Add MOV or Quicktime files

The software interface is simple & easy to operate. Click the "+Video" to add MOV files that you want to convert or compress to MP4. You may also drag-n-drop them into the program.

Unlike online MOV to MP4 converters, Freemake Video Converter accepts all types of Quicktime MOV files (large HD, medium, small). The only thing to keep in mind is that your MOV files should not be protected.

The video converter can convert either single MOV video or a batch of video files at once as well as convert large MOV to MP4.

If your movie has several audio and subtitles tracks, select the necessary ones before converting it. Please note that you can choose only one audio and one subs track. You can preview before the conversion if you've made the right choice in the inbuilt Freemake editor.
