What bitrate should I use when encoding my video? How do I optimize my video for the web?
In modern life today, we can easily upload and share our videos on streaming sites. And MP4 is considered the preferred format to stream videos because it’s compatible with most devices, players, and platforms. However, many people are bothered by poor video quality after uploading. How to optimize the video? The following article shares an effective solution by changing bitrate of MP4. Besides, the recommended encoding settings for bitrate and resolution are provided at the end of this article.
It’s not a difficult task to alter the bitrate of MP4 with a good video bitrate converter. Here, I'd recommend WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro. It’s well designed to convert video/audio files and change the related parameters including bitrate, resolution, frame rate, audio channels, sample rate, volume, etc. It also provides advanced codecs such as H.264 and H.265, which enable you to re-encode MP4 videos to smaller ones. Next, I will show you how to do the bitrate conversion with this MP4 bitrate converter.
Run HD Video Converter Factory Pro and select Converter from the five function parts. Click Add Files to import the source MP4 video files. You can also directly drag and drop the files into the MP4 bitrate converter.
Go to the output format section in the upper right corner. Pick MP4 under the Video tab as the output format. You can also choose other formats to convert MP4, such as MP4 to AVI, MOV, WMV, MKV, H.264, etc.
Click the Parameter settings button under the format image on the right side. Here provide both video and audio setting options. Navigate to the Bit rate box and select an existing bitrate value from the drop-down list. Or tick on the “pencil” icon to customize a specific bitrate for your video. Then click OK to save the changes.
Click the inverted triangle button to set an output destination. Finally, press Run to start the conversion and export the final MP4 videos with higher/lower bitrate.
