Quick Start: How to use the Free MKV to MP4 Converter

Free MKV to MP4 Converter is a free program that allows you to convert Matroska video files (MKV) to MP4 format.

MP4 files created by the program can be played on many portable devices (iPhone, iPod, Samsung Galaxy, Microsoft Surface, HTC, PSP) and fixed media players (WD TV, Xtreamer, Asus O!Play). For encoding video streams, the program can use H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, or Xvid video encoder. For encoding audio streams program uses AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) or MP3 (Lame) audio encoder.

The program has a number of predefined settings (profiles) specially designed for novice users. More advanced users can customize video and audio encoding parameters used by encoder: audio and video codec, audio and video bitrate, aspect ratio, frames per second, resolution, color conversion to grayscale or sepia, change contrast and brightness, audio sampling frequency, volume and other.

Basic operation of the program is very simple: just drag & drop MKV files into main window and click Convert button on the toolbar.

At default settings, the application converts files using H.264 video encoder and AAC audio encoder, and automatically selects all the encoding parameters so as to preserve the original video and audio quality.
Created MP4 files will be compatible with HTML5 standard, so you can use it on your website.

The program is available in both 32 bit and 64 bit version. The conversion process of the 64-bit version is faster by a few to 50% (depending on the selected video encoder).
