How to Convert a Video

How to Convert a Video
  1. Upload a file
    Upload a video that you'd like to convert. Your video could be in any format that you wish. If your video is in a non-browser playable format, it will be converted to mp4 on the initial upload.
  2. Choose Export Type
    Click Export Project to select the output you would like your video to be converted to. You can choose to convert to a GIF, JPEG, MP3, or MP4. Before finalizing your conversion, you can also trim your video or edit it to best fit your own needs.
  3. Export and Share
    Hit Export to process the converted video. Download, save, and share your newly created video with your friends. With Kapwing's quick conversion process, your video should now be more compatible and usable on all surfaces.

Convert Video Files Online for Free

When your video is uploaded to Kapwing, you can make any edits to your video, or you can go straight to conversion by clicking Export Project on the right sidebar. Then, a new sidebar will pop out that will list your export options. The options are MP3 for saving the audio from videos with music, JPEG for saving a specific screenshot image from the video, GIF for short animated images clipped from the video, and MP4 for converting MOV, FLV, AVI, and other video files, or saving videos from the web straight to your files. Once you have made your selection, simply press the Export button at the bottom to create your newly converted video.

When sharing your content, you want to make sure your files are in a format that is universally accepted and reliable. Video file types like FLV, WEBM, and AVI don't always play correctly on all devices, and with Kapwing these files can be easily converted to a more widely accessible container format like MP4.

Uploading various file types that are not natively playable in the browser will trigger a conversion on upload. You'll see these conversions happen in real time for files like FLVs, WAVs, WMVs, AVIs, and more. These file formats will be converted to mp4 for ease of use and transfer.

In addition to converting, you can also trim, combine, crop, and resize your videos, as well as add music, text, animations, and transitions to them. Kapwing is a powerful tool to convert your video to another format, and to help you take your content to the next level!

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

How do I change the format of a video file?

To change video files to the format you need, you can use a video converter. A video converter will allow you to upload your video and convert the video file into something different, like a GIF or a JPEG. Keep in mind that converting your video into a different format will also change the frame rate and size of the file, depending on the end format you're converting to.

How do I convert videos to MP4 for free?

The best way to convert videos to MP4 for free is by using Kapwing, a free online video editor where you can upload and convert your video into different formats with no charge. Whether you have a .MOV or .AVI file you want to convert to MP4, you can convert videos for free on Kapwing without having to sign up or install any software.

How do I convert a video to a GIF?

You can convert a video to a GIF using a video converter. Converting a video to a GIF is a file format conversion process that turns video file formats, usually MP4s, into image file formats in the form of a GIF. In this process, your video will have its sound removed and frame rate slightly decreased, as GIFs are images that do not contain sound, and do not have the same compression heuristics as video file formats do.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
