QuickTime is the default media player on OS X and if you’re happened to be familiar with it, it can be an option to convert videos to MP4. QuickTime can play quite a few file formats, but it can’t play everything. For example, it can’t play the increasingly popular MKV format, which is why many people have turned to VLC as an alternative.
Although Finder is just a file management tool on your Mac, its context menu does contain some useful options that can help you get your video conversion job done. The option to “Encode Selected Video Files” lets you quickly convert the video to MP4 so you can then play it on your desired device.
VLC Player is a free, open-source video player that can play any video and it can also convert your video files into the MP4 format. It can be a substitute for professional video converters if your needs are minimal and basic. If you need to convert many video files simultaneously, it is better to use other video converters.
5. Online Conversion
If you use a conversion website you’ll need to upload the video first. Even if the conversion website doesn’t have a size limitation (and many do), the upload process alone could take hours. If you have a long video file to convert, the online conversion may not be a good choice.
