools for anyone and allow us to convert videos to different formats like MP4, AVI, MOV, MKV, among other formats.

In this article you will find a very comprehensive list of free video converters for Windows 10 and Mac but you will also find the best online video converters that you can use from any internet connected device.

What is MP4 video?

The video format in MP4 is well known and one of the most compatible formats with mobile devices such as smartphones or ipads. MP4 uses a compression algorithm that encodes audio data video, optimizing its quality for archiving, encoding and distribution in networks.

At first it had some compatibility issues with some video and audio players, but over time all players have accepted this new video format as a standard.

What is the best video format?

With the AVI format you get high quality but too heavy videos, so its use for the Internet is not recommended. There are several compression codecs for REVIEWS, but DivX and XviD offer the best quality-compression ratio. MP4 format can have very good quality but file weight will always be higher than AVI format with DivX codec.
