In DigitalMakers we know that as responsible for marketing your company, sometimes you need to convert videos to MP4 to share them or to spread them with your customers, workers or suppliers. Therefore, in this article we give you some advice on what are the best tools to do it according to the objective you seek when converting your video to MP4.

Why is the MP4 format useful?

This video format works very well for the websites because it weighs little and its quality-weight ratio is very good. That is, with the MP4 format you get a video of considerable quality avoiding the excessive weight they have, for example, other video formats such as AVI.


What is the purpose of your conversion to MP4?

Depending on the objective of converting your video, we can recommend different options. If you want to share content with your users (workers, customers, suppliers, etc.), you can upload the video on platforms like YouTube or Vimeo instead of sending it by mail or WeTransfer. Sharing your video on YouTube or Vimeo has many advantages:
  • You save incompatibilities between formats
  • Avoid uploading and downloading files, which depending on the connection may be long
  • Avoid having to convert formats, as these platforms accept a multitude of different video formats.

Are you worried about privacy?

These platforms have protection systems for your videos so that only the people you choose have access to them. You can also protect videos with passwords so that only the content you choose can access.
