Need to convert MP4 to MPEG-4 for easy video playback on MPEG4-compatible players? Here is a simple way to do it.
MP4 is a video container, while MPEG-4 is a codec. You can encode MP4 through the MPEG-4 codec to get your video to play on MPEG-4 players. And all you need is a good video conversion program.
WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro is an excellent program for video and audio conversion, and it can be the perfect MPEG4 converter to convert MP4 to MPEG-4 video. Compared with similar software, this converter has a faster conversion speed (with hardware acceleration support) and allows batch conversion. It also has pretty good output quality. In addition, it is very easy to use the converter as the whole conversion takes only a couple of clicks.
Launch HD Video Converter Factory Pro your PC desktop and select the “Converter” module. Next, hit the center + button or the upper-left “Add Files” to import your MP4 files into the interface. You can also drag the source videos into the conversion list directly.

While many people refer to MPEG4 as MP4, they are not the same thing. MPEG4 is a video encoding method, called a codec, that can encode video in an MP4 container, which can also be encoded through H264 and HEVC/H265. Codec matters because it determines whether the video is playable on certain devices. Your target device must have the relevant decoder to decode the video; otherwise, a conversion is required.
In this article, we have shown you how to convert MP4 to MPEG-4 for smooth playback on MPEG4-compatible players. With the same program, you can also convert to MPEG4 from other videos. I hope you enjoyed this post and found the method useful. Thanks for reading till the end. Have a nice day!
