We love windows phones as it is tightly integrated with Microsoft services but the native video player supports only H.263, WMV, MOV, MP4 and H.264 formats. But if you want to play an MKV or FLV file that you grabbed from Internet? Well for that you have to either install the clunky MoliPlayer Pro or use a video converter to properly encode those videos for your windows phone.
Supported video and audio formats supported by Movavi video converter include AVI, MP4, FLV, MPEG-1,2, MOV, MKV, WMV, VOB, 3GP, WebM, OGV, SWF, MP3, AAC, WAV and more. The Movavi video format converter lets you convert just about any media out there, be it an audio, video, images of even DVD video. The app makes of special algorithms that let you convert up to 79 times faster with support for instant video trimming.
You also get some nifty video editing tools such as trim, crop, rotate, flip, improve quality, adjust sound volume and so on. To get started, first download the application from Movavi’s website and install it on your computer. The installer is about 34 mega bytes in download size so it should take only a few seconds. Once you have downloaded the installer, double click on it to start the installation. Simply follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.
Start the program and browse for the files which you want to convert. Now select the format which you want to convert. Since we are converting for windows phone operating system, choose either WMV or MP4 since either can be played using the inbuilt video player.
If you are using a low resolution windows phone, then we suggest changing the resolution as well. Doing this will save considerable amount of space. However if you are using a high end Lumia device like Lumia 1520 then simply choose the present for it. It comes with predefined presents for iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Tab 4, HTC One mini 2, Sony Xperia Z2, BlackBerry Z30, Nokia Lumia 1520, LG G3, Sony PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and more.
You will now be asked to specify the destination folder. It is in this folder the final converted files will be saved. Your default video folder will be chosen if you do not specify one. Now that you have input all the settings, you can press the Convert button to start the conversion process. Since the Movavi video converter makes use of advanced algorithms, the total conversion process will not take up lot of time if you are using a powerful computer.
