Free programs are good, but they often support limited formats and features.
Therefore, in this article, you will learn a practical and simple conversion tool and know about how to convert videos to formats supported by iTunes.
Why convert videos to iTunes formats?
If iTunes does not support a certain file format, it will not allow users to add such files to the device.
So what are the file format types supported by iTunes?
Generally speaking, iTunes accepts formats that can be supported by Mac’s default player or files downloaded directly from the iTunes store, such as M4V, MOV, MP4. But not all files can be played in the format you want, which is a bad situation.
Similarly, iTunes also supports limited audio formats, you can only add audio files such as MP3, WAV, AAC. This proves the necessity of a converter again.
