Do you have some great videos that you’d like to publish on your blog? If so then you need to know how to prepare them so that they can be published online and viewed with by your readers. When most people publish videos on their blogs they choose to do so either by:
- Providing a direct link to download the video either from their own server or a third-party, or
- Uploading it to YouTube or some other similar platform and then embedding the video on their blog.
Depending on which approach you want to use, you’re going to need to prepare your video slightly differently. In both these cases however, one thing is particularly important: You need to convert your video to the right format. That is where Movavi Video Converter will come in handy as it will let you do so without any hassle.
- Preparing a video for YouTube or other online video streams
If you’re going to be uploading your video to YouTube, Facebook or some other platform to share it then you’ll need to optimize it with the best format and settings for that platform. Different platforms tend to have different preferred format and settings, so you’ll need to look up which one will suit the platform you’re using.
- Preparing a video as a direct download link
Alternatively if you’re providing a direct download link then you’ll want to ensure that it is in a universal format so that people won’t have issues with compatibility once they do download it. Also depending on the host that you’re choosing you may want to optimize its file size so that it doesn't consume too much bandwidth.
Although preparing the video format and settings in this fashion may sound complicated, with Movavi Video Converter you can do both without too much hassle. Simply add the video to the software, choose a format, and clicking ‘Convert’ to switch the format of your videos.
Assuming you want to optimize your video for a specific online video stream platform such as YouTube or Facebook, you can select it from the hundreds of pre-sets that are available. By choosing a pre-set based on the platform you intend to use, the software will automatically use the best possible settings accordingly.
On the other hand if you’re preparing your video as a direct download you can just choose one of the more universal formats that are available, and set the output file size if you’d like to compress it and conserve bandwidth.Yet another alternative is to create a hard copy of your video you by converting MP4 to DVD.
Before you finalize the conversion, you may want to look over the other features of Movavi Video Converter that will allow you to edit your videos and improve their quality, cut and combine video segments, insert customizable text or even crop and rotate the frame. The editing features consist of the essentials that you’ll need to get your video to look the way you want it to, and will even allow you to fix some of the common issues that may come up in recordings – such as blurry, pix-elated or interlaced video.
Aside from that Movavi Video Converter actually has a host of other media conversion options that will let you convert audio and image files, extract audio from video, create animated GIFs, or save screenshots from videos. With these tools you can extend the types of media that you create for your blog, and get that much more mileage out of your videos. For example you could extract a particularly funny part of your video and create an animated GIF to display on your blog from that clip.
All these features will undoubtedly come in handy to help you to prepare videos (as well as other media files) for your blog. Not only will they ensure that you’re able to do so, but the range of tools at your disposal will open up some fairly exciting new options that you could choose to use to create the kind of compelling content that draws people’s attention and drives more readers to your blog.
