Mobile devices nowadays are becoming more and more widely used as mediums of watching videos. Some people even prefer to watch entire TV shows and feature films on their tablets or other mobile devices – and the display quality on many of the newer devices is in Full HD or better.

Of course there is one brick wall you’ll run into at some point or other if you’re storing videos to watch on your mobile devices, and that is your available storage space. Although advancements have been made over the years, most mobile devices are still limited in terms of their storage space and storing high quality video content is a surefire way to ensure that you very quickly run out of space.

The solution to that problem is simple however: Optimize your videos before storing them on mobile devices. As far as that is concerned, there are two different approaches you could use:

Best-possible quality

Different mobile devices tend to have varying capabilities in terms of the resolution, bit rate, and frame rate that they can support. Also due to their ability to play different formats and codecs, certain compressions may or may not be compatible. Optimizing videos for mobile devices in this way involves ensuring they are in the best possible quality – but not more than that so as to not waste space.

Smaller file size

On the flipside it is possible to focus on minimizing the file size while accepting a certain loss in quality. When optimizing videos with this approach, a balance is often struck between the loss in quality and the file size.

Using the Movavi Video Converter, you’ll be able to choose between either of these approaches and optimize your videos easily or convert them from MP4 to AVI, MOV, WMV or any other format. If you want to use the first option you could simply use the presets that are available to automatically use the best possible video format and settings for any given device. Alternatively you could adjust the video settings manually, or even specify the size of the output file and have the software arrange the rest.

Along with allowing you to compress and optimize your videos, the Movavi Video Converter also has a host of other features that will let you trim unwanted footage, enhance the video quality, convert audio and video files, extract the audio from video and much more. With these options you should be able to ensure that your video is ideal for the mobile device you want to use it on.
