As more and more online videos shift to HTML5, the use of WebM has grown in popularity. However outside of online streaming videos it is still not as widespread, and many devices (particularly older ones) may have problems playing it.
While you may be able to find specialized WebM players for some devices that may not always be an option. In any case, rather than downloading an entirely new player just for one format – it would be far better to convert WebM to the format that you need using Movavi Video Converter.
Despite the fact that it sounds difficult, converting WebM videos to any format is really quite simple if you’re using Movavi Video Converter. To get started you just need to launch the software then add the WebM video by clicking on the ‘Add Media’ button then ‘Add Video’ so that you can browse and select it.
Once the video has been added it will be displayed in the main working area of Movavi Video Converter. Below in the bottom part of the interface it you’ll see several tabs, one of which is labeled ‘Video’ and if you click on it you’ll be able to select pretty much any video format you require. For example if you wanted to convert WebM to MP4, you’d select the MP4 category then choose one of the presets under it.
One of the other tabs in that same area will be labeled ‘Devices’, and as you can guess it will contain presets for various devices. If you aren’t sure which format is best or wish to optimize your video for a particular device you could select one of these presets and Movavi Video Converter will automatically adjust the format and video settings accordingly.
Assuming you’re satisfied with the format or preset you’ve selected, you can click ‘Convert’ when you’re ready. It is worth noting that Movavi Video Converter has numerous other features that you can use to convert audio and image files, compress videos, edit and improve them, or even perform other tasks such as create animated GIFs, extract audio tracks, and so on.
Considering how easy it is to simply convert WebM videos to the format you need with Movavi Video Converter, in the long run it is definitely the best option. More importantly you’ll also have the ability to do the same thing with any other videos in incompatible formats, which will save you from a lot of hassle too.
