Why Convert Video (4K or otherwise)?
A commonly asked question is why would I convert video footage in the first place? Often times expensive or high-end cameras or filming equipment will recored footage in an obscure format. This includes, but is not limited to, MKV and HEVC. Not all devices can playback all formats. MP4 is basically the universal video format that 99.9% of device can play. Therefore, it’s a good idea to convert video footage to MP4 to actually be able to play it back on your device.
Beyond just being able to play the footage, converting using something like WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe also compresses (shrinks) the file size dramatically. For example, before I upload ANY video to YouTube, I compress it. In most cases, the compression is close to lossless – i.e. the video file doesn’t lose quality, but the size of it is drastically reduced. This can help with video upload times to sites similar to YouTube or DropBox for sharing.
