How to Convert Video for a Website with Movavi Video Converter

Often you will find that it helps to convert videos before you upload them onto a website. If you’re using a video sharing platform such as YouTube and embedding your video from it, then you may want to follow the recommended format and settings. On the other hand if you’re self-hosting a video on your website then you may want to compress it and use a compression-friendly format to conserve bandwidth on your webhost.

In either case the bottom line is that being able to convert videos is essential when you intend to publish them on websites. Don’t worry if you’ve never converted a video in the past though – as Movavi Video Converter will make it an almost painless task.


To convert your video to any format you require, just follow these steps:

  1. Click ‘Add Video’ and select the video that you intend to convert.
  2. Open the ‘Convert to’ list and select a format or one of the presets to automatically set up the optimal settings for a particular device or platform.
  3. Click on the value in the ‘Output’ column and adjust the sliders if you want to compress the video.
  4. Click ‘Convert’ to start the conversion.

When you start to use Movavi Video Converter, you’ll immediately notice that it supports all kinds of video formats – including some of the latest online video formats such as WebM. As such you can opt to convert MP4 to WebM, MOV, AVI, or any other format you need. Additionally the selection of presets available are just as comprehensive, so if necessary you should be able to easily locate one for the device or platform that you’re using.

It would be also worth your while to explore the other features that are included in Movavi Video Converter. As you do you’ll realize that it can do far more than simply convert videos, and can even convert audio and image files too. In fact it can be used to cut and combine video segments, enhance the quality of videos, create animated GIFs, insert customizable text, grab screenshots, extract audio tracks from videos, and much more.

With so many helpful features, odds are you will probably only scratch the surface of Movavi Video Converter initially. Still that will be more than enough for you to convert (or even compress) your videos before you upload them to your website.
