How to Convert MP4 to MPEG-2
MP4 is one of the most used video formats. You can find and gain files in this format very easily, either from internet or from your devices like iPhone and digital camcorder etc. Propably, you have already had a lot of MP4 files stored on your computer. In order to enjoy these wonderful MP4 files better, conveting MP4 to MPEG-2 for playback in a standalone DVD Player will, without a doubt, be a great idea. And if you also have such an amazing idea to convert MP4 to MPEG-2 for playing on DVD player or burning DVD later, an intelligent MP4 to MPEG-2 converter is necessary.
For this purpose, Wondershare Video Converter ( Video Converter for Mac ) is strongly recommended. This smart app allows you to quickly and easily convet one or several MP4 files simultaniously to MPEG-2 files with high video quality output and super-fast conversion speed. Another reason why I like it so much is to direcly let users burn MP4 files to DVD discs (DVD folder, ISO and IFO also included). This feature is very useful for those who convert MP4 to MPEG-2 for DVD burning later, greating saving users' time.
