There are many ways to convert HEVC to MOV today. Here, I will introduce the most efficient method to help you convert HEVC files to MOV fast & easy & trouble-free. Without further ado, let’s get started.

Note: HEVC, a.k.a. H265/x265, is a video codec, while MOV is a video container. A codec cannot be converted to a container or the other way around. By saying converting the HEVC file to MOV, we often mean converting H265 MKV/MP4 to H264/MPEG-4 (video codec) MOV. Since HEVC is an advanced codec mainly used in 4K videos, HEVC-to-MOV conversion could be CPU-intensive, and a power video converter is required for this kind of conversion.

Besides the method mentioned above, another popular way to convert HEVC to MOV files is to use an online video converter. Simply upload, convert, and download, you get your video converted without installing any software or plugins. It seems really convenient this way. But you’ll know that is not always the case once you’ve tried such service. What also happens is that you can’t upload your video (some codecs and formats, such as HEVC, could be not supported), the conversion is taking too long (especially for high-quality videos of large size), or the process gets stuck in the middle (due to unstable internet connection). There could even be security issues concerned. Given these, I don’t suggest converting the HEVC file to MOV online. Instead, I would recommend using the desktop converter for it can deliver a more stable and smooth conversion. By the way, HD Video Converter Factory Pro has a free version that can also convert HEVC movies to MOV format with high quality completely for free. Though the speed is relatively slow.
