Converting videos or dealing with odd video file formats doesn't have to be tricky. VideoProc Converter can help with these — and other — video-related issues.

For the most part, video files are relatively simple to navigate on macOS. You get a file, click on it, and it opens and plays on your computer. However, if the video isn't in the proper format, the process isn't as straightforward.

If you've ever received a video file in an MKV or WMV file, you probably were greeted with an "unable to play video" message. Sometimes, you may even run into issues with playing 4K or HDR files on your TV or computer.

Video-related issues go beyond not being able to play a video file. For instance, if you want to convert a YouTube video to MP3, the process can get complicated. Occasionally, videos will play on Mac but won't be supported in editing software or a platform's upload page.

In any of these cases, VideoProc Converter can help. Here's everything you need to know about the software.
