[Solved!] How to Convert M4A to MP4 for Video Uploading?

Author by Cooper

Updated on Feb 20, 2023

Many online and desktop converters are capable of converting an audio file into a video container without a video track, such as M4A to MP4. But these files are not supported by many video-sharing sites. How to fix this problem? Read on, you can find the satisfying answer.

To be honest, when I was first asked about how to convert M4A to MP4 by my friend, I felt confused. It is well known that M4A is an audio format, while MP4 is a video format, which contains separate audio and video tracks. What’s the purpose of the preposterous conversion? After I talked to him for more detailed information, I got his intention. He tended to share his M4A files in some social sites and video sharing sites do not accept M4A audio files, so he tried to convert his audio to MP4. If you’re running into the same situation and looking for a lash-up solution, here are two reliable methods I elaborately selected. I am sure you can fix the problem smoothly.
