26 Choosing a Preset In Movavi Video Converter, you can choose a preset to specify what format you want to convert your media files into. A preset is a set of specific media properties, including the format, codec, resolution, bitrate, and other parameters, that have been pre-defined to work well together. That way, you can simply select a preset instead of manually choosing the media properties every time. The presets are organized by format, usage context, or devices, so you can easily choose the preset you need, even if you're new to video conversion. To open the list of presets, click the Convert to field in the bottom part of the Movavi Video Converter window. Inside the preset list, you can either use the search bar at the bottom to quickly find the necessary preset, or browse the categories to find what you need: Video and audio formats contains a list of presets for various video and audio formats, as well as a few useful presets for changing video resolution or uploading videos to the Web. Audio formats are located at the bottom of the list. Image formats contains a list of presets for converting images Devices contains presets for converting video and audio for playing on mobile devices, TVs, media players, etc. If you open a video format group, you will see a few presets inside it. The difference between presets within a single group us usually in the resolution, as marked next to the format name: Same as input if you choose this preset, the video will retain its original resolution when converted. If you don't particularly need to change the resolution, we recommend this option to avoid losing quality. In addition, presets marked as 'Same as input' usually will convert much faster. Scale up to HD use one of these presets if you need to convert a low-resolution video to a higher resolution. Movavi Video Converter uses a special algorythm to slightly increase video quality when resizing to larger resolutions. However, please note that small resolution videos cannot be restored to true HD quality. For AVI and MP4 formats, there are also different presets for H.264 and for MPEG-4 codecs. Some presets may also have an acceleration icon next to them, meaning that if you choose one of these presets, the files will be converted much faster:

Add video files or DVDs to the program. 2. Select a video fragment that you want to extract the audio from.

To preserve the original quality, choose a preset labeled with Same as input. If you want to convert audio with multichannel sound, you can use WAV, OGG, or FLAC formats.
32 4. Check the Destination line to make sure you're saving your audio into the right folder and click Convert to start converting video into audio! * Please note that Movavi Video Converter is not intended for making illegal copies of copyrighted material.
33 Converting Audio Even though MP3 is still the most frequently used audio format, you may sometimes encounter audio in other formats, not always compatible with your player or device. On the other hand, if you're an avid music fan, some formats may retain quality better than others, such as FLAC for storing lossless music. Follow the instructions below to learn how to convert audio files. Step 1: Add Files To add audio files to the file list, click the convert. button at the top of the window and select the files you want to Step 2: Choose a Preset Click the Convert to field to open the list of presets and go to Video and audio formats. Scroll to the very bottom of the list to find audio format groups. Click on a format group to open it and then select the preset that best suits your needs. Here's everything you need to know about choosing an audio preset: General Audio this group contains presets for popular audio formats. These are useful if you just want to change the format without losing quality. Bitrate the bitrate reflects the amount of data in kilobits that is played back each second. Higher bitrate usually means higher audio quality as well as larger file size, as extra data needs to be stored within the file. For audio presets, the bitrate is listed next to the format. When you convert a file to lower bitrate, the extra bits of data are irretrievably lost, meaning that you cannot increase quality by converting audio to a higher bitrate, because the file no longer contains the data that can be used to restore higher quality. Therefore, it only makes sense to convert audio to lower bitrates or keep the original bitrate. You can find a file's audio bitrate in the Input column of the file list next to the video stream. To convert the audio file without changing the bitrate, choose the preset marked Same as input. Please note that some formats, such as MP3, do not support high bitrates: in that case the file will be converted with the maximum supported bitrate for that format. Step 3: Set a Destination Folder and Convert
34 The Destination line displays the file path to where the program will place the converted files. To change this folder, click Browse and select the necessary folder using the standard Windows dialogue. If you want to add the files to your itunes library after conversion, just tick the Add to itunes checkbox beneath the Destination line. Please note that you will need itunes 6.0 or higher installed on your computer. When you've set everything up, click Convert to start the audio processing. Your files will be ready in a few minutes at most.

40 SuperSpeed Conversion SuperSpeed conversion is an innovative technology which allows you to convert video and audio files of compatible formats up to 79 times faster than usual without quality loss. When you convert videos, most of the time is usually devoted to re-encoding the video stream from one codec to another, which often causes quality loss. With SuperSpeed mode enabled, Movavi Video Converter can skip the re-encoding process and simply copy the video stream from one format to another, effectively converting an entire video with the speed of copying and with zero quality loss. To make the most of SuperSpeed mode, select output presets that are marked with a green SuperSpeed icon ( ). This means that the videos you have added are compatible with the selected format and can be converted much faster. However, as SuperSpeed conversion does not re-encode video or audio streams, it can only accelerate conversion under the following conditions: The codec, resolution, bitrate, and other video parameters remain unchanged The video is not rotated or compressed Therefore, if you change the video resolution or any other parameters, the conversion will run as usual. Don't worry, it's still very fast! More information: Enabling SuperSpeed mode in Preferences List of formats compatible with SuperSpeed mode
41 Compatible Formats You can use the following table to check whether a particular format can be converted in SuperSpeed mode: Input formats and codecs AVI FLV Output formats M2TS MKV MOV MP4 MPG ipad3 ipad 4 Device presets* iphone 5S, Kindle Fire HDX iphone 5C, Kindle Fore iphone 4, HD 8.9" iphone 4S Kindle Fire HD 7" Kindle Fire Tablet Google Nexus 4 Google Nexus 7 Google Nexus 10 AVI (H.264) AVI (MPEG-4) FLV (H.264) M2TS (H.264) M2TS (MPEG-2) MKV (H.264) MOV (H.264) MP4 (H.264) MP4 (MPEG-4) MPG (MPEG-2) * SuperSpeed conversion to a device preset is available if the input file resolution is no higher than the device resolution: for ipad 3/4, Amazon Kindle and Google Nexus, for iphone 5/5C/5S, and for iphone 4/4S.

70 General Glossary Container Format (Video Format) A container format is a file format for storing video or audio files that contains video and audio data in separate streams, as well as any other associated data, such as subtitle tracks and additional data about the file. You can think of a container format as a box that holds together all the parts that make up a video file, as illustrated below. The container format is what you usually see when you work with video files: you can judge which format your video is in by the file extension: *.mp4 corresponds to MP4 format, *.mkv to Matroska format, etc. Codec While a video file contains video and audio streams, these streams are in turn encoded using a video or audio codec that compresses the data. You can think of a codec as a language: to play a video encoded with a certain codec, your player needs to be able to 'understand' how it was encoded, so that it can decode or decipher the file. If your computer does not know how to decode a new codec, you can fix this by converting the file to a different format or by installing a codec pack. However, please keep in mind that a lot of malware programs disguise themselves as codec packs; you should only download codec packs directly from codec manufacturers or from trusted sources. Bitrate When referring to media, bitrate is the number of bits that is played back each second. The higher the bitrate, the more details that can be conveyed with each second of the video or audio stream, and therefore, the higher the quality. There are two types of bitrate: constant bitrate (CBR) and variable bitrate (VBR). Videos with constant bitrate, as you can probably guess from the name, have the same bitrate for each and every frame of the video, no matter the complexity of the frame: simple frames, for example, those completely filled with black, have the same number of bits as complex, colorful frames. This has a number of limitations, since the simple frames take up more bits than needed to convey them, while complex frames are limited in quality. With variable bitrate, however, each frame is allotted only as many bits as it needs, without limiting quality or wasting data. In most cases, we recommend that you use variable bitrate, however, you CBR is sometimes useful for streaming media. Frame Rate The frame rate, or frames per second (FPS) is the number of video frames that is contained in a second of video. At low frame rates, you may notice that the video is 'jittery', while higher frame rates produce a smooth high-quality video. Shooting videos at high frame rates (48 or 60 FPS) requires more resources and disc space, but you can easily slow down a highfps video to produce a slow-motion effect without producing visual stutter. The industry standard for cinema frame rate is 24 or 25 frames per second, which is perceived as comfortable to the human eye. Resolution (Frame Size) Resolution is the number of pixels that can fit inside the video frame. It is usually presented as "width x height" of the frame, for example, 1280x720 or 1920x1080. Sometimes, resolutions may also be referred to as "720p" or "1080p", by the number of pixels in a frame vertically. At high resolutions, each frame is conveyed using more pixels, therefore allowing for more detail and higher quality, though taking up more disc space. Whenever you convert a video to a lower resolution, you irretrievably lose some data, but if you convert a low-resolution video to HD, the quality will stay the same. If you need to do so, however, we recommend that you use Upscale SD, DVD to HD presets in Movavi Video Converter, as they use an algorythm that slightly improves video quality when converting to larger resolutions.
