Whether you are using a laptop, tablet or smart phone, watching videos on it is something you will have to do at some point. However, this is not always an easy task, since some video files are not responsive and cannot be played on any device. It often occurs that you want to watch a movie, but you cannot because of the poor sound or image, its format or even because the subtitles do not match the image. These are only some of the most popular reasons for which users have difficulties in playing mp4 files on any device, and if this has been happening to you, then you should start thinking about a solution. Fortunately, the internet is such a resourceful place, and nowadays you are likely to find a wide variety of free video converters. These are not only very performing but will also spare you some additional costs, unlike other pieces of software you are obliged to buy. You can simply convert your files, change their format and then watch them on any device, from a smartphone to a Chromebook.

 

You do not have to pay

The main advantage of a free converter is, of course, the fact that you do not have to pay for it. This way, you will be able to benefit from performing services while also spare the money you would normally pay for a converter. All you have to do is conduct some research and find out which is the most reputable software available online, then download it to your computer, unless you choose one that works directly through your browser such as Firefox or Chrome.

 

The results will be of high quality

Any video file is generally made of two main components: the container format and the codecs inside of it that hold the video and audio information. Sometimes, after a media file is modified (converted or compressed), loss of data may appear and this leads to bad (or lack of) sound, image and subtitles. This is due to the fact that the program shrinks the content too much and takes out too much useful information due to high compression or anĀ  outdated codec used. This however will not happen if you use a professional converter. You need to remember that conversion will never improve the quality of your videos: but you will get the same quality as the initial file at a smaller file size.

 

The converter can modify a wide range of formats

Whether you need to watch a video on the phone or on your PC, a converter will make this possible. Most such pieces of software can modify various formats, such as AVI, MOV, MPG and MP4, so that you can enjoy watching the video wherever you want. If the program is web based, then all you have to do is drag the file into the browser, choose the correct settings, and the converter web app will do its job flawlessly.
