How to Compress and Convert MKV to 3GP with Smaller File Size on Mac

"I have a lot of MKV files on my Mac computer, now I'm wondering if there is any way to import MKV files to my HTC for watching them on the go. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated."

MKV is an open standard free container format similar to AVI. However, if you want to put MKV videos from Mac computer to your smartphone like HTC, Samsung, Nokia, etc for enjoyment on the move, format compatibility will stop you from doing so as almost all cell phones generally recognize 3GP format. On top of video compatibility, the file size is the other reason that you wanna compress and convert MKV to 3GP. See, we conduct a comparison test with a 94.7MB MP4 (AVC) video file. To convert MP4 (AVC) to MKV, we get a output file with 74.4 MB in size. Comparatively, the output 3GP file is much smaller in size, only 27.3 MB after converting MP4 (AVC) to 3GP. So, you can see the big gaps between MKV and 3GP codec compression ratio and file size. Of course, as for video quality, 3GP is inferior to MKV. If only video compatibility and file size are your concerns, you can begin to decode MKV video to 3GP on macOS now.
