In the last years, watching videos on tablets or smartphones has become increasingly popular. Alongside it, video conversion software have made the way up the ladder by adding new features and better options, allowing users to convert their videos efficiently to formats supported by such portable devices.
It’s well known that MKV videos cannot run on Apple devices. However, media players like 5KPlayer support playing MKV on Mac computers, but you still need to convert MKV to MP4 when you try to edit the video, transfer to iPhone, upload to SNS platform or iCloud, etc.
Consequently, Apple users need an efficient way to convert their videos to MP4, an almost universally supported format in 2021. In order to perform this conversion, a software can be used – such as MacX Video Converter Pro, VLC, or HandBrake – but, for the purpose of this article, we chose to show how to use one of the most featured ones available on the market in 2021 – MacX Video Converter Pro.
