What is MP4? How much do you know about MP4 video format or how to convert MP4 to HEVC? MP4 or MPEG-4 Part 14 is a container format which can be used to store video, audio and text. Common MP4 codecs include H.264, H.265/HEVC, MPEG4, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, VP8, VP9, MP3, AAC, PNG, JPEG and MPEG timed text. The widely supported video codecs of MP4 are H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10) and MPEG4. Other video codecs are less used.

As is known to all, about the comparison between H.264 and MPEG4, H.264 is superior to MPEG4 no matter in compression rate or image quality. But, the new HEVC codec doubles the compression efficiency compared with H.264 (H.265 VS H.264) and it can save 50% bit rate at the same video quality. According to test, a video file encoded with H.264 is 1-3X larger than H.265. That is to say, you need more storage space to store H.264 or MPEG4 codec MP4 video. And it can perfectly explain why so many people wanna transcode MP4 to HEVC/H.265. Thus, the next tutorial will show you the simplest way to decode any codec MP4 video to H.265 on Mac/Win with intact quality reserved.
