Why do I need to convert video for iPhone?

It would seem that now almost anything is possiblewatch online or via streaming services &#8211; but what to do if there is no access to the Internet, or you need to save traffic - for example, if you are preparing for a long trip?

In such situations you have to download the videoin advance &#8211; but such videos are not always played on iPhone. And, conversely, videos shot on an iPhone are not always reproduced correctly on a computer and in video editors. Possible reasons:

  • Files in formats like MKV, AVI and FLV are not readable on the iPhone, iPad and several other devices.
  • The HEVC codec does not work with older versions of QuickTime, Photos, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Windows Media Player, Adobe.
  • Videos shot on iPhone at 4K @ 60fps are not smoothly played in players like VLC.
  • Videos shot on GoPro, digital cameras and drones are often not played on iPhone / iPad due to incompatible formats.
  • The iPhone may also not play music in some formats.

HEVC &#8211; a new video codec thatSupported on iPhone 7/7 Plus and older. Therefore, videos shot on new iPhones may not play on older iPhones, as well as in some video players and programs.

In addition, often the original video&#8220;weighs&#8221; too much because the resolution is too high, which is higher than the screen of your iPhone. If you reduce the resolution of such a video, its size will also decrease &#8211; which means you'll save space on your phone and won't sacrifice video quality.

For example, in iPhone 7, the screen resolution is1334 x 750 pixels. That is, you will not notice the differences when watching a movie in 4K resolution (4096 × 3072) or 1334 x 750. At this location on the drive, the 4K version will take many more.


How to deal with it?

Video conversion allows you to adaptvideo for viewing on your device. For example, VideoProc video editor, which we have already told you before, supports over 420 presets for a huge number of devices (from iPhone, iPad and various models of Android smartphones to YouTube, Facebook and Instagram). Because of this, you do not need to make any settings manually: just select the desired video, specify what device you have, and the program will do everything for you.

VideoProc allows you to work with 4K video even onWeak computers thanks to the integrated video card acceleration technology. With this program you can easily convert video and audio of any format without loss of quality. In addition, as already mentioned, the editor has predefined profiles for exporting videos that you can play on your iPhone:

  • Convert MKV, FLV, AVI, etc. to MP4 or MOV that &#8220;readable&#8221; on Apple mobile devices.
  • Transfer audio files to AAC, MP3, AIFF, M4A for playback on your iPhone, iPad or iPad.
  • Convert video from digital camera, GoPro or drone to iPhone compatible format in one click.
  • Turn your favorite tracks into ringtones for the iPhone without complicated additional settings.
  • Convert video shot in HEVC to H.264 for viewing on older iPhones and iPads.

Later in this article we will show you how to do this,and also what additional features the program offers in case you want to not only convert a video, but also make some changes to it &#8211; for example, remove the black bars at the top and bottom or add subtitles.
