Frequently Asked Questions

To convert a video to MP4, you can download a separate video converter app or software. With our intuitive video editor, you can convert a video to MP4 to edit it with your other footage, upload it on our online video editor, drag and drop it on our video editing timeline along with your other assets, then download your edited video as an MP4.

The easiest way to do so is to compress it in a ZIP file. But if the file is still too big, consider converting it into a lower quality file. If your client or recipient requires the high-res version, using a cloud service is the ideal way to go. If you’re editing your video on our online editing platform, you can share a link to your draft. You can even control their editing access to the video.

It depends on your purpose. If you need to share your video across various online platforms, MP4 is the best way to go. MP4s are compression-friendly and will not lose their audio and video quality upon compression. AVI has a higher quality and is the best option if you intend for your video to be played on big screens. Compressing them for digital platforms is necessary as their file sizes tend to run large. However, this can lead to a dip in the video and audio quality.
