How to convert videos of any format with Wondershare UniConverter

Wondershare UniConverter allows you to convert videos of any format and offers several other tools for those who work with videos

It may seem strange that, in the middle of the 21st century, video conversion for different formats is still a necessity, but this is the reality in which we live. With an increasing number of devices using screens, the number of places we can use to watch a video is increasing, but not all formats are always accepted by all devices.

This is a problem that anyone who has ever needed to use the company or college computer to submit a project has passed at least once in their life. The safest recommendation in these cases is to have the file of any video that needs to be shown in the presentation for offline access, so as not to be surprised by flaws in the internet of the place. But many times a video that runs smoothly on your computer ends up not being recognized in the place where you will present it due to the format.

Therefore, it is a common recommendation to always use your videos in MP4 format, which is considered the international standard for video files and, therefore, can normally be played on any device. But many times the video you want to present is in a format that does not have such a broad support – MOV, for example. In such cases, the best way out is to use a video conversion program – and the best software for that is Wondershare UniConverter.

It will be possible to note that the screen is now divided into three columns: on the left, we have a preview of the chosen video, in the middle a column of Origin (where you can see information about the video you want to convert), and on the right a column of Target, with information about the final format that you will convert the selected video.

The Target column is clickable and, in doing so, you open a menu of formats made available by UniConverter for conversion. In this menu you can find four tabs: one of them is Video, where you can choose from dozens of formats (MP4, MKV, AVI, etc.) to convert your video, in addition to also being able to modify the final quality of this conversion, being able to keep the same as the original or force a specific resolution.

When selecting a format from this tab, UniConverter will ignore the entire visual part of the video and convert only its audio to a new file in the format of your choice.
