Many music lovers use SoundCloud as a platform of preference to listen to and download music. Some people also want to save SoundCloud tracks in the form of MP4 video for specified usages. The fact is there is no direct way to implement the SoundCloud to MP4 conversion, but you can follow this post to do it in these two ways:
SoundCloud only supports audio uploads. Suppose you simply convert SoundCloud to MP4 with a file converter, you will only get an audio track ended with the .mp4 extension. Except for a bigger file size, there is no difference. However, if what you want to come by is a typical video file that is compatible with video players and supported by the likes of YouTube or Facebook, it is necessary to take a few more steps to turn the downloaded SoundCloud music into a video. Or you can go to YouTube to download ready-mixed SoundCloud video music uploaded by the original owner. A large number of SoundCloud music can be found on YouTube.
