HDV Converter: How Can I Convert HDV Files to MP4

by Christine Smith • 2020-03-31 21:12:39 • Proven solutions

Similar to AVCHD’s high-definition recording (preferably for burning into a Blu-ray disc), HDV is also a high-definition recording but was originally meant for storing in a physical tape. However, it is now also available in the form of media file-base. It is certainly much easier to perform the editing or multiplexing through the media file rather than the actual tape. However, there might not be a suitable player that could upload and play HDV files (normally in MTS or M2TS format), let alone to edit HDV videos.

For your information, Windows XP (support will no longer be after the 8th of April, 2014) and Vista currently do not support the HDV video files. On the other hand, you would also have difficulties trying to upload or playback your HDV video files even though file formats are supported by Windows 7, 8 and 10. If that ever happens, try to troubleshoot your Windows Media Player. If it doesn't work for you, you can only try to convert HDV to MP4. On that note, the best HDV to MP4 converter will be introduced in the following parts with detail steps.

Part 1. How to Convert HDV to MP4 Easily on Windows/Mac
