WinX Video Converter: How to Convert 4K Videos for Free

These days 4K videos have become pretty common, it should come as no surprise that there is also a need to convert those 4K videos. One of the main factors driving the increase in raw 4K videos is that an increasing number of smartphones have 4K capable cameras. This was pretty much unprecedented a few years ago. But now shooting 4K videos with the camera is a very common sight.

And why wouldn’t you shoot in 4K video if your smartphone or your camera supports it? 4K offers higher resolution and crisp picture quality. The higher the better, right? Well, not always. Shooting videos in 4K brings with it a range of other problems. The first being that a lot of social media websites and applications don’t have native 4K support. That means that those videos you took on your recent trip to Italy won’t be supported on social media sites like Instagram.

Another huge problem people shooting videos in 4K face is compatibility. Some phones and camera equipment encodes 4K videos in HEVC or VP9 format, which are really great for compression. Meaning they take less amount of space on your device. But these encoding cause compatibility issues as those videos are not supported by every player or device. There is no point in shooting a 4K video if you cannot see it later.

4K videos are also known to be very large. Since they are shot at higher resolution. These files alone can be so large that it is impossible to upload them online.

So, how do you solve these problems? Well, the simplest way to get over the compatibility issues is to convert your 4K video into a more common format like a MP4 file. But the converting process can become tedious in and of itself. When looking for free 4K video converter tools online you come across many options. And since you are not an expert, you don’t know which option is the right one for your needs.

Most of the 4K video converters out there run very outdated algorithms to convert your videos, it can be a very time-consuming affair. And it doesn’t have to be.
