Why Should You Convert MP4 to H265/HEVC?

MP4 is a video container format for storing the video and audio data, codecs, and other metadata. HEVC (a.k.a. H265/x265), on the other hand, is a video codec to encode and decode digital video.

By saying converting MP4 video to HEVC, we often mean re-encoding MP4 video with HEVC codec. Since HEVC is an advanced video codec, an MP4 video encoded with HEVC can offer up to 50% better data compression at the same level of video quality when compared with H264- or MPEG4-encoded MP4. In other words, converting MP4 video to HEVC will help you reduce file size by half while not ruining the video quality.

So, if you want to save device space and not compromise your viewing pleasure, converting video with HEVC is a good way to go. And for this kind of conversion, all you need is a reliable desktop video converter like WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro. It is a simple yet powerful HEVC converter that can help you easily transcode MP4 as well as other types of videos with HEVC codec at a blazing fast speed. The following tutorial will show you how to convert MP4 to H265 with this software in detail. Read on.

Tips: You can add multiple video files into the converter for batch conversion at once.

Step 2. Choose Output Format

On the right side of the converter, click the format image to open the output format library. Then go to the Video category and select H265 for MP4 as the output format.

Tips: You can also pick MP4 or MKV as the output format and then change the encoder to H265 in the Parameter settings.

Step 3. Convert Video to HEVC

Click the bottom triangle button to specify an output path or leave it as default. Finally, hit Run to start converting MP4 file to HEVC.

Fun Fact:

All video transcoding leads to video quality loss to some degree. The difference is that some conversions won’t cause a visible quality drop, such as using the H265 codec. The only lossless video conversion is changing the video container, which is also called remux.


Some online video converters can convert MP4 to x265, too. Yet, we don’t suggest them, for they usually process slower (considering the upload time and your network condition) and are covered with ads. The desktop software, however, is free of those limitations.

That’s all for how to convert MP4 file to HEVC with the recommended MP4 to HEVC converter. If you have any questions during the conversion process, you can contact me on Twitter. I’ll be glad to help. Thanks for reading.
